Don't think so, but I think you're right - there are multiple shots of the Cannes projection booth (or a stand-in for it). Can you grab us some screen shots?

Saw a episode of Columbo from 1974 titled: An Exercise In Fatality.

 -

As an alibi the murderer arranged a film show of a "X-rated horror movie, uncut" in his home.

 -

The funny thing is that he started the screening with the film in the position you can see in the picture, some 20 minutes in. I would have complained if I had been there, but everybody seemed quite happy with this.

 -

What brand of projector is this?
I don't recognise it.

Have seen two more Columbo episodes with projectors in them.

"Forgotten Lady"
 -

The murderer, Janet Leigh, are watching one of her old movies as a alibi for the murder of her husband, Sam Jaffe.
 -

 -

Unfortunately the film breaks and Columbo, sharp as ever, notices that the film was 14 minutes longer than usual on the night of the murder.
 -

 -

The second episode was "A Matter of Honor"
 -

At the very beginning the would-be murderer, Ricardo Montalban, a retired bull-fighter, is watching some old films of his exploits in the bull-ring.
 -

 -

Looks like an old Ampro to me.

Will continue to watch these old episodes to see if there are more of them with projectors.

I don't know if "Dr Terror's House of Horrors" has been mentioned
but there was one in there when Jeremy Kemp was giving his
lecture on plants.Going by the limited views of it ,it looks like
the old standby, a Bell & Howell 636 16mm.

I hope it doesn't make us afraid of our projectors.

Saw Sinister yestrerday. It was a really good movie. The projector and film was a very large part of the story. It was realy cool. I think I spent more time watching the projector than I did the actors.

Here's another from the TV series Ellery Queen with Jim Hutton. This one had Walter Pidgeon in it. The title 'Disappering Dagger' it looks like a 16mm projector.

Another Ellery Queen: Don't Look Behind You, this starred Peter Lawford. The pre-credits are in cinema projection booth so 35mm.

These are on my PVR I'll try to do screen shots of them.

I love the smell of film in the morning.

Remember the Woody Woodpecker TV show? Walter Lantz's office "set" included a Bell & Howell 399AV, which he would sometimes run, or would sometimes ask Woody to run it with about the results you might expect. Ha-ha-ha-HAAA-ha! [Big Grin]

Looks like you could see a lot of cameras, splicers, editors, projectors, blood and dead people in this film:

Nice ones Jim....I'm going to guess Robbie's projector is a Kodak Instamatic M80. The other...yes maybe an Ampro...but could be a Revere or Keystone too.

Here's a projector in an episode of The Rockford Files S5E11 The projected image was fake...and the projector looks to me more like a prop than a real 16mm projector...however the reels did turn?

also noticed in the bottom VOYAGE scene the projector has it's mains cord removed, and in the top it is pluged in!

the projector in the ROCKFORD shot looks like a Kodascope to me.

Has anyone mentioned The Spiral Staircase? I watched a Super 8 print the other day and one scene takes place in an early movie house with a gentleman hand cranking one of those old flickers..
