Just browsed through some films I was given by a friend ...

Not sure where you are about censorship, so I do a censored one

Got a danish commercial on Super 8, for a Braun Shaver
 -

 -

If you're okay with nudity, I can modify the post to get it with no censor (I hate censorship myself, but not sure how you all feel about it)

Fanta, a nice drink
 -

 -

And an old Disney, Alice's Egg Plant
 -

 -

and Animal World, terribly red
 -

Better with filters, but light is very much lower

Vidar, I'm sure others will differ, but I appreciate the censorship and keeping a more-than-not family friendly atmosphere in this community.

My wife and I had a movie club party last night in the back yard. I'm not sure if digital films are allowed on this thread but I did show some Super 8mm home movies that I shot earlier this year before the main attraction. They included Kayaking on the white river near Lake Wenatchee in Washington, Crater Lake in Oregon and my wife's cousin skydiving for the first time.

The feature presentation was The Rocky Horror Picture Show in HD with my new NEC digital projector. The guests could view it from the swimming pool, hot tub or patio furniture. I projected it on a 12' wide cloth screen I made from a drop cloth. The screen worked great but I need to find some better fabric to make it out of. The projector could easily handle a larger picture if I could come up with a way to make a larger screen.

Believe it or not there were 3 "40 Year Old Virgins" in the audience who had never seen this movie. I thought everyone from my generation has seen it. In college we used to go see it at the midnight movie and throw rice and toast at the screen. We didn't do rice and toast in my back yard for fear of clogging the pool filter and getting my dogs sick.

I never did like that movie, though I'm of that generation, however, it does have a big cult following.

The funny thing is that there were a lot of copycat movies trying to cash in on it's success, but couldn't.

However, I must admit, I wouldn't doing the "TimeWarp" again! (chuckle)

That song has been stuck in my head since we watched the movie. It's definitely not a movie for everyone. The "Virgins" were surprised at the subject matter considering it was made in 1975.

For shame Osi, "Rocky Horror" is surely a classic, I don't care much
for musicals, but this little film is definately the exception for me.
Well chosen Bryan.A real party starter.

"Let's face it Mac that basic black is coming back" [Smile]

Interesting film. Not quite Rocky Horror. I have the digest for "Rocky Horror Picture Show". Watched it last week. Lots of fun.

Last night I watched three digests.

AIRPORT

AIRPORT '77

And in honor of the late, great Karen Black,

AIRPORT 1975

I did not watch THE CONCORD 1979. I do not own it. I never will. It is a piece of **** film not worthy of the Airport name.

Vidar, Laksmi has done his share of "lines of pictures" in the past,
which we all enjoyed, so no apologies needed. Nice pictures by
the way.

Screening time last night here, been way too long since last time, and for once: I remembered to get pictures!

So last night, me and the missus invited her brother + 1 to dinner, with some proper film entertainment afterwards. Now that the autumn is coming, it's usually quite dark already at 9 PM, so ideal conditions for some outdoor cinema action.

Spent yesterday setting up the ol' tent on the terrace, preparing it for the show:
 -
Here's the tent, a small 3x3 meter "party-tent", which fits nicely onto my deck. The screen is an old tripod "silverscreen" which does the films good justice. On the floor you can see the B&H speaker, from my 16mm machine, which connects to the projector inside the house. It's a four-seater, can easily squeeze in more, and the bedroom (window seen behind the chairs) serves as projection booth.

 -
The ST-1200 fires up, and does its job great! We saw a few reels of home movies first, before moving on to the main feature. Here's the crowd and the projector!

And on the menu tonight: "The Music Box"! - a very nice 600' copy, but a bit on the blue side.
 -

--------------------
Well who’s on first? Yeah. Go ahead and tell me. Who. The guy on first. Who. The guy playin’ first base. Who. The guy on first. Who is on first! What are you askin’ me for? I’m askin’ you!

It’s taken some time (a few years) but we have finally got round to doing a computerised listing of our commercial cine films. It took no less than 7 hours to do but we did it in the end against years of ‘we must get round to that’ and amazing what you actually find when having a clear out. Anyway, interspersed with listing the film titles we watched a few little gems as follows as you do…..

(Super 8)
Devilled Hams
Carry on Screaming
Un Chein Andalou

(Standard 8)
Cut it out)

(16mm)
Moving Pictures (Pretty amazing )
Theatre Royal (1943)

(17.5mm sound)
Blow me down (Popeye)

(35mm and exhausted)
Nitrate film ‘Betty Boops Rise to Fame’
Its Ok I used a low heat lamp!!

Pictures will be uploaded when we recover.

Christian. Your pictures are excellent when can we all move in?
My own outdoor show in Bridlington is taking place in Oct so watch this space!

Thanks guys!

Yeah, it was a little cold, around 8 degrees or so when we started at 10 PM, but it dropped quickly so the blankeys helped [Smile] It's a nice setup for my use, I plan to leave it up at least until it starts snowing, so that it's only five mins for me to setup a screening.

The program in total was about an hour (three 200' reels of home movies + 600' Music Box), which meant I had to cut "Popeye meets Ali Baba" as it got too cold and late

Brrrrr, and I thought here in germany (now few minutes befor midnight it is 17°C) it is too cold for outdoor screening.

But its looks realy cozy.
Thanks for the detailed pics Christian, I like to see more than the screenshots.

Wow, Lee its nice to hear that you can screen nitrate film. A friend of mine can do it too, the quality of old b/w or technicolor nitrate prints are outstanding.

Bad news! The wind picked up last night, without warning, and I awoke to find the "movie tent" curled and twisted on the ground. Oh well, it was a cheap tent (only 40 dollars), but a real shame as the setup worked great [Frown]

I guess it's time to move the screenings to the garage!

Oemer: 17 degrees? That's when we go swimming! ;-)

Lately I've started to get more interested in the films I made back when I first got into S8 back starting in the late 1970s. It's actually quite a project, because they are all spliced with overlapped cement splices and for some reason my Elmo sound projectors stumble on this kind of join. So every couple of days I take a film, toss the steel can (they are all acetates), resplice it with the Bolex beveled splicer, and give it a cardboard box and a label.

Last night I watched a film I made when I was 20 years old and it was just as nice to see as in 1982. Love that Kodachrome, magical stuff!

It seems like ages since I have had time for a film at home, but this weekend hopefully will get me back on track again...Friday we did an outside screening on 16mm The Life and Death of 9413, a Hollywood Extra (1928), and a DVD of Souls For Sale in front of the old Ince Studios in Culver City, then spent Saturday in the dark watching movies at Cinecon, and finally today had some friends over to watch another one of those movies like Rocky Horror that aren't for everyone...A polarizing movie that was revolutionary for its time...That being said it was a 16mm IB Tech print with the appropriate amount of lines and wear to provide context for PINK FLAMINGOS (1972, 2 x 1600ft). It is hard to believe that the mainstream movies Hairpspray and Cry Baby were made by the same man.

All in super 8 : King Kong Trailer, Camera Thrills In Wildest Africa (a Castle film in an Universal 8 box, which is half surprising as Universal 8 was the new Castle film name) and Tom and Jerry (Designs On Jerry).

fabulous screen shots by everyone. I can't believe how cold it is in Norway and to watch movies. great stuff.

I had the opportunity to put on a few reels of one of my favorite DW Griffith feature films the other day. Hearts of the World-Standard 8mm Blackhawk/ watching a Griffith film is like watching a poem. This one is about the toll of war on the lives of its characters. Lillian Gish (first pic) the graceful actress, is luminescent as she looks right at the audience in this amazing solo scene.

Last night and tonight: two reels each of a thoroughly...broken in print of "Carry On Camping".

Nice color, good sound, but more lines than the New York Subway system!
