In the beautiful Wim Wenders film "Paris, Texas", the family memories are shown on a Super-8 machine (brand unknown.)
Dean Stockwell sits next to the backside of it, and when the film runs out, he does some sort of pantomime as if turning a knob on the back (!) of the projector....Hollywood..

Just remembered another one....a key scene in that wonderful Hammer film, The Quatermass Experiment (Creeping Unknown in the U.S.) Quatermass and others watch a film of what happened to the ill fated crew of the Q-1, the first space ship Quatermass sends into space. You get to see part of the film lab where the film is processed...only about a hundred foot reel of 16mm. Don't know what projector it was.

There is also a projector in one of the recent Swedish Wallander films. It's a Eumig, not shure witch model. Wallander is sitting at a desk running the projector at the wall some 2 meters away, and the picture fills the wall from flor to ceiling. Ah, the wonders of makebelief in movies.

In a episode of the Austrian tv series "Kommissar Rex" one of the caracters are watching a film on a GS1200. It's almost ten years since I saw this, but I remember he watched the film frame by frame, so I guess it must be a Elmo, unless there is another projector with this capacity.

I just remembered that in one of the Spencer Tracy/Katharine Hepburn films, I don't recall the title right now, they are looking at some home movies on 16MM.

And in 1993-94 they made six movies here in Sweden based on the novels by Maj Sjöwall/Per Wahlöö about the policeman Martin Beck. In the first of these, Roseanna, they are watching footage of a murder victim on a Elmo (atleast I think it was an Elmo, it's around 12-13 years since I saw these films). And in the following five films you can se the projector sitting on top of a bookshelf in Martin Becks office.

A forgotten movie from the 80's, "The Boy Who Could Fly". The family watches home movies on an ELMO, if I remember correctly. In fact, thats the ONLY thing I remember about that whole movie!

A more recent movie is "Butterfly Effect". In the last scene, Ashton K. uses a projector and home movies to "transport" him back in time.

Just caught a bit of "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice". There's a B&H 16mm projector in the living room, with a film threaded up.

Almost forgot this one.....in the great 1936 or so William Powell/Jean Arthur mystery, The EX MRS. BRADFORD, Powell has cameras placed at various points of a race track...and later in his apartment , he screens the edited film ...35mm...from a booth ..with a screen that comes down on the opposite wall... The film helps him tag the killer. His movie set up is really nice.

In the movie "College Confidential" (Universal, 1960) Steve Allen (as a college professor) uses a 16mm Bolex S221 optical/magnetic projector to show a film. This projector was made in 1960 and was a new model then. The film was made the same year Bolex introduced this model. I used one of these units for about three years for a film society. The projector was built like a tank. Best of it's kind.

Also in the 1972 ABC "made for television" movie "That Certain Summer" Hal Holbrook uses a Kodak Super 8mm Instamatic movie projector to watch childhood movies of his son who was actor Scott Jacoby in the film.

In The Abominable Dr. Phibes, Terry-Thomas can be found operating a hand cranked projector to screen a risque 16mm film.

That film got Terry's blood flowing only for the good doctor to come along and drain every last drop!
