So the lens of my Chinon 7000 seems to have some dirt in it. Or at least is shows when it projects. Anyone know how I might be able to clean this?

If the dirty you see is on the edge of screen (not in the middle of the screen) it is usualy the dirt not on the lens but on the film path. Clean the area where the light comes through a small square hole. Dirt/dust are usually accumulated here after playing several dirty films.

I usually clean the edge of the square hole with a small stick because dust can be really hard there after sometime.
