Hi All,

Time for some images...you know the drill:
I'll post up to the forum limit and then someone just add a quick response post so I can continue; that way we keep all the posts in one long thread.
-------------------------

As CineSea goes on, some patterns emerge. Gary Crawford and I drove up together as usual, and we arrived on Thursday, as did Doug Meltzer. The extra time is well worth it, to be able to settle in and go for a walk, weather permitting.
Wildwood has different moods, depending on Spring/Fall and whether we arrive before/after everything is closed. This time, it was Fall/after closing. Sun, wind and 70 degrees greeted us, along with Shelley and the crew at the Ocean Holiday.
 -

There is a certain "Carnival of Souls" quality to the boardwalk after the season :-)

 -

That quiet, however, also underscores the feeling that we are truly there "on a mission."
On a drive around town, we visited an "old friend", the historic Sea Theatre. Sadly, the place is not in great shape, after flooding and not being used. Several options were discussed, including crowd-funding to help the theatre. If anyone has ideas, please post them here; it's a worthy cause for cinema history.

 -

 -

Meanwhile, back at the hotel, the room was waiting. It was time to get to work setting up:

 -

------------------------

That's for starters; more to come.

Claus,

This was one of the most enjoyable shows ever for me. I can't wait to relive it through your photos.

Excellent Carnival of Souls reference!

Doug

I think there's room for just one more film.....

Come Friday, the work began. Doug had gotten black tablecloths from EBay, which worked well as window covers:

 -

We're trying to do serious work, but someone always has to clown around! (Well, since the 20th was Bela Lugosi's birthday, Gary is excused...):

 -

Time to introduce a member of the "CineSea Long-distance Club": Mr. Jason Smith (with Jack Cleveland and Gary C.) originally from Texas, now living in Japan, had been to the last show. He liked the experience so much that he flew in just to be here again!
(Those are not lollipops they are holding; they are the elastic fasteners for the big screen....)

 -

Up it goes; by now we put the screen in place from the start to make things easier when switching to the evening's feature screening:

 -

Lou Franchetti and Lou, Jr. arrived to get their tables prepared:

 -

The early bird gets the film, right?...no early bird beats Gary Sloan, here inspecting Gary Crawford's offerings [Big Grin]

 -

Gotta advertize: here's the official banner of CineSea, to be hung for the duration. The gent on the right is Evan Samaras from N.Y. who collects and does photography:

Guy, it was great to see you again.Also, Gary Crawford stole the show with his antics and as Groucho. I had the greatest time, and everyone else did, too. it is a great bunch of people, and dinner at Alfe's was awesome. Cannot wait for the Spring edition! Bravo.....Ten Stars rating.

For the big screen, we had, as per usual, Doug Meltzer's Elmo GS-1200 Xenon and, for 16mm, Gary's Bell and Howell Xenons. Gary is chatting with CS regular Todd Tuckey (who brought his wife and daughter as well):

 -

More familiar faces gradually appeared.
Shorty Caruso with Laurie and Doug:

 -

Guy and Geoffrey were, as always, a welcome sight:

 -

It was time for the Friday Night Feature:

 -

By vote on the forum, "Aliens" had been selected, provided in a nice low-fade 16mm print by Lou Franchetti. With sound going through a mixer into a pair of powered JBL PA speakers, no one missed any nuances of the soundtrack!:

 -

 -

Our inflatable mascot, the "AiryFlex", had place of pride along with one of many cups of coffee consumed that week-end:

 -

---------------------------------

More to come.....

Claus.

With things well underway, there was plenty to look at.
Doug Meltzer's tables were filled with both film and his "museum", but this time, the exhibits were also for sale:

 -

The 'GS-1200'of editing viewers, the big Goko. Mixing capabilities built in...one lusted after that one in the magazine ads :-)

 -

Say hello to our Chief Engineer (well, why not..) and his son, Steve Klare and Steve, Jr. This gentleman is getting away with having his Super-8 projector ON HIS DINING TABLE SEMI-PERMANENTLY!!!!! Obviously, there are some things the rest of us married folk haven't figured out yet :-)

 -

Gary Crawford goes "digging in the crates":

 -

...as does Steve Jr. who always brings his 200-footers and his trusty Yelco silent projector and sets up in a corner. Looks like he's found new titles:

 -

Joe Vannicola was back with his 16mm setup:

 -

...and on the screens, beautiful images lit up the room:

 -

Great photos once again Claus and nice to see the superb 8008 up for grabs there. A brilliant editor for Super 8mm film.

Very nice PA system used there also for the Aliens feature.
I can see it looked superb but I'd also imagine the sound was on an equal par with that set up!😊😊

In all fairness, it's really not "projector" but usually "two", and a mixer, and during the holidays even more!

-my wife would shrug...maybe say "Keeps him off the streets!".

She has a great time at CineSea herself: I'm sure it helps ease the pain!

They are the very best Super 8mm editor money can buy Graham. [Smile]

Just don't expect synchronized recordings from them though, over lengthy runs of film.

Joe "Shorty" Caruso, friend of John Black (who started all this) had a nice table with R-8/S-8 shorts and historical memorabilia:

 -

Read this box carefully. Shorty was trying to pull our collective legs with a "rare reel of behind-the-scenes footage" (well, it would be nice if it existed...)

 -

Some beautiful boxes on Joe's table. I believe some of these may be pre-made titles one could buy to insert in one's home movies:

 -

John "Mr. Espresso" Capazzo was back, with projectors, films, coffee and donuts (nice Chinon, BTW.)

 -

 -

Gary C. had brought a lovely 16mm print of "The Lodger" with Laird Cregar, real "film noir":

 -

...and over by the Franchettis' station, 16mm rolled all day:

 -

--------------------------------------

A few more to come...

Claus.

A big hug and 'thank you' to Simone, who has been our guardian angel when it comes to arranging Saturday night dinner reservations for this hungry horde. This time she outdid herself; pics further down.

 -

Dave Ruth and his sister came and browsed, and they wound up with a complete S-8 feature from Guy Taylor in addition to the horror extract seen on top.

 -

Meanwhile, in the "heavier" end of the room, 35mm was being examined:

 -

Joe Griesbach is our go-to for bigger vintage gear, and he brought this beautiful console-style RCA 16mm unit. Audio amp in the base, machine on top....a smart combo that looked and sounded great:

 -

Here's what made this special: Joe had replaced the carbon rod assembly with an LED lamp! It ran cool and easy, with not even the heat filter being necessary if you felt like removing it.
With further tweaks, he hopes to put a stronger LED into the machine. Truly the best of old and new, for easier projection:

 -

Our travelling friend Jason brought Elmo gear with him to sell, including a batch of lenses. The 'little guy' that's number three in the row is the legendary 1.0 Elmo Zoom:

 -

Also, the original Elmo swing-out scope-lens mount. First time I have seen one of those...

 -

There was plenty of interest all around. Here's Gerald Boss, Guy Taylor and David Boland browsing:

 -

-------------------------------------

I'll wrap it up next time....

Dave,

Thank you so much for coming. Hopefully next time you both can join us for the group dinner.

Clyde,
Mr. Tuckey is editing his video as we speak!
