I don't think we have this one. It's from the pilot of How I Met Your Mother. I wasn't enjoying the episode until I saw this projector. I promptly left the pilot unfinished and turned to this thread. This projector doesn't look like anything I've seen. The reels look 8mm, to my amateur eye, and the film even appears threaded. Maybe the bulb blew in the middle of a screening and the projector was forgotten.

It's an Ampro Stylist, a 16mm projector (although to be fair I can see why you might have thought 8mm, the screengrab does make them look a little flat. Maybe I should stop trying to lose weight and try and become a TV star instead! [Smile] )

If you look very carefully...you can make out a projector in the smoky image from the opening credits of The Illusionist (2006).

'Bachelor Party' was always a favourite of mine during my crass youth and Janice's post shows a quite full reel so it came as a bit of a surprise to the boys to find that the girlfriends had cut the middle out of the film so there were no rude bits and the film bizarrely ran for about a minute!

In this scene from The Cider House Rules (1999) Michael Caine and Tobey McGuire have to repair the film after it breaks during a showing of King Kong. Is that an Ampro?

Janice, I don't really know you but let me play Charlie Chan a bit here. You indulge in three activities extensively:

1. repair projectors (evident on many threads),
2. spot them in films (this thread), and
3. laugh (your profile pic).

Well Charlie...whoops! I mean Akshay [Smile] pretty close. I think I would put laugh at the top of the list though and for clarification, I only TRY to repair projectors [Big Grin] Don't leave out dabbling in telecine and posting relatively boring videos on YouTube...although my "Oven Roasted Potatoes and Carrots" vid has over 1400 hits [Cool] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewxjf5aARGk&list=UUzhVuBJou11ziWdERi0ZGuQ&index=2 3&feature=plcp and my "Rolling Title Track Matte Tutorial" over 3500 hits http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCUfCRDTENs&list=UUzhVuBJou11ziWdERi0ZGuQ&index=3 1&feature=plcp [Cool]

In The Player (1992) Tim Robbins meets up with Vincent D'Onoforio (Law and Order: Criminal Intent) in a movie theater just before Vincent's character meets an untimely death.

Here is an index of most everything discussed or pictured so far in this thread, giving the page number of this thread for each title. Wish it could be post number 1! But then that would throw off the index! Sorry, can't keep the tabbing in the post here, so the page numbers are spaced just after the title listing.

Maybe it's a rear-projection so that the projector is hidden behind the screen?

Hugo (2011) was my favorite movie from last year. I saw it originally in 3D and the experience was great, but I have to say it holds up just as well in 2D. I hope this becomes a "classic." [Smile] [Smile] [Smile]

I just watched the season 4 episode of THE FLINTSTONES called "Reel Trouble"

It's great...it is me all the way! Fred trades in his snapshot camera for a movie camera and films everything.....and bores everyone with his home movie shows! Lot's of shots of Fred with his stone-age projector.....

And don't forget that the recent 2011 "The Muppets" movie begins with a faux home movie, with flicker, dust, scratches, and edge fall-off like it's on a screen. But no projector is shown, shame on them in such a nostalgic movie!
