I fully expect a film projector to make an appearance in movies like "Cinema Paridiso", "8mm" or "Goodbye, Dragon Inn", but I'm pleasantly surprised when one shows up out of the blue.

Here's one showing Bruce Lee what he's up against in "Enter the Dragon":

I'm not sure which 16mm model this is. Can someone please identify it and list another film with cameos by our favorite machines?

Not a projector, but a camera. Not a movie, but a TV show.

About two seasons ago I remember CSI New York had some unusual suspects doing some really freaky stuff and capturing the action with what looked to me to be a Krasnorsk Super-8 camera. What struck me it about was that it was set in modern times and nobody in the show thought it was a big deal that they weren't using video. I think we have a friend out there in TV Land.

More recently on Criminal Minds I remember seeing Mandy Patinkin's character watching Charlie Chaplin on 16mm in his office (your tax dollars at work…). One of the young guys walked in and said "Why don't you guys get a DVD?"

-I grabbed the remote and looked for a "smack" button, but none was in evidence!

Most of the time you see somebody working a projector on screen they are fighting it. There is film all over the place and usually it ends with the image stopping and melting on screen. I guess a couple of formats from now we’ll get to laugh at what happens when a DVD gets a scratch.

In the second season of "Lost", the characters use a 16 mm projector of unknown brand to watch an orientation film on 16 mm film. And of course there's 8mm/16mm projectors in "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" and "The Waterboy".

I'll see if I can get screengrabs from the three and post [Smile]

There is one (16mm) toward the end of David Lynch's "Lost Highway" and one at the beginning of "Absence Of Malice". I think that one is a 16mm Bell & Howell autoload.

Doug...pay close attention to the projector at the beginning of "Enter the Dragon" because if I remember right the spools are traveling opposite directions! That's not right [Smile]

"The Sixteen-Millimeter Shrine" from the Twilight Zone.
Ida Lupino as the aging actress watching her films alone:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRuRCAsqVOY

I can't ID the projector, but the boxed-in design suggests the JAN models (is 1959 the right time frame for those?) At about 4:11 you get a decent look at it.

Janet Leigh in a Columbo episode....watches her old movies on a 16mm...and in fact the broken film and all provides both the alibi for the murder she committed and the fatal clue to convict her. Also in the first Roland Winters Chan film, he has an old Ampro in his home crime lab. I have a still of him watching a film on that projector.

The John Cleese projector is a Bolex 18-5 probably std/regular 8 as the super 8 version was a different grey.

PS Michael Caine watches porn Movies in Get Carter.On an 8mm projector
The jury in "Performance" watch on 16mm.

Sunset Boulevard has 35mm

There is another Monty Python episode in 'The ministry of silly walks sketch" where John Cleese uses a Eumig projector then picks it up and throws it across the room (to off camera so hopefully the projector lived!)
There is an Ampro in "THE CIDER HOUSE RULES" also a B&H is in use in THE WORLDS FASTEST INDIAN.

In HOOPER they went back to Sonny's (Burt Reynolds) place after the big bar fight to watch old footage of "gags" they did in the past.

In Enter The Dragon (which Doug shows) Bruce Lee was shown 16mm footage of (I think) HAN who he was after. Note the reels turning in opposite directions and no film.

In Death Ship there was a DeVry projector on the Nazi ship!!! LOL

In an episode of C.S.I. they used a 16mm projector once that I recall. I think that was and Elmo AL since it shut off after the film ran out.

Hi,

in "8MM" (1999) and "JFK" (1991) unknown 8mm-projectors are shown and used.

In "Blast from the Past" (1999) the family Webber is watching "TV" in her bunker. However the source of the TV-image is a 16mm-film... I guess that it must be some Silvana-projector (or is it "Silvania"?).

There are also some Super8-amateur-films about some "Projektorenrennen" like this one [Wink]

In the back of mind I remember a scene from 'Bachelor Party', a film from when Tom Hanks wasn't a serious actor.
In one scene the lads watch a porno, however someone has mischeaviously cut out the 'best parts' leaving the film with the scenes where the guy meets two girls - which then cuts to all three lying in bed after the deed.
The stag party are baffled but not as much as the viewer as the film reel looks like a full 400ft but runs for about a minute.
I think the dialogue that follows from Mr Hanks is " I may be a bit of a traditionalist but I usually like my filth to be filthier than that!"

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.

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.

Way back when I was in my early teens Jim Hutton starred in the Ellery Queen TV mystery series. I remember one episode where the murderer was a projectionist and Ellery Queen busted his alibi because he'd accidentally let the feature he was showing run past a reel change while he was doing the deed. From this goof they were able to figure out he wasn't up in the booth during the murder.

Beyond the idea that crime doesn't pay I learned from this about the circular mark appearing on screen just before a reel change, and until I actually owned a feature on multiple reels of film about 30 years later I remembered it too.

It is set in circa 1910-20, ant the main caracter, among other professions, have a stint as, at first, a travelling showman with a handcranked projector, and later at a real cinema with a electrically driven projector, a point that is made a big fuzz about.
This is a really good movie and I can reccoment it, but bevare, find the original and NOT the US version. The latter is 110 minutes while the original is 169 minutes long.

In Apollo 13 there is a scene at the very end where Jim Lovell walks across the carrier deck and passes a Navy crewman with what I think is a Bell and Howell Super-8 camera.

-always torques me off because he's one-handing it! C'mon guy! It could be the most interesting footage you'll ever shoot: use both hands!

(Not a complete surprise: Ron Howard's first films were Super-8.)

What's even more interesting about that scene is when Jim Lovell as played by Tom Hanks shakes hands with the ship's Captain, as played by the real Jim Lovell. (-nice touch!)

I really like this thread for so many reasons - here are a list of some films I remember seeing either a projector or a screening room with an "invisible" projector.

- Play It Again Sam
 -

This is one of my favorite films, I have it on 16mm and he does have a projector all loaded up with a 1600' reel in his apartment. This is a shot of Allen with Bogey discussing women, next to his film collection. I bet there is an Igmar Bergman in there somewhere. The film begins with Allen watching Casablanca at a movie theater. Later he personally screens a film for Diane Keaton where we see another projector that he turns on and walks away from. (I would never do that - unless I had to go to the bathroom!)

Next is 'The Candidate' with Robert Redford - in a scene where they are watching political endorsements in an office - we see a Filmosound getting turned off - there is a big stack of films they are going through, looking for material to edit together. There is also a nice Moviola in the film that they use to do the editing for their own political endorsed ads.

I'll post a picture of that scene soon - I could not find one online.

- Raging Bull
 -

Another of my favorite films, Raging Bull has beautiful Kodachrome pictures shot by Martin Scorsese for a wedding montage. Above we see how there is an "imaginary" projector running this film - this may be symbolic of our mind!

We also get the same effect when we see the opening sequence to one of my favorite television shows - 'The Wonder Years'
 -

Just who is running this imaginary projector? It's always Dad, of course! However, some of my favorite scenes in movies are of the characters of the films actually going to the movies! These immediately come to my mind as most memorable (aside form the many Woody Allen films):

- Summer of '42
 -

In this coming of age film the kids go blind dates to see Bette Davis in 'Now, Voyager'. The scene begins in the lobby but, quickly they cut to the "imaginary" projector, panning over to the big screen. Something about a movie-within-a movie-makes the plot momentarily mystical.

- A Clockwork Orange
 -

Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining' features a clip from 'Summer of '42' while a television is on in the lobby of the hotel. A few years before that films release, we see this image of Malcom McDowell as 'Alex' "watching" a 16mm propaganda film to re-sensitize him to ultra-violence is among the most disturbing I have ever seen. I wish there was a Super 8 release of this film.

Finally, there is The Shawshank Redemption
 -

This is one of the only "buddy' films I like. I use to watch it many times on VHS, the scene in the theater where they watch 'Gilda' is among my favorites. If there was only a moment of escape from prison of the mind, films was the way to do it. Nothing like an unobtainable pretty lady glowing right in front of you.

That clockwork orange scene ALWAYS makes me shiver. I can't imagine having my eyes propped open and in a straight jacket...let alone having to do take after take after take to get it just right. Scenes like that would be the only plus side to computer generated effects IMHO. [Eek!]

Hellzapoppin' (1941) - Shemp Howard is a theatre projectionist running what appear to be 35mm Motograph projectors. This is one of the funniest feature films I have ever seen.

Night Of The Comet - A number of scenes is a projection room.

Targets - The drive-in projection room. Sniper kill projectionist when he is looking out the window for a change over.

The Blob - The projectionist get devoured while running the show.

Sherlock Jr. (1924) - Buster Keaton as a projectionist.

Mel Brooks Silent Movie - I vaguely remember the scene with the reel of film wound around Dom Deluise being fed into the projector.

Correction, John -- Gilligan Powered [Wink]

The other night I watched THE CAT FROM OUTER SPACE. The premise of the film is: A UFO is stranded on earth and impounded by the US government. Its pilot, a cat with a collar that has special powers, including the ability to allow the cat to communicate with humans, has eluded the authorities and needs the help of a man named Frank in order to reclaim and repair his ship to get back home.

Roddy McDowall spies on McLean Stevenson with a Super 8 camera while he's being levitated by the cat. Later, he screens the film for his boss but, the footage but it is shot upside down.

These images are from a youtube video dubbed from poor quality VHS...

How about all the *M*A*S*H* epsodes where they are watching features in the mess tent on 16mm with Klinger running the projector?

At least half the time it's the wrong film or the same film they've had for weeks, or the film breaks or in one case the tent rips and drowns the machine with rain water.

Klinger has to show multi-reel features on a single machine, but as they say: "War is Hell".

That trout fishing movie has a interesting year of copyright.
Obviously someone who have no idea about roman numerals have done this, OR, it's made specially as a joke for all who have taken the time to learn roman numerals to enjoy.

What it says?

M=1000, C=100, X=10, IV=4 and III=3.

Perhaps it means year 1114 month 3?

Bryan,

I just saw this print the night before you posted your reply! I have a 16mm copy, slightly on the "dark" side and when this scene came up on the 3rd reel, I missed my opportunity to take a screen-shot.

I have a projector like this(but different), a 300' capacity Bell & Howell Filmo Master. I think it's an 8mm because I also have a patented 200' Keystone take-up reel that looks just like that. There also appears to be about 50' of film on the supply reel, needless to say no bad movie is ever too short! While this movie, 'The Stranger' is a great one.

Side note: When Lorreta Young runs out of the room, Edward G. follows her and leaves the projector running and the lamp ON! Only in the movies...

Speaking of Nazi screenings, I remember in the film THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PIJAMAS, there is a scene of a 16mm sound projector being used to show a group a propaganda film about how inmates in a prision camp are being treated fairly, the film is being shown by the commandant of the camp to a group goverment officials, I think the projector is a Bauer 16mm.

The Abraham Zapruder film shot on the day Kennedy was shot in Dallas was shown in the court scene of Oliver Stone's JFK. This August I visited the 6th Floor of the Book Store Depository where Oswald fired the fatal shots. It is now a museum and has the Zapruder camera (Bell & Howell 414PD) on display. I got an erie feeling looking out the window down onto Dealey Plaza and later standing on the "grassy knoll". I recommend anyone visiting Dallas to include this museum in their itinerary.

That is a Bell & Howell. As far as a model # I'm not so sure. I have one and I still can't recall!

'Blow Out' is one of my personal favorites. It shows a lot of behind the scenes of filmmaking....sound work, editing, matching picture and sound, projecting etc.

That's really close, Janice, but the volume knob at the front bottom and jack under the manual advance wheel are missing -- so my guess is that we're looking for a silent model. This looks very similar to my first projector, a B&H 357B, although there are also several models similar to it.

Showing my age a bit here but a popular British animation series AKA The Wombles did a great episode in 1975 titled FILM SHOW. In this the voice of Bernard Cribbins covers the animation for the Wombles who are usually busy picking up rubbish and recycling it but in this episode they have a film show after making a film. This series was very popular in the UK and don’t think I missed an episode if I could help it.

Last night my film club screened a great tribute to silent films; Days of Thrills and Laughter with many thrilling and hilarious scenes.

Here is Snub Pollard, waking up the projectionist running the film way to slowly, an early Pathé serial being filmed with a hand-cranked camera, a clever title with projected images making up a letter "K", and Mack Sennett taking in a Keystone comedy with Fatty Arbuckle while the projectionist pantomimes what he sees in the theater, Sennett shooting at the villain on screen.

I just watched the 200' B&W silent "D-Day on Mars"....

The hero of the film has a 'secret camera' placed on a bookcase (a reg 8mm) that films the villian and at the end they are watching the footage and the last shot shows the projector. It's hard to tell what it is though. Pretty cool...

someone refresh my memory, did they use projectors in any of the Porky's movies or just hold reels of film in a few scenes?

Janice, That looks like another Bell &Howell mystery model.

Wayne, My dad took me to see Porky's when I was 7 years old! The trailer for it is available on Super 8, I wonder if the feature ever made into a Super 8 optical sound airline print?

Just like in "Blow Out" Brian De Palma uses a movie camera to identify key actions in Dressed To Kill (1980). Does anybody know if the projector/viewer is real or just a movie invention? I can see a "GA" in the lower left of the unit...maybe for GAF? Anyone? Anyone?

Posted by Bill Phelps (Member # 1431) on December 20, 2011, 05:23 PM:
 
Well maybe it is a motorized editor/viewer. I have one myself but I don't see any arms on that one so I'm not so sure.

I don't know about the viewer but the camera looks like it is using a SOM Berthiot Pan Cinor 30 lens. That's a D-mount lens for Regular 8mm cameras. I can't tell what type of camera it is though. I recognized the lens because I have the same one on my Bolex H8.

Ok Gerald here you go...I had Strickly Ballroom (1992), but I had a really tough time locating these screen captures. They were only on for a second or two. I'm still not sure what type of projector...maybe B&H?...or Singer as was mentioned in the previous movie.

The camera might be easier to identify. This shot was in the beginning sequence of the film.

I'm almost embarrassed to state this but my band has the closing song in a current D-grade horror movie called CHILLERAMAthat revolves around the closing of a drive-in movie theatre and quite a few scenes not only involve the projectors but lamenting about the physicality of film.

Also there is an episode of a Horror anthology TV show that revolved around a horror film that makes people murderously mad and one guy threads his own intestines into the projector if i remember.

Also (this may have been mentioned already, but the main characters' buddy in A LITTLE ROMANCE has access to the booth of a porno theatre...

Dino's latest post made me remember about the beginning of True Romance, where Clarance is watching a martial arts film in a theater to celebrate his birthday. Again, I don't think you see a projector but, only it's light and some of the film on the screen.

From last night, here are a few films that feature more imaginary projectors,where you don't quite see them but, you know they are there. In The Magic Lantern (1903) from Georges Méliès, in this brief "trick film" we see two clowns assemble an enormous magic lantern which first projects moving images, then emits dancing girls:

In Walt Disney's Puss in Boots (1922) A boy falls in love with a princess and after seeing a Rudolpho Valensino movie at the local theater, his cat has the idea that he could try impressing the king as bullfighter, to win his daughters hand. Here they are watching the fake movie "Throwing the Bull":

 -

And finally, we get a good glimpse into the world of silent film and it's production with A Tour of the Thomas Ince Studio (1924). A behind-the-scenes look at Thomas H. Ince Studios in Culver City, California, here we see them splicing film together ready to screen rushes for review:

Yes Gerald, Janet Leigh looks like a pro. However, it was her film splicing that tipped Columbo off and pointed her as the guilty party [Cool]

This next movie The Best of Times (1986) was one of my two sons' favorite 80's movies. It starred Robin Williams and Kurt Russell who try and re-create the historical "big game" they lost in high school. It was filmed in the small town of Taft, California. Several of my Bay Area friends came from Taft.

Yes...Doug. They look pretty cool. I've never actually seen one. I'm guessing they work like a giant viewer/editor. In this case they were using it in a newsroom to screen footage ...Do you know any other ways moviolas were used?
 
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on January 01, 2012, 07:23 PM:
 
Janice,

The upright Moviolas (and later flatbed versions) were used to edit films. Picture (either 35mm or 16mm) would run on the right side and mag stock (with the transferred production audio) would run on the left. The editor would find the picture frame where the two hinged sticks of the clapboard came together, then match it up with the corresponding audio. Both tracks would then be interlocked and could be played in sync.

The one used in The China Syndrome would be a 16mm optical sound model, since that was the format for TV news back in the day.

Smile is a 1975 film directed by Michael Ritchie, about a beauty pageant in Santa Rosa, California. The film is a satirical comedy-drama focusing on small-town America and its peculiarities, preoccupations, and hypocrisies.

Here are some screen-shots of the contestants watching a promotional film about themselves going through rehearsals. The print was pink with little color remaining, still, very entertaining...

That's really interesting Bill. I didn't know that. As violent as a lot of the scenes were in Fight Club , this one was one of the more humorous. From the footage (I didn't post here), it looked like Brad Pitt was editing a porn flick [Smile] .., and Edward Norton's voice-over explains that you can tell when a reel is changed by the circle in the upper right corner of the screen... called a cigarette burn.

Does anyone know anything about the device used by the Wilfred Hyde White character in 'The cat and the canary' (1978) to show him reading out his will, twenty years after his death?
I think the makers of this film used some artistic licence as the projector runs through the potential inheritors entire supper, even though it appears to be simply a projector coupled to a cylinder player. It does, however, look similar to some old attempts at home 'talkie' machines I have seen pictures of in the past.

Allan...I really liked this quirky movie... The Cat and the Canary (1978)...especially Wilfrid Hyde White who plays Cyrus West. His monologue in the will-reading scene is priceless. I think the director just took creative license with the length of the projection...there's not enough film to run as long as the scene did.

This film must hold the record for the longest a projector is seen in one film and also most of the film is about the film. Think I got that right?

First of all, from the vintage 1954 classic, "Them," comes Dr. Harold Medford about to instruct Washington chiefs of staff on the ways of ants -- giant mutant ones or otherwise -- by breaking out a classroom film:

I'm guessing (seeing as the view is limited) that it's a Kodak?

Scared my wife as a kid too, but I'd never seen it until now!

OK, even better for the historical value is the 1924 Buster Keaton classic, Sherlock Jr. found at our local library, on a wonderful double-bill Kino DVD with a nice music track. In it Keaton plays an inept wannbe private investigator whose real job is as a projectionist. So we get to see a real, state-of-the-art 1924 projection booth in action, complete with 1000' 35mm reels and arc lighting -- and don't miss the reel rack on the left side, or the metal fire door and window shutters in case the film goes up in flames:

 -

And a fun view of the theater itself, most notably that the best seats are lost to the center aisle, and proof again that silent movies weren't silent, seeing there were four musicians down front:

 -

The plot is a little involved, but all you need to know here is that he starts a reel...

 -

...then promptly falls asleep while sitting on the stool. Through double exposure we see him leave the booth in his dream...

 -

...and then walk right up the aisle and into the picture. The physical comedy that ensues is cute as he reacts to the changing scenes of a travelogue, and the special effects are pretty convincing too. But then he gets caught up in a mystery. For a long time. Like a half hour. Way longer than the reel should've lasted. We were waiting for him to get busted for letting the film run off, but we never see him load the other projector or change over!

At the movies' conclusion, we see into a booth window the now wakened Sherlock looking at the action on the screen -- and mimicing it -- while the unvented arclamp housing is smoking away:

 -

Also great fun in this movie to see some Los Angeles-area neighborhoods as they looked in 1924!

Here are some grabs from a Monty Python episode from 1970. The sketch is the famous "ministry of silly walks".
I think it is a eumig P8?. It is in operation,backwards. At the end of the sketch it is thrown off the screen. I remember this action from the reruns in the 70's, being shocked by the treatment of the machine, and wanting to own a projector myself!

Destruction of a good projector! There should be a law against that!

Janice, the special effects in "Sherlock Jr" ranged from the conventional (and my image above fits into that category, though it was extremely well executed) to some "how did they do that" moments. I don't have much silent movie knowledge, but of anything I've ever watched from the 20s or 30s, nothing else compares to "Sherlock" for its cleverness of technique.

I'd be interested if our resident early film expert, Dino, would be willing to weigh in on this one, with his valuable knowledge?

I'm not sure if this movie has been mentioned before...but Peter O'Toole was in true form as the dissolute matinee idol in My Favorite Year (1982).

BTW...That projector looks more like a tank....what is it?

In Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) Aidan Quinn discovers his 35mm film strung out on the floor...and at the end of the movie the projector starts burning the film after Quinn kisses Rosanna Arquette in the projection booth. This movie also stars Madonna.

...also notice the small movie poster for "Pattern for Plunder".

Much like The Cat and the Canary, Brewster's Millions (1985) starts out with a message from the grave by Hume Cronyn who plays the deceased great-uncle of Brewster played by Richard Prior. Brewster is presented with an offer he can't refuse.

The only shot of the projector is an extreme close-up. This looks more like something you would see in a planetarium. [Confused]

Awakenings (1990) was directed by Penny Marshall. It was nominated for three Oscars including Best Picture and Robert De Niro for Best Actor. Based on true events, De Niro plays Leonard Lowe a victim of an encephalitis epidemic as a child that has left him and a group of others like him in a catatonic state for decades. Robin Williams plays Dr. Malcom Sayer the doctor who administers an experimental drug that for a short time revives Leonard and the others.

Capricorn One (1977) always seemed like a made-for-TV movie to me with such actors as Elliott Gould, James Brolin and Brenda Vaccaro...and let's not forget O.J. Simpson (way before he became public enemy number one.) This movie is about NASA staging a major hoax and almost getting away with it.

The vacation home movies Brenda Vaccaro shows Elliot Gould is a key element in revealing the truth.

Hellzapoppin' (1941) was a film adaption of the very successful Broadway show of the same name. Shemp Howard (one of the Three Stooges) begins the movie as the projectionist of a cinema. This film has some great visual humor.

Super 8 (2011) was written and directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg. It stars Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights TV series). The story takes place in the summer of 1979 when a group of young friends witness a train crash while filming their own movie. Subsequent to the crash they decide to investigate several unexplained events taking place in their town.

The storyline for Night of the Comet (1984) has a comet crashing into Earth and pretty much wiping out every living thing...except for two teenage girls...a group of underground dwellers...and a handfull of zombies. [Eek!] The clips are from a scene just before the comet hits...where one of the soon-to-be surviving girls meets up with a guy who works as a projectionist at the movie theater.

Great pictures and findings...

I've been to the El Rey theater before as seen on "Night of the Comet" to see bands though, no movies were playing but, I did see many movie stars there.

Gerald...I'll keep going until I run out of movies.

I drove by the el Rey when I visited my son in January. He's an actor living in Hollywood very close to the theater. I'm not sure if he's ever gone there to see a movie, but he see's lot's of movie stars [Cool]

I had to find some way to include one of my all time favorite movies and although there are no visable projectors...there are movie cameras :-) Un Homme et une femme (A Man and a Woman) (1966). I have both the French and the English dubbed version...but I prefer it in French. Claude Lelouch directed this beautiful film that tells more with actions and thoughts then dialogue as scenes switch back a forth from color to black & white. It stars Anouk Aimée, Jean-Louis Trintignant and Pierre Barouh. Ya-ba-da-ba-da!

Oh, Yes!

I remember what Oscar said when Felix told him he was going to make a film:

"You're a cleany. Maybe you're a Fellini!"

Oscar introduces Felix to one of his sleazy friends who is also a low budget filmmaker.

They discuss collaborating:

Felix: My film is 16mm.
Phil: Mine is Super-8. We'll blow it up!

Only on set when the actors' clothes start flying does Felix realize he's now making low budget porn.

"CUT!!"

Bell & Howell seems to be the projector of choice in the majority of movies. You get a nice view of a B&H next to Racquel Welch who plays a U.S. team skydiver in Fathom (1967). The lower clip shows her watching a film provided by a Western agency who want to use her skydiving skills for a secret mission.

I'm not sure why so many Sci-Fi movies are about some catostrophic event wiping out the entire human race. There always seems to be a few normal survivors and then a handful of deformed or psychotic survivors that are out to get rid of the normal ones [Eek!] In The Omega Man (1971) Charlton Heston is the lone normal survivor. The clips below show him starting up a huge projector to watch a film about Woodstock [Smile] It's hard for me to imagine Charlton Heston even being remotely interested in Woodstock.

The whole scene is done to the song Kodachrome by Simon & Garfunkel. My grandsons love this movie....and me too!

I don't think we have this one. It's from the pilot of How I Met Your Mother. I wasn't enjoying the episode until I saw this projector. I promptly left the pilot unfinished and turned to this thread. This projector doesn't look like anything I've seen. The reels look 8mm, to my amateur eye, and the film even appears threaded. Maybe the bulb blew in the middle of a screening and the projector was forgotten.

It's always fun to see vintage film equipment show up in an animated feature. In A Monster in Paris (2011) the timeline is 1910...however, the animation...the dialogue...and the songs are very contemporary. The English version I have features the voices of Bob Balaban, Catherine O'Hara...and songs by Sean Lennon.

Hercules Returns (1993) is a very funny Australian film. Three friends buy an old Cinema and for the opening they decide to show the last film that ran in the old theater before it closed...Hercules. Just minutes before the film is to start they find out that the film is in Italian with no subtitles. So the three dub the entire movie themselves...It's hysterical [Smile] [Smile]

In Tennessee Williams' "The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone" (1961) with Vivien Leigh and Warren Beatty there is a scene near the end where 16mm home movies are being shown.

The same scene is in the 2003 remake with Helen Mirren.

It can be seen at the 47:48 mark in this video.

I really liked Will Farrell in this very understated role in Stranger Than Fiction (2006)...also starring Emma Thompson, Dustin Hoffman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Queen Latifah. The clips are from a very brief segment when Will Farrell's character breaks away from his compulsive repetitive behaviors and begins to enjoy living his life. No projector shown...but you know there had to be one [Smile]

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.

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.

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.

A good portion of The Majestic revolves around restoring a movie theater. As such you see the projection booth quite a bit. I can't seem to find any decent pics off the internet, though I suppose I could rip the pics off of the DVD I have but I am not that computer savvy.

Of interest though, the projectors appear to be very old centuries with the shutter blades outside in front of the lenses [Eek!] Plus the screen was masked with academy ratio, before the flat and scope ratios were established. On the rewind bench it looks like that have an old pair of neumade hand cranked rewinds.

The Majestic is a nice film and a possible 'pointless' answer to the question "the films of Jim Carrey" (UK BBC viewers should know the show 'pointless').
The Majestic is almost a projectionist version of Le retour de Martin Guerre (remade as Sommersby)

I noticed this projector scene while watching a 1963 episode of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour. Richard Basehart plays a former actor turned defense attorney. At the conclusion of a murder trial the prosecuting attorney recognizes Basehart's closing argument as verbatim dialogue from a movie script Basehart starred in 30 years ago.

I don't remember the titles but it could remind something to someone else, so I try : a film with Jerry Lewis where he is a pilot and a film is projected (the projector is fully automatic), an episode of the Avenger where Miss Peel is traped by someone and the film that is supposed to proove her fault is projected, a film from an Agatha Christie book in which Miss Marple is watching a 16 mm at the begining (a detective film of course, the film breaks at the end but no need to repair it because Miss Marple understood who the murderer was), a scary movie in which there is a projector in a classroom (I know this is less than precise...) and a French film (with Patrick Bruel)in which they watch a 16 mm film, this is the only one for which I have the title : K (it was easy to remember !)

In The Conjuring they use a 16 mm projector and a 16 mm camera. In Sinister a writer watch films he found in the attic with a projector.

"The Mirror Crack'd" from 1980 begins with the villagers of St. Mary Mead watching a murder mystery film on 16mm. The film breaks just before the Inspector in the movie reveals the killer.

That looks like the hand cranked movie projector that was sold as a toy under the Montgomery Wards name. If I am not mistaken, I believe these were manufactured by Keystone. I have one and it is 35mm.

Earlier this year one chanel reprised the entire series of E. R. and in one of them they looked at some home movies.

 -

 -

Then in Zero Hour they were also looking at some film.

 -

And right now we are seing season two of the Swedish/Danish series Bron/Broen "The Bridge". In episode four there was not a projector but other film stuff, like an editor and several reels and even a super8 camera.

 -

 -

This series (season one) have been sold to a staggering 131 countries worldwide, so the chance for you to see it are rather good. Please do, I recommend it.

This is slightly OT but I have to ask.
In this second season, in the list of executive producers, the name Alexander Vandeputte is present. Is this the same person who frequents this board or is it a namesake?

Hello to all! As a young super 8 film and projector collector and being new to this forum, I also remember a lot of projectors in different episodes of The Simpsons (one is used to give an outdoor movie show, other mostly in Bart's elementary school or used for home movies).

But the appearing of super 8 in film/television that I remember very well is an episode of the Belgian series "FC De Kampioenen" (not well known outside Belgium I guess [Razz] ), in which there is a super 8 projector (a Fumeo 9910), used to give a local film show in town. The owner of the projector was bribed to "eliminate" the movie before the showing, he didn't have the chance to do that, so he tries (in the final part of the episode) to do everything during the show to stop the projection. He plugs out the electricity cable during the show, puts a can of oil in front of the lens and at the end (hoping that nobody would discover why the image dissapeared [Razz] he failed in that, anyway) and when nothing seems to help him to get rid of the film, he smashes down the projector with a big cowbar.

As it's not enough, he takes the film reel of the projector (which is now in pieces on the ground) en soaks the film in a barrel of lubrication oil. Very funny episode (if you understand dutch [Wink] )

The link to the episode: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xDdrnEmIOs

And here some pictures:

In the Australian series "Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries" episode nine of season two, called "Framed For Murder", is set in the film business. In the end of the episode (set in 1928/29) they are showing the first "talkie" from "down under" on a decidedly modern portable 35MM projector.

Then there is a episode of the series "Heartbeat", season 11 episode 14, "From Ancient Grudge", where they use a projector to show films in a town hall.

Watched Sinister (2012 Movie) only the other evening and that was a fascinating watch given that it was all based around an attic find of 8mm Movie film and equipment that as the the title suggests, all had a very sinister background.. very spooky supernatural horror film and quite a good watch indeed!

Yes, SINISTER is a pretty good horror movie with Ethan Hawke, who has made some interesting films. The film and projector is clearly Std 8, or Regular 8 but when the character looks up how to repair the film he looks up Super 8 film. Perhaps this is to show the character isn't familiar with film, anyway, he manages to splice the films okay...

In the spirit of the Halloween genre... Giant tarantulas roam the earth in the movie Tarantula (1955). The audiance learns about the deadly behaviors of tarantulas by viewing a 8mm film. However, the movie simulation on the screen is probably the worst I've ever seen. Notice the black rounded corner boarder around the image. [Smile]

It's been mentioned before, but now I have frame grabs: Hitchcock's "Rebecca" (1940) contains a sequence where the de Winters (Joan Fontaine, Laurence Olivier) view 16mm home movies from their honeymoon. Since Manderley is fictionally located in England, I'm presuming the projector is an Ampro or something like it - but I have no idea.

The scene begins with Mrs. de Winter making an entrance to the viewing room in her new evening gown with a new hair style:
 -

Then, as they begin viewing, you get a brief flash of the side of the projector:
 -

Finally, as the conversation turns darker and trumps any interest of what's on the screen, a Hitchcockian use of the projector's lighting is a little disturbing:

Thanks to my family, we have made a discovery worth putting out on film! In fact, had Shaun the Sheep been around back in the package film era, you can imagine how well it would've worked to have silent prints of this stuff. Well, here we are in the Internet age, and thanks to Amazon Prime, here are photos from Shaun the Sheep, Season 3, Episode 4, segment 3 entitled (most appropriately) "Film Night." Aardman did a super job with this. Having this on Super 8mm or 16 would be a treat.

http://8mmforum.film-tech.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=8;t=001619;p=3#000071

A very funny episode! Always wondered how they got film for the camera?... developed it? ... and powered the projector? [Smile] I guess it doesn't pay to think too much about the details and just enjoy the comedy [Smile]

Lou Franchetti had an absolutely gorgeous print of that Gilligan's Island episode at CineSea a couple of years ago.

You can't really appreciate the colors and the scenery of that show until you see a 16mm print.

-The answer to every technical challenge on Gilligan's Island was always "The Professor figured it out!".

He understood everything except...Ginger!

Jim seems to like the same films I like!
Okay, here is another many will maybe not know because it is a Canadian show, in fact, was broadcast right here in Hamilton, Ontario at CHCH TV, filmed locally as well.
Bwana Clide Batty from Hillarious House of Frightenstein:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PSbkHO3R5Y
Every episode(many of which are still being hunted for) featured this tangled mess of a projector.
[Smile]
not sure if one can make out the type, but since it is local to here and i cant seem to find anything but B&H or Kodaks around here, I bet it is a BH 16mm Autoload or something [Smile]
 
Posted by Janice Glesser (Member # 2758) on November 27, 2015, 01:24 PM:
 
Matt...My guess is that projector is nothing more than a stage prop. It doesn't look like any 16mm I've ever seen. That lens is huge...more like for a slide projector lens or even more like a TV Camera lens. It's pretty flimsy too...might just be cardboard. I love all the film ribboned around it [Smile]

I ran a search and didn't see this one listed, so apologies if it has been mentioned and i missed it:

SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET

Real good Reel/projector footage in this one. Someone may know the projector type, i couldn't make it out myself...
The Dalai Lama is secluded, and watches films to learn more about life outside of Tibet. He asks Brad Pitt in one part to make him a 'movie box', ie. a mini cinema, which they watch films in.

What looked like a 16mm projector, I say that because it was out of focus, was in the Episode of Father Brown shown Tuesday. It was strange as it was about a cinema film being made, but the camera was shown to be an Arriflex 16 (not what I would have thought would be used for feature films in England in 1959' when this was set). The rushes were 16mm but at the end the Father was tied up with 35mm film that was being viewed on an editor (Moviola???).

Other film equipment shown was not right, a Bolex H16 being used as a sound on film camera and so on so it may have been a 8mm projector shown from the rear close to camera.

You can see (very) briefly a movie projector in the film "Moonwalkers" I saw at the videma. Although the story is set in the UK (and partly in the USA), it seems, from the end crédits, that some scenes (the best ones probably ?) were shoot in Belgium.

Remember the TV Show Mystery Science Theater 3000? Well...they made a movie too. It was basically the same format with a guy and two robots making funny sarcastic commentary while watching very bad sci fi movies. In the movie version the commentary was a lot more edgy...and very funny. Anyway they used a projector stage prop at the introduction and during a mid-movie break.

Here's a projector sighting I just spotted in Warren Beatty's recent movie Rules Don't Apply. Movies about Howard Hughes in his later life deal with his bizarre behavior and this film was no exception. I liked the film's quirkiness and its supporting cast. Annette Bening...Matthew Broderick... Alec Baldwin...Martin Sheen...and Candice Bergen.

Although this is a commercial for the iPhone there's plenty of film and projector references. Interesting juxtapositioning of the two technologies.

I've watched my 16mm print of One On One (1977) a dozen times and just last night noticed this shot which was only on for a split second. My print wasn't good enough to get a decent screen capture...so I got this one off my digital copy. I know this is a Kodak Analyst 16mm projector because I have one [Smile]

"Scorcese", you say?

Something I found out when I became a Dad is it changes your on-screen life considerably. Starting in 2003, by wife and I started seeing kid-flicks and did for years. We saw every iteration of Winnie the Pooh that came on screen. We saw nothing racier than a couple of Pixars. PG rated became like an "X"! ("They're holding hands...That's so HOT!")

It happened one time when he was about 9. This was something called "Hugo". I had no idea what it was about: probably the usual heroic neighborhood kids saving the world from idiotic adults, so I went (It's the Dad's Job!).

I got about 20 minutes into it and realized I was in the presence of one of my favorite film genres: "films about film".

-years of Winnie the Pooh had finally paid off!

Later we bought the Blu-Ray, it made a nice double-feature with Blackhawk's "Le Voyage dans la Lune".

Watched "A Monster Calls" 2016 last year. Starring Sigourney Weaver, Felicity Jones and a very talented young actor Lewis MacDougall. I would not recommend it for young children, due to the subject matter of his mother slowly dying of cancer....it could be a bit much...anyway its a well made and thought provoking film, here are a couple of screen shots from last year.

Did anyone mention the 1973 horror - thriller MADHOUSE with Vincent Price & Peter Cushing ?
I recall 2 scenes - 1st one where Cushing is showing clips of Price's old AIP films on a 35MM projector at his home .
2nd one is at the end when Cushing turns on the 35mm projector in his home to see a scene that Price had filmed as he burns down the set in the TV studio - then Price appears in front of the screen to kill Cushing .
Fun stuff !
But I wish I had some screen shots of it for you all ! [Frown] [Frown] [Frown]

This is more of a film viewer than a projector.
Spotted it in the 2009 movie The Box starring Cameron Diaz, James Marsden, and Frank Langella.

I checked, it seems that miss one of the most "important" films for us small format filmakers.
The Polish "Amator", of 1979, of Krzysztof Kieslowski.
It's history (I no spoiler, it's also available with subtitled, see it!) of an ordinary man who is absorbed into the power of cinema... in good and bad.
In the movie there are many items of small format in iron curtain: a soviet Quarz 2 Double 8 and a 16mm Krasnogorsk 3, a Czechoslovakian editor viewer Meopta Meonet compact N, many big "table" editor viewer, small format reels and films, in the laboratory where the protagonists work there is also a projector, but I should review to understand what model it is.

Thanks for the link to Pawn Stars and the F.D.R. standard film Mathew James [Smile]
That would've been amazing if it proved that someone with a standard 8mm camera went back in time to film from 1882 [Smile]

You're welcome Clinton! Glad you enjoy it.

Found another hidden projector in Ray Harryhausen's Mother Goose starting in at the :38 seconds mark. You can watch it here folks.These little animated shorts are awesome!:

In Tommy Cooper: Not Like That, Like This a TV movie about his life, he was seen watching a Laurel & Hardy short from Standard 8. I could not identify the projector as all shots of it were with the light from it hitting the camera lens.

The Film Bulletproof Monk (2003) has projectors, screening room, and assorted cine gear as one of the main characters has a job as a projectionist.

Danish adult film of the late 60's and early 70's occasionally features projectors as a 'plot device'.

The adult feature 'The Private Afternoons of Pamela Mann' features projectors several times, including a projector in the bedroom (who hasn't one of those), and also a bonkers portable flashlight mounted on a hard hat which is supposed to be a cine camera.

Also

1. The Beatles Film Help has a projector in the first few minutes (Titles /Intro)

2. Midnight Cowboy - Projectors in the Hip Couple party scene

3. The Film 'The Dambusters' has a projector sequence where Barnes Wallis shows off the bouncing bomb.

On Talking Pictures TV (CH81 - Freeview) this Thursday, 25th, at 6pm is George Cukor's 'It Should Happen To You' 1954 - starring:
Judy Holliday; Peter Lawford; and Jack Lemmon (according to my father in his first major role??)

Lemmon plays a would-be documentary film-maker who meets Judy Holliday (surely one of the best comedic actresses of all-time and who died quite young of breast cancer age 44 in 1965) in Central Park, New York.

Nearing the end of the film Judy enters Lemmon's room (not realising that he has moved-out) and comes across a 16mm projector all set-up and threaded with the film footage that he had (discreetly) shot of her - which she then proceeds to watch.

I'm sure one of you fine people will be able to identify the projector in use in the scene - as I said, the film was made in 1954.

Ali.

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

Janice...what is the title of the Star Trek episode? I am a fan too but I don't remember seeing that either.

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:

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] )

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.

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.
