The 19th CineSea Film Collectors gathering is just a month away and once again we'll be screening a film the night before. This will take place at 7:30 PM on Friday, April 26th at the Ocean Holiday Resort in Wildwood Crest, New Jersey. Admission is free.

Let's pick the film! If you're coming to the convention and have a print you'd like to show, Please list the title (up to two per collector) and format (Super 8mm or 16mm) here by 4/12. We'll then have an online survey and attendees can pick which title they prefer by 4/21.

Our previous winner was Gary Sloan's 16mm print of Psycho. The Friday Night Feature started with CineSea 11, and we've shown The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein, Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, Aliens, Beetlejuice, and House of Wax (3-D!).

My two offerings (I have previously nominated these) are Derann's Shane 1953 (Super 8mm, color, flat) and the Marketing print of Airplane! 1980 (Super 8mm, color, flat).

For more information about the CineSea Film Collectors Gathering, please look here.

I offer a gorgeous technicolor scope Elvis---his best one ROUSTABOUT with Barbara Stanwycke...I would love to run this as I want to post it for sale, but want my daughter to experience tech scope on this title
 
Posted by Stuart Finkelstein (Member # 2380) on March 23, 2019, 01:21 PM:
 
I volunteer A Hard Day's Night.

An Elvis-Beatles Double Feature would also be way cool!

Please list what format the film is on. Just naming the film doesn't help Where not mind readers
 
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on March 23, 2019, 07:58 PM:
 
Brian,

Yes, it is good to know. Would the format make a difference in your vote?

Doug

I’d like nominate my 16mm lowfade, scope print of Jaws once again. Also, I’d like to nominate my 35mm print of Jumanji. I figured I’ll switch it up this time and try two different gauges for a change. Can’t wait to see everyone in a few weeks. Really looking forward to the show as always!
 
Posted by Graham Ritchie (Member # 559) on March 23, 2019, 08:29 PM:
 
Wow what a line up of films [Eek!]

I know I cant vote but a Scope print of Jaws" [Cool] ..being near the sea that film would be just the thing [Wink]

Oh! and Airplane [Cool]

I Better go now [Wink] [Smile]

It's good that people are re-nominating great prints that didn't quite make it other times.

-sometimes it's a shame only one can win!
 
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on March 23, 2019, 09:43 PM:
 
Friday Night Triple Feature?

Both Roustabout (scope) and A Hard Day's Night (flat) are 16mm prints.

Posted by Geoffrey Curtis (Member # 5599) on March 24, 2019, 08:44 PM:
 
I might as well throw a title in the pile.

A 35MM print of Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones
 
Posted by Brian Stearns (Member # 3792) on March 24, 2019, 10:35 PM:
 
Why are we nominating 35mm films if the following was stated by Doug?

"Let's pick the film! If you're coming to the convention and have a print you'd like to show, Please list the title (up to two per collector) and format (Super 8mm or 16mm) here by 4/12."

35mm is nice but I feel too much of it was shown last year and time ran out so people that brought films didn't get an opportunity for theirs to be shown.
 
Posted by Steve Klare (Member # 12) on March 25, 2019, 09:13 AM:
 
He’s right Geoff!

Call it “Double 16” and we’ll let you do the other 3mm in the Fall!

(You’ve heard of “long movies”? This would be a “thin movie “.)
 
Posted by Greg May (Member # 6310) on March 25, 2019, 09:27 AM:
 
Tons of great stuff so far. Jenna and I won't be around until Saturday, due to a wedding. Looking forward to seeing everyone though! If I had to pick I'd have to go with Airplane!(Although I know my vote does not count haha)

Hope to see some 35mm stuff throughout the weekend regardless. There was really some stunning stuff in the Fall.
 
Posted by Louis Franchetti (Member # 2035) on March 25, 2019, 10:24 AM:
 
Hey Doug do you object to showing 35mm I don’t it’s still film
 
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on March 25, 2019, 06:50 PM:
 
I must apologize for the mistake in my posting. I was cutting and pasting from previous "Pick the Friday Night Feature" posts and neglected to include the larger format. Standard 8mm is also allowed, by the way.

Doug
 
Posted by Geoffrey Curtis (Member # 5599) on March 25, 2019, 06:57 PM:
 
In that case, my nomination still stands (along with these other GREAT movies).

Thank you Doug for clarifying.

Thanks doug
 
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on March 26, 2019, 07:57 AM:
 
We've had Standard 8mm, Super 8mm, 9.5mm, 16mm and 35mm, flat, scope and 3-D. Perhaps we can add Polyvision, Emergo, Percepto and Sensurround at some point. Please note: I deliberately left Odorama/Smell-O-Vision off that list.

There should disclaimer the projectionist will not be responsible for any scratches or damages incurred on other parties film during projection.

By the way folks, I have this idea from an old screen shot, as to how you can keep awake while you are watching all those films. That is to do what "My Bean" did, when driving his little mini to the Cannes film festival... [Big Grin]

Posted by Mark Silvester (Member # 929) on March 27, 2019, 04:59 AM:
 
Wow...I bet that Jaws looks fantastic in scope!

[Smile]

Ironically, I notice you mention Shane in 8mm - I actually acquired Derek Simmonds own personal and first copy of that print...its my favourite western of all time and a lovely print..!

By the way I obtained Derek's "Shane" that copy by swapping him a mint 16mm print - flat - of the Roger Moore, View to a Kill. LLP.

Back in the day when I had some amazing 16mm prints. Enjoy your convention and the enthusiasm you guys all reflect in your posts and conversations is a real joy to read. [Big Grin] Mark
 
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on March 27, 2019, 08:21 AM:
 
Mark,

I agree. The Derann Shane is one of my favorite prints.


Brian,

Perhaps also that all films submitted should be cleaned and free of staples so that the projectors aren't damaged....
It's been known to happen!

Doug
 
Posted by Steve Klare (Member # 12) on March 27, 2019, 08:33 AM:
 
I have handed over many of my favorite prints to Doug and his GS and I've never regretted it!

Although I probably don't have much chance against the GREAT films already put up for nomination , here is my puny attempt to unseat them -
1. - My BEAUTIFUL , GORGEOUS FOX print of JACK , THE GIANT KILLER
and
2. My BEAUTIFUL LOW-FADE print of GOKE , BODY SNATCHER FROM HELL , in SCOPE ,
re-recorded in English by the great Adam Deirling .

BOTH are SUPER 8MM PRINTS !!
Here are some screen shots , for your enjoyment

Staples on film? Please explain this to me, Doug. My Friday night nominations are:Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman, The Black Scorpion and Mad Love Staring Peter Lorre. Sea all of u in a couple of weeks.
 
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on March 28, 2019, 08:52 PM:
 
Tom & Joe,

Not at a convention....The collector I bought my Xenon GS from had his projector gate ruined by a film that had a "splice by stapler". He thought it might have been done as a quick fix during a screening and then forgotten.

Mr. Vannicola, you have a choice to make! Please narrow down your three submissions to two films (please keep Black Scorpion in the running....I've never seen it!)

Doug
 
Posted by Brian Stearns (Member # 3792) on March 28, 2019, 09:07 PM:
 
If someone nominates only one film or no film then why is it an issue if someone else nominates three. I say more films in the pile the better. Things even out
 
Posted by Louis Franchetti (Member # 2035) on March 29, 2019, 03:22 AM:
 
Because you have to follow some kind of rules

Sorry Joe only trying to help you out

I’ll go Jaws. It’s by the water, it’s the jersey beach (a la the novels inspiration) and it’s my favorite movie
 
Posted by Joe Vannicola (Member # 4156) on March 30, 2019, 08:45 AM:
 
Sorry guys. In my zeal, I accidentally nominated three films instead of two. Oops. Anyhoo, my nominations are The Black Scorpion and Mad Love. Thank you, Brian, I appreciate your help in this matter. By the way, Doug; I think I now know why people staple 8mm film. That's almost as bad as the time I was going to buy a 16mm cartoon reel and noticed the guy had used a band aid for one of the splices. Needless to say I lost interest very quickly.
 
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on March 30, 2019, 12:21 PM:
 
Joe,

Thank you for keeping Black Scorpion in the running.

Brian's point is well taken, however I've found that too many films can spread the vote out and necessitate the need for a runoff. Not a bad thing, just more time is needed. We could still have a runoff if there is a tie between the top vote getters.

I'd like to add my print of the 1977 Black Sunday with Robert Shaw to the list. Super 8, Marketing Film International, Flat.
 
Posted by David C. Lucidi (Member # 4020) on April 02, 2019, 10:52 AM:
 
Can't wait to see you all in just a few short weeks!

My 2 offerings are as follows:

War Games (1983, LPP): Classic Matthew Broderick movie (93% Rotten Tomatoes!)

It Happens Every Spring (B/W, 1949): One of the funniest, (if not the funniest) baseball comedies (100% on Rotten Tomatoes!). Perfect since Baseball season is just starting.

Both choices are in 16mm and both are family friendly for all ages. [Big Grin]
 
Posted by Brian Stearns (Member # 3792) on April 03, 2019, 01:49 AM:
 
Thank you Doug for taking the time to explain to me the reasoning behind not allowing more than two films per person. Im new to Cinesea so I would not know

Oh man! I may have to change my absentee ballet to Wargames. That is a classic Dave. Definitely bummed I'll be missing Friday night.

Sorry to hear you'll miss Friday night Greg, but at least a wedding can be fun too! Looking forward to seeing you and Jenna on Saturday tho!

And Shorty.....of course! And how appropriate if War Games is chosen, that we should play chess!

(A key line in the movie is "Wouldn't you prefer a nice game of chess?")

[Big Grin]
 
Posted by Steve Klare (Member # 12) on April 03, 2019, 02:01 PM:
 
NOBODY mention the "W" word around my wife!

-she watches those weddin' gown shows on cable all the time and if she knew there was a real wedding handy WE might miss Friday Night Feature!

I think there should be a groom's counterpart to those shows: "Say 'whatever' to the Tux"! (If I didn't rent mine I'd have been changing oil in it 15 years ago!)

This sounds like about the most competitive ballot we've ever had.

-I predict a run-off!

Posted by Gary Sloan (Member # 4482) on April 04, 2019, 03:36 PM:
 
Ok all, here's my nominees.

16mm Raiders Of The Lost Ark Scope 1981 LPP uncut gorgeous!

16mm E.T 1982 another uncut letterbox LPP

Bothe are perfect films for the whole family and film fanatics.

Anyone remember that scene towards the end of Maverick (Mel Gibson, 1994), when the Commodore (played by James Coburn)
thinks he has the winning hand, and lights a victory cigar? Only to have Alfred Molina's character show a better hand seconds later?

 -

That's kinda what I felt like with the excitement of my suggestion of War Games.....until Gary pulled out Raiders...in SCOPE! [Razz] (To be fair, there were plenty of previous selections that were equal/better candidates than War Games (in my own humble opinion). Personally, I'm drooling at the thought of Raiders in Scope. All the choices so far have been great, but Raiders is one of my all time favorites.

Thought for Doug, Shorty and Lou (and anyone else heading up the CineSea event), was there ever the thought of a 'double feature'? If we started at 7, we could be done by 11:30 with a small intermission between titles (assuming each film is approx. 2 hours). Heck the drive-ins do it, why not CineSea? [Wink]

Something to think about? Maybe not for this CineSea, but future ones? Or should this idea be taken out to the barn ala a rabid Old Yeller [Razz]

One thing is for certain....there's no shortage of awesome selections at every CineSea!!! [Cool] [Smile]

...and on that day the Thursday night feature was born!

(-and the people rejoiced!) [Wink]
 
Posted by Dave Ruth (Member # 4596) on April 05, 2019, 06:51 AM:
 
Last year’s Friday night feature took nearly three hours to screen and it was a 90 minute movie.
 
Posted by David C. Lucidi (Member # 4020) on April 05, 2019, 08:44 AM:
 
Steve: I like the way you think! (Although you and your family wouldn't be there on Thursday so you'd miss out somewhat [Frown] ) In reality, various film(s) are shown throughout Thursday day/night, if for no other reason than to 'dial in' projector distances and do sound setups.

Dave: are you referring to House of Wax 3D? (April 2018). That was a unique situation, due to the special 35mm setup involved. With that exception, I personally don't recall films running past 2 hours, but I have only been attending since April 2017.
 
Posted by Brian Stearns (Member # 3792) on April 06, 2019, 01:06 AM:
 
A good idea If you don't want to watch the voted movie then you can always have an alternate show in someones room. setting up projector,screen and speakers.
 
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on April 08, 2019, 09:26 PM:
 
We've got a great selection of films to choose from....and there's still a few more days to the cutoff date (4/12). If you want to share a favorite print, please let us know by Friday.

It pays to remember: this is maybe the third time that The King has been on the ballot and he's finally gotten his day on screen.

Especially if your print came close, please run it again. (Let's not bury our wounded!)

Posted by Steve Klare (Member # 12) on April 23, 2019, 11:30 AM:
 
Very True!

The bonus being you will never hear "Why do you bother with all this? Just get Netflix!"

It just bothers me that there are really spectacular sounding prints that should get their time on the big screen: even if not this time, maybe next time or next year.

Example:

My sister is a Nurse: she's worked in the ER (hunting mishaps, car accidents) and OR (amputations, appendectomies, infections, open thoraxes with hearts beating). I think it's fair to say she's not at all squeamish!

-and yet she came home from seeing JAWS in the theater visibly shaken! A couple of days later there was a beer commercial and these guys yanked a trout into a row boat: she literally screamed!

I've seen it any number of times on the small screen. To me it's a great adventure tale, but it didn't scare me at all.

I'm not pretending to be less prone to having the crap scared out of me than my sister, who was literally called "Blood and Guts" when she was undergrad at Hunter/Bellevue! I'm an Engineer: when something dies on us we just buy a new one!

That's why I want to see this movie Ten feet high some day!

-of course the element of surprise is kind of gone...

"-and there goes Quint!"

Sadly another CineSea I have to miss because of prior obligations to my other hobby this Saturday, which unlike film collecting pays for itself. Roustabout is also my favorite Elvis film, and if Todd is selling his print after this screening, let me know, I would be interested! I hope to make the CineSea in October and see everyone again unless it falls on the weekend of October 19th...

David if you took the time to notice I don't have a horse in the race.It was a joke asking for a recount.So I don't give a care who's second. I was only referring to the fact it's funny that a certain person pointed oyt there was a three way tie for second. Like it really matters being tied for first of the losers. What do you want a recount or booby prize?

That being said I can't wait to watch Elvis and hang out with my friends. also sing along with Elvis and with Tammy while the film is running

Well it does sound like fun

Let's all see if I can shake my belly like Elvis shakes his hips

Brian, I could've sworn that a three way tie for second would be of particular interest to you. Isn't that why you asked to see the actual vote count in the first place?

Nice to see A Hard Day's Night stayed in the running with Jaws & Raiders as it's one of my favorite films.

Im glad you posted the results your showing transparency.

Result count or not, I haven’t felt a lack of transparency in the selection of the Friday night choice, now or in the past

No not me or anyone else I spoke to on this matter either

I know im in the UK and ive nothing against Elvis - but to pick Roustabout - which is hardly the Kings finest celluloid hour over Raiders and Jaws is something of a mystery to me.

It's interesting; There were so many titles to chose from that the majority of voters were split! The majority did not choose Rostabout, but there were those dedicated voters that made it happen. Had the votes been conducted in a bracketed fashion I feel the outcome would be different. But who has time for that?!?!

I'm not complaining either way. The feature to me is a warm up for the festivities to come the very next day!

One way to look at it is with this many great prints in contention, Friday Night Feature has a long future ahead of it!

I made my vote regretting all the ones I voted against. (Until we take over the same space in the hotel next door, it will stay just one at a time. [Wink] )

-and I think the King will sound just great through those big speakers!

Looking forward to seeing everyone. I still haven’t picked what films I’m bringing to sell! Last time I had everything priced and categorized weeks out. Sigh. I’ll be skipping the Friday night feature, so what’s the skinny on breakfast? I have yet to attend.

Dave,

You have mail. Skinny mail.

I believe Roustabout has been the only consecutive film that has been nominated for four different CineSeas - and, in my opinion, it's about time it won! [Big Grin]

It's nice to change things up by playing a musical instead of another action film - and spring is the perfect time for any big musical!

See y'all real soon - and get ready Thursday night crew. We got some Werewolf (our murder mystery game) to play. [Cool]

What are you talking about Fright night house of wax and psycho star wars,Aliens are not action films. Plus when was the last cinesea an action film was shown? I've been keeping track and most of the time it's sci fi and horror. If I'm wrong please correct me.
 
Posted by Nicole Tucky (Member # 5587) on April 24, 2019, 08:41 PM:
 
According to Google, the definition of an action film is "...a film genre in which the protagonist or protagonists are thrust into a series of challenges that typically include violence, extended fighting, physical feats, and frantic chases."

I believe all of those films you just listen classify as an actio film.

It's a nice change of pace with an Elvis film that is a fun, feel good musical, which is exactly what we need for this Spring's CineSea!

See everyone there! [Wink]

Brian,

I believe you are taking her use of the word action too literal in a respect. My interpretation is that she is using it in a flexible manner to express the type of sequences. While they may not fall into the specific Genre of Action, they contain many more action like sequences than a musical. To think of it strictly in terms of the Genre Action may be too rigid of an interpretation.
 
Posted by Brian Stearns (Member # 3792) on April 24, 2019, 09:12 PM:
 
Your generalization of action films is wrong Tammy. Because imdb is better viable source then Google.ok is Paint your wagon a musical or western?

Is blues bros a musical or action?

You Google definition can apply to any movie including Rousabout or bambi. Every movie contains what you quoted.

Posted by Brian Stearns (Member # 3792) on April 24, 2019, 09:22 PM:
 
So I guess by taking Google's interpretation every movie is action. Which makes your original point about Roustabout being a musical not fully correct.

Aliens for sure is most definitely an action film with horror elements. If you were to take "Alien" and "Aliens" one is a survival horror film, the other is an action film against some frightening enemies.

Sorry we are missing Friday night. We will see everyone Saturday. I expect to get there around 3PM.
