Cinema Paradiso (1988) is a Oscar winning Italian film that is a must-see for any film enthusiast. This movie is entirely centered around movies and there are images of projectors and screenings throughout. It's a wonderful story.

Thanks Janice! I knew you would come through with great screen shots! I'm glad you put them up there because that projector is great.

It's always fun to see vintage film equipment show up in an animated feature. In A Monster in Paris (2011) the timeline is 1910...however, the animation...the dialogue...and the songs are very contemporary. The English version I have features the voices of Bob Balaban, Catherine O'Hara...and songs by Sean Lennon.

Hercules Returns (1993) is a very funny Australian film. Three friends buy an old Cinema and for the opening they decide to show the last film that ran in the old theater before it closed...Hercules. Just minutes before the film is to start they find out that the film is in Italian with no subtitles. So the three dub the entire movie themselves...It's hysterical [Smile] [Smile]

Union Station (1950) ) is a film-noir crime drama starring William Holden and Barry Fitzgerald. A blind girl gets kidnapped and the detectives watch home movies of the girl to help in the investigation. The projector looks like a 16mm to me....What do you think?

Patrick...here are the screen caps for that movie. It was Clash by Night (1952) and there were lot's of stars in it...Barbara Stanwyck, Robert Ryan, Paul Douglas (He's the guy who attacks Robert Ryan in the projection booth), and Mariyln Monroe.

In Everything Must Go, Will Ferrell watches a home movie on a Bell & Howell projector. I couldn't take pics, sorry. [Frown]

Another one is Peeping Tom in which there is film everywhere!

In "Monty Python's The Meaning of Life", Graham Chapman's sergeant stops a World War One film on 16mm and then delivers a lecture to a rather small audience before being struck by the hand of God. It's difficult to see what projector was used at the back.

Here are some screen shots from the movie Everything Must Go (2010) that Akshay posted a few days ago. At first I thought the projector was a Canon PS1000, but from the side I'm not sure.

Here's an even trickier one. In the court scene from "After the Fox", a 35mm projector is wheeled in to prove that Peter Sellers' character was the gold thief and not a film maker by any standards. It was difficult to get a decent shot of it.... but any ideas?

In The Artist (2011) George Valentin played by Oscar winning Jean Dujardin watches his own silent films on a 35mm projector and out of frustration pushes the projector to the floor.

In Tennessee Williams' "The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone" (1961) with Vivien Leigh and Warren Beatty there is a scene near the end where 16mm home movies are being shown.

The same scene is in the 2003 remake with Helen Mirren.

It can be seen at the 47:48 mark in this video.

I really liked Will Farrell in this very understated role in Stranger Than Fiction (2006)...also starring Emma Thompson, Dustin Hoffman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Queen Latifah. The clips are from a very brief segment when Will Farrell's character breaks away from his compulsive repetitive behaviors and begins to enjoy living his life. No projector shown...but you know there had to be one [Smile]

It's been a while since I posted in this thread. I don't know how I missed this one...but Nick Nolte takes his psychiatrist Barbra Streisand to the movies - his old home movies that is - in The Prince of Tides (1991). Looks like another B&H.

I was a big fan of the TV show Arrested Development. I was re-watching some episodes and found this very short projector reference. This was from the third season - episode six where Maybe makes a Christmas terror movie [Cool]
