SNAP!!
I also started the night with BAMBI MEETS GODZILLA - just received from Wayne.
Main feature: PLYMOUTH ADVENTURE (1952) Very nice IB Tech print.
Both 16mm.

Dino, thanks for the pics. I haven't seen that movie at all. Is that a 16mm print?
Good ol' Patsy.

After hours of digging out from the blizzard (26" here), I warmed up with an all 16mm show. First, Chapter 11 of PANTHER GIRL OF THE KONGO with beautiful Phyllis Coates followed by the William Castle feature HOMICIDAL.

The Quiet Man (abridged), 5x400'. Color still good!

Thomas,

That reminds me, I've been meaning to do a weekend marathon Chris Lee Dracula Super 8mm screening, starting with Horror of Dracula and finishing with Dracula AD, 1972.

Jean-Marc, your DTS decoder is identical to the unit in theater 10 at work, except the DTS logo is different.

We have 3 DTS theaters: 6, 8 and 10. Only 10 has the unit like yours. 6 has an older unit and 8 has a special unit for open captions.

Douglas, I have all the Chris Lee Draculas on DVD but only 2 on Super 8, (Horror Of) Dracula, and Scars Of Dracula. Scars is red but watchable and the other is pristine, thankfully!

Hi Gian, welcome back.

How was Africa? share a bit story of your trip please (at General Yak of course).

And the most important question,did you find some movies?
ps: If you were in South Africa, I am sure you will. Since 16 mm was widely used there.

cheers,

Thomas : there's an older unit than the one I run? The inner parts of this one have been upgraded last year, though.
I found the DTS disc for the Runaway Brain short I purchased from you a few months ago. I ran the print yesterday for equalization purposes. [Big Grin]

3D day, today. I'm just back from the advance screening of the stereoscopic version of Toy Story (saw it with the excellent Dolby 3D system) and getting our projector ready for a BD evening with "My Blooby Valentine". Yum.

Monday Night February 8 2010

DVD Projection

National Lampoon's Gold Diggers
(a.k.a. Lady Killers)

Two young college guys who are down and out on their luck come up with the perfect plan: they will marry two old biddies and it won't be too long before the biddies bite the dust and they live happily ever after with the biddie's estate money & get the girl of their dreams.

This was one of those bargain priced DVD's, only $5.00 - with a cover photo that was too sexy to refuse. The movie is of course kind of dumb. But it had it's funny moments, such as the preacher at the wedding for example.

No Oscars for this one.......

Reels 1 through 3 of "When the North Wind Blows" on Super-8. Reels 4 through 6 tonight.

Side note: I've fallen into this very informal "movie club" at work. Every day at lunchtime they grab a conference room and show a DVD using a laptop and a video projector on the pull-down screen. This week it's been "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" in 40 minute segments.

Maybe someday I'll bring an Elmo to work....

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

Jean-Marc, after looking at the one in theater 6 yesterday, it may just be a different model. It has 3 trays instead of two. One is for a trailer disc. It's also all black and has no LEDs to tell you what the unit is doing.

The open captioned unit in theater 8 is interesting in that it will actually store the discs data in it's memory so the disc itself does not need to be in the unit to work. It can hold up to 30 discs in it's memory and then dumps the last one when it reaches capacity. We keep a clipboard by it with a list of what movies are currently in the unit. I personally loaded the disc and made the entry for Crazy Heart just a week ago. The unit also has a small display that will show info like the reel # playing and elapsed runnning time. A small directional pad is right below the display and that's where you can activate the open captions.

The unit in 10 that looks like yours, is brand new and was just installed last month.

Anyway, since I got sent home early from work yesterday due to the snowstorm, I threaded up the Bell & Howell and watched the following:

Brer Rabbit & The Tar Baby
Robin Hood Rescues Maid Marian
The Rescuers Down Under (2x600' and 1x400')

While I am still tuning up my Babies I took a break to watch a short...This was reportedly the last Mermaid silent comedy and a beautiful Blackhawk standard 8 print 1 x 400ft. The film is HONEYMOONIACS(1929)and stars Monte Collins and Betty Boyd who did not make many films but is adorable. Monte on the other hand made a gazillion films...It is a B/W print but I know that the original nitrate prints were entirely tinted amber (we have one at work) so I added a filter to simulate that (disregard the different hues of the pics since my camera must have been on auto white balance).

Last night, "Lena and the Geese" (Mary Pickford, 1912)
followed by "Coffy" 400ft digest. Seeing "Black Dynamite" last week made me choose Coffy. OT, but Black Dynamite was very well done, and hilarious.

We watched "Yellow Beard" . Optical print with good Eastman color. There was something missing from the big production. Not sure if it the gags or directing. Marty Feldman's last picture(sad).
