Pat,

Terrific! In that case, you'll need to know that CineSea 17 will take place on the weekend of April 27th, 2018!

Pat,

If you talk Graham Ritchie into coming with you, I'll buy you both a beer!

Saturday dinner, and then I'll do a wrap with the next installment.

"An army travels on its stomach"... and so do film collectors. The Saturday dinner has been a week-end highlight every show as we have sampled our way through different places, usually with excellent results.
This time the destination was the Two Mile Landing Restaurant and Crab House:

 -

We had a bit of a traffic jam when we arrived 30 strong; people were getting hungry...

 -

...but once seated, things settled down and a good dinner was had by everyone:

 -

 -

...due to the size of the group, we had to spread out at a couple of extra tables, but hey, we're flexible (settle down, Gerald, no need for the zombie act; there's plenty of food...)

 -

 -

Dinner. A time to share deep thoughts...

 -

The Tuckeys had brought a commemorative cake again; a tasty reminder of how many shows we have already done. The cake would make its way back to the Saturday night film fest after dinner.

 -

Nest time, the Saturday screenings and a wrap.

Well, back at the "ranch" it was time for the Saturday medley of films. Whereas Friday is more of a set feature-type program with trailers and such, Saturday is "pot luck": bring and show until the wee hours (how 'wee' they get depends entirely on how many films are offered up.)

You gotta have snacks when you run films. Giant bags of popcorn and other goodies were on offer:

 -

...along with these little Halloween treats:

 -

Classic cartoons are always welcome, so we had a nice Technicolor "Woody Woodpecker":

 -

Great prints were run, including this Disney film, the name of which escapes me right now (Doug can help with this one):

 -

The classic "Luxo, Jr.", John Lasseter's pioneering digital animation film, here in a superb film print:

 -

Horror, anyone? The cult classic "The Flesh Eaters" showed up in all its ragged glory. Great fun:

 -

 -

...and also a genre we don't see that often, but which is dear to many collectors: the railroad film. Steve Klare had brought a fine Super-8 print of a mountain rail journey for our enjoyment:

 -

That is about the last chapter; I'll have the group shot and a few closing images for the end.

Thanks for the compliment, Claus, but The Complete Silverton is Super-8 sound.

When I was in high school, I bought a silent print of this film on the theory that mere mortals like me never owned sound projectors. About 20 years later I actually got sound and I'd been kicking myself ever since!

Then one day last year (or so) I saw a sound print on E-bay for about 10 bucks and "buy it now".

I thought "It can't be that easy!", -but...

Thanks for the correction, Steve; funny how one remembers these things sometimes. Duly edited.

Well,

I'm sure Doug's Xenon GS deserves a lot of the credit!

I have kind of an agreement with Doug that I'll bring and he'll show one railroad print per CineSea. I try to limit them to films that anybody who enjoys film will enjoy. (A lot of the most historically significant ones are pretty awful looking film, and sound is the exception rather than the rule!)

Another CineSea ended. If a week-end can feel both relaxing and packed at the same time, "CS" does that. The days take on their own rhythm, depending on who you are and when you arrive, and the show becomes "yours" in a way that a bigger, more structured event can't.

I leave you with a few random pictures from the week-end, pictures that show the easy cameraderie and warmth of our gathering.

 -

 -

 -

BTW, It's little-known that Doug Meltzer is a magician...at the end of each show, he performs this trick. He makes all of the stuff on the ground...

 -

...fit into his SUV...impressive, really.

 -

And so we have another group shot for the CineSea history book, and we start looking forward to April 2018, and to meeting both everyone we know, and anyone who might be tempted to come enjoy the magic of this special week-end.

 -

As always, thank you for looking and reading.

Claus.

Looks like you all had a good time.... no wonder Doug can fit so many films in his infamous Closet-o-Film! [Smile]

Excellent, Claus!

To me a CineSea isn't complete until this thread comes out.

Thanks! (Just as always!)

-on to #17! (or maybe "XVII")

Great job Claus! Great line up of the projectors!

Just a few of my own shots (mostly of surrounding area), shot on expired Kodak Porta 800 through Fujica GS645W

Excellent, Evan.
I like the mood that that film and lens combo gives; it must look great in full resolution.
