As Mike said in another thread, all the pictures of peoples screening rooms are all within various other threads.

Lets get them all in one place.

Please post all you pictures of screening rooms into this thread to make it easier for people to find them.

Who is going to start us off?

Thanks, Kev.

Kevin

Many thanks for setting up this thread, and thanks Paul and Jan for being the first to post your screening room pictures here, Paul I like the additional shot of the "movie display cabinet" that's a nice touch.

It'd be great to see more screening rooms on this thread now as it is really putting me in the mood to get mine underway!

set-up.

Hi Kev
Great idea not sure how to move photos from place to another without mucking things up. Kev you are more than welcome to alter, edit anything I have submitted and add it to this topic oh how did you get on with Cinema Paradiso!.

Graham,

I believe moving pictures from an existing thread is very easy indeed. Find the original picture and rightclick on it, then select "Copy Image Location" from the context menu (this applies to Windows XP, by the way). Then, just paste the link you copied into your new post, making sure to enclose it within 'IMG' tags. Voila, you just re-posted an existing picture! (As the image link is the same, there is no second copy of the picture so no server space is wasted.) [Smile]

I like to put movie related art around my screening room, it really adds to the atmosphere and gets the audience in the mood to watch a great classic movie. Here are a few of the art pictures that I have placed on my room walls:

I found this great movie collage in an art shop a couple of weeks ago:

 -

This one is called appropriately 'Play it Again' and shows Bogey and a host of stars in Ricks Cafe. I have this located on the wall where the screen rolls down- it is the perfect picture for that location.

 -

and this great old Pathescope ad is a great complement to my projector display case:

Paul,

Cool posters! [Smile]
The montage and
Play It Again are
terrific.

Graham,

Impressive set-up,
and great atmosphere too. [Smile]
Although I like Jar-Jar,
I could see myself forgetting
that he is standing nearby,
and I might mistake him for
an intruder standing in
the dark. [Big Grin]

By the way, how is the lens
mounted on the GS, and what
type of lens is it?

Michael

I reckon I have the tiniest theatre,a two-seater! I like to be surrounded by shelves of film and old toy projectors.

Ever yearned for a pocketsized projector?Well
here are a couple from 1926,the Micro-Cine and the PPC. They were both
made by Kern of Switzerland.The British Presenta Pocket Cine is
beautiful walnut coloured bakelite. All working parts are brass.Both are
9.5mm and they accomodate a Pathe 30ft cassette. Handcranked,with 6volt
bulbs they show a very acceptable 18 inch wide picture! .Closed,their
dimensions are similar to a pack of cards. The D size battery is for
size comparison only

Hi Trev,
Your projector collection is awesome! What is that double-eyed contraption in the bottom left corner of the bottom picture?

All the best,
Paul

Trev,
Cool stuff.
By any chance, would
you happen to have
the home version of
the vitaphone sound
on disc projector?
It is the same as the
projectors used in theatres of
the early sound era, but only
for home use.

Trev,

WOW!!! [Eek!] [Eek!] That is unbelievable - it's not a screening room, it's a LIVING MUSEUM! I hope you're teaching your family members and/or friends to take good care of this stuff in case the time ever comes where you can't. [Smile] It is simply stunning, I could spend hours locked inside that room just gazing at every single thing.

And the projection screen, framed by all these memorabilia, I love it. [Smile] Only thing I can't help wondering is, do you project any scope films and if you do, how large does the image get? I don't see it being much taller than one foot in height [Wink]

If you look closely you will see that Trev has among his incredible collection the extremely rare Pathescope Monaco projector which uses horizontally projected 4.75mm film - that's right 4.75mm!!(you can see the box in the bottom picture)
I think we should organize a Forum group tour to visit Trev's house in NZ. [Big Grin]

Paul,
That's a neat thought,
however I would like
to know about the projector
with the Mickey Mouse label?
It seems that it has a vitaphone
Stylus connected to the megaphone
and the projector lens is underneath
and off to the side.

Good morning chaps!It is sunny but cool here in Auckland!
Paul,the projector you refer to is an Uncle Sam Durotone toy from the 1930s.The two-phase animation film strip(actually rather translucent paper)moves horizontally as you crank the machine.The upper and lower images project alternately and overlap-so a primitive form of animation is achieved.Also,a shutter obscures the image from the upper then lower lens alternatively, to smooth the picture change. It works ok!The coupled record player must be the lowest fidelity gadget ever devised!!The "talkie" films were sold with a record. You would have been a lucky kid to get one of these I reckon.
I don't have a Vitaphone Michael,sorry.The Mickey Mouse Talkie-Jecktor came out in 1935. It is a rather grand affair.It is clockwork and works in a similar fashion to the Uncle Sam...however,sound is quite a bit better and lap dissolve shutters yeild quite a good movie picture.Not having to crank is a real bonus. THe MM is a rather substantial item.Amazingly it sold for $1.98 in 1935!
Jan,sorry to say no one is interested in my "addiction".I can see it all going out on the side of the road some day!!Suppose I could offer it to a museum??But NOT YET! [Smile]
P.S.For a good look at toy projectors from everywhere put "Mettavantproject"into Google. Also,for cine everything(!) type in, "cinematographica" for a site you will revisit many times!
