I know it's better with pictures but sadly I haven't. A projector appears twice in the film : "The Blackkklansman".

I'm a big fan of the original Star Trek series. Don't know how I missed the projector (Movieola) in this first season episode before now [Smile] .

I remember this one:

Kirk and Co. has a little unintended time travel and winds up in the skies of 1960s Earth. They have an encounter with a US Air Force fighter and wind up beaming the pilot aboard after they destroy his plane. They also beam into an Air Force film lab to eliminate photographic evidence of the Enterprise's presence. Eventually they realize keeping the pilot will disrupt history and have to figure our a way to let him go. (More time travel!)

Title: "Tomorrow Is Yesterday"

Spock says "Poor photography..." (Everyone's a critic!)

Thanks Steve. In keeping with the thread about VHS tapes I have the original series complete on VHS so I'm going to pull this one out and watch it. I do have one original Star Trek episode on 16mm but I can't remember the name of it. I may watch that one too [Smile]

Edit- Dagger of the Mind is the 16mm episode I have.

I wanted to post this earlier but can no longer find a 'free' clip, but....
in the animated 'Tales from the far side' from Gary Larson, there is a segment where a dog watches a home movie of his dog wife who, he is filming her showing off playing around a bear trap, which ends with her getting her tail caught in the trap and captured by the hunter'...you have to understand 'far side' humour.
Anyways, it is a fantastic super 8 clip that lasts almost 2 or 3 minutes...I'll try to post it if i find the clip...

Here is a screengrab:
screengrab of far side super 8 machine

Also,

There is another scene where the 'bugs' are watching an in-flight movie...super 8...of a popular horror film. Can you guess the film? watch from 1:24 - 2:35 hilarious!!
more super 8- in flight movie

This is from a 1992 Simpsons episode titled "Bart the Lover". The class is watching a black and white educational film titled "A World Without Zinc". (-A real Eye Opener!)

(I can't tell what kind of projector it is... [Wink] )

I just saw that the film 1966 film Modesty Blaise has
a 16mm Bell and Howell 644 projector (or something like it)
in it .

The actress Monica Vitti turns it off. [Smile] [Smile] [Smile]

'Cinema of our time' produced by yours truly full of 35mm projectors and one 70mm showing Batman filmed 30 years ago. Proud that Derann distributed my efforts as well as good old Perrys.

Wow!

How is it possible that this thread has gotten this far without a mention of Lee's Cinema in Miniature?

-it is downright "projectorful"!

Many films have their moment on screen at CineSea, and we appreciate them all, but this is the only one I remember ever drawing applause.

(I guess it found its perfect audience...)

Currently in the UK there is a fascinating programme showing on TV called "Back In Time For School" in which a group of youngsters experience school life in various decades. In episode 3, the 1950's, a 16mm projector is introduced as an aid to teaching.
Unfortunately, I didn't get the make or get screen shots.

What I cannot understand is the way the film was loaded onto the machine. The full spool was loaded on the back and the take up spool on the front. I am trying to work out how the film would run through the mechanism as it would somehow need to loop back after the film gate to the take up spool without cutting in front of the projected picture. Can anybody enlighten me, please?

That's Great Jim...a good find! All that gear just to have sound movies. It's hard to imagine that people actually had the patience to setup something like that...then again Samantha was a witch...she probably just wiggled her nose [Smile] [Wink]

I also saw a Bolex 18-5 in last weeks Fox's not-so-Live presentation of the musical Rent. If you are familiar with Rent you'll know the character Mark is taking 8mm film through out the play. Towards the end when he is playing the developed film back you see his little Bolex sitting on the table.

We have to give credit where credit is due!

-If they'd just wheeled in a silent machine most people would never have known the difference!

Melvin, it may have been an early Kalart Victor projector. They had the take up reel in the front. Not uncommon for them to be used in schools. The were very kind to film.

Just been watching my Blu-ray set of Department S and found this (I think silent 16mm) in "The Pied Piper of Hambledon".
