Which film company had a shop at

Capital Films, or Capital Film Distributors to give them the correct name. Ah happy days!

No Chris, it's still Capitol who used to operate from Wardour St.
in days of yore before they moved to St. Albans.

My memory is fading, but didn't Capitol Film Distributors sell Castle Super 8 imports from their premises at 193 Wardour Street?

Walton Sound and Film Services were at 87 Richford Street.

I'll hazard a guess,is it an early address of Collectors Club Lee?
 
Posted by Lee Mannering (Member # 728) on May 03, 2013, 06:01 AM:
 
Nope.
Amazing when we cast our minds back to the early 70’s (a clue) just how many cine equipment and film suppliers covered the UK.

SINY SERVICES, a little known 8mm distributor, am I right?
 
Posted by David Ollerearnshaw (Member # 3296) on May 03, 2013, 02:02 PM:
 
I wonder if its ELMO/Ilford

Hugh SINY Services sounds like a naughty film service [Big Grin] Have seen them in the earlier mags.

As far as I'm aware they seemed to disappear from the scene by
the '70's,but were there in '69.They sold the usual stuff plus
adult films which were the fairly innocent titles.
