I do manual changeovers at the house.

-they'd be a lot better if I only had two right hands!

I do much better having a feature split onto two large reels and just declaring an intermission.

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

That is very much my prefered method also Steve. [Big Grin] [Wink]

I cannot imagine how hard it must be to synchronize one moving picture with another, then shut off the lamp from the expired films projector at just the precise moment while bringing in the next machine, without anyone noticing on a giant screen what has just taken place!

I guess I'd have to be an Octopus before I'd find it a doddle, either that or an ambidextrous Centipede!

No,.. two reels and an interval or all in one run I'm afraid for a mere amateur projectionist such as myself, is more than enough!

You have enough to concern yourself with keeping the gate clean, adjusting the focus occasionally and rectifying the sound.
After that we begin to enjoy what we witness on screen!

Hopefully now, all digi (press a few buttons here and there) fans that are present here, will begin to understand entirely why we call this a very different experience from a beamer and very much "A Labour Of Love" [Smile]

And to think, when the album was out by the very same name, a beamer was a casual expression for a BMW and Derann were doing the best they ever had! [Big Grin] [Wink]

It always makes me happy and sad at the same time to see all of these wonderful pics as, I'd LOVE to go to Cinesea but with our budget, (pretty much just scraping by except for the odd dollar coming in), we just can't afford to pack up a road trip all the way across the country ...

One of these days .... [Frown] [Smile]

With 16mm, at least, and accurate leader countdowns, synchronising shouldn't be a problem. I'm guessing it would be the same with 8mm?

On Saturday, things rolled on. Gary Crawford and Gary Sloan usually find something to make a deal with:

 -

"Mr. TNT" Todd Tuckey arrived with his family again and made the rounds:
 -

Special mention goes to Jason who came to us again all the way from Japan. He brought several goodies this time. Japanese 400-footers anyone?:
 -

 -

 -

...and the deal of the show, courtesy of Jason as well:
a GS-1200 for $500! (It went to a good home..)

 -

David Baker was showcasing an interesting lamp modification on this Bell and Howell:
 -

The note explains this good affordable way to use a modern lamp:
 -

At the limit; there are some more to come...

It seems all Japanese prints there are on Fuji stock. Any luck on the color fade?

Graham - At the bottom left of the Beatles cover in the photo, you can just make out the words "Magical Mystery Tour." As Winbert points out, it would probably have been printed onto Fuji film, so,most likely, would have far better colour than the muddy ones we get in the UK and Europe.I,too,would be curious about the contents of the Bay City Rollers film if Jason can enlighten us all,please?

Fabulous set of photo's,Claus, by the way. Please keep them coming!

Thank's Claus for sharing these photos and stories. I really enjoyed Cinesea.

The Bay City Rollers 200ft was released by Fujifilm in Japan. Apparently, they were very big in Japan in the late seventies. I believe its what you would call a kinescope, so the source material doesn't have the best picture but the optical sound is excellent.

The Bay City Rollers are performing live and the digest shows clips of them playing at least 6-7 of their songs.Here's a link to a video I shot when I projected the film.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2ae_-5lCReFTHJmNVBGNzBXX0k

The Beatle's 200fter is a digest of The Magical Mystery Tour movie. It still has a lot of colors but it had more purple fade than whats typical from a Fujifilm digest.

Usually the colors on these Fujifilm digests from the 1970s looks great but they can have some purple fade. Some prints hold up better than others.

Excellent, thanks for the pics, Jason!

CineSea is a great place to showcase your t-shirts. Meet the "Castle Brothers" (accompanied by Joe Griesbach):

 -

..speaking of Joe, he arrived with his new acquisition, a talking teddy bear. He claims he got it at a casino, as I recall (you'll have to ask him for the sordid details... [Big Grin] )
 -

Open wide! commercial Isco 'scope lenses are a great bargain for home use these days (I have one myself); all you have to do is come up with a mount. This is Gary Sloan's solution:
 -

 -

David Lucidi (on the right) had a great time with us and sent a very warm note on Facebook to the group expressing how much he enjoyed the event. Hope to see you again in the fall, David!
 -

Can't forget "Mr. Espresso" John Capazzo. He was back in force with good coffee and homemade cheesecake:
 -

...and in addition to his culinary skills, he is also a service tech for Elmo ST-1200s. Here is one "at the doctor's" during the show:
 -

That's it for this batch; I'll try to wrap it up with the next installment.

Finally Saturday night drew near, and with that, the dinner. The Boathouse, which we had enjoyed on previous occasions, had re-opened just in time to accommodate us again. Excellent meals were had, and much fun:
 -

 -

 -

 -

Todd Tuckey had arranged for a commemorative "anniversary" cake to celebrate 15 shows. John would have loved this:
 -

After dinner, back to the films! Lovely prints were screened, including this classic cartoon:
 -

...and our on-going serial "The Crimson Ghost", Tammy Tuckey's absolute favorite, of which we do a couple of chapters each show:
 -

With the end of the show on Sunday came another tradition: the group shot:
 -

As people packed up and started leaving, the mood was one we all knew: a sense of warmth and friendship and a feeling that once again, this little hotel by the Jersey shore had been home to something special: a celebration of film collecting and film in general in the midst of a digital world that knows little about such things anymore.

If any of what we have posted has piqued your interest, please start thinking about our fall CineSea, and if you can possibly attend. You will be welcomed and odds are very good you'll love it!

Thank you as always for looking and reading; I hope the images and words have helped convey the atmosphere of "The Biggest Little Show on the Shore" :-)
Claus.

Superb as always, Claus!

What's great about this is something like 5 years ago we inherited this idea from John Black and all we hoped for it at the time was to put up one last weekend in his honor.

These days, at basically every weekend we have one or two new people join, and when they head home we know they will be back.

This wonderful, whacky, simple little thing we have is good, and it looks like it's growing too.

That cake, although spelled wrong(Cinessa?), looks extremely YUMMY! [Big Grin]

Claus always does an amazing job, not only with his photos but also his prose.

Here are a few more pics, along with some details of what was screened on Saturday night.

 -
The view from the balcony on Friday morning.

 -
Early morning kite flyers on the beach.

A few items from my tables:
 -

 -
Claus actually ends up in a photo! We celebrated his birthday at the group dinner.

 -

Friday afternoon we tested out the Super 8 projection setup with a well received showing of part one of the scope True Lies digest. Part two was shown the next day.

Saturday evening's screening started with Derann's Dolby Stereo Fanfare short blasting through the speakers. Then came:
The Living Picture Show
Long trailer for Shout At The Devil
Yellow Submarine trailer
Universal Orlando Cinema Snip
Three selections from Cinema Advert Reel #27: Kit Kat, King Kong Coke & the claymation Levi Double Stitched Jeans Ad
The beautiful looking extra long promo for Disney's Dinosaur

Charlie Chaplin's The Cure (courtesy Steve Klare)
An amazing sci-fi trailer reel that Jason Smith brought from Japan
The Little Rascals in Reunion in Rhythm (courtesy Shorty Caruso)
Ken Films' 200 footer Bucket of Blood

Scope reel:
Gorgeous trailer for The Black Hole
Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines trailer (faded but fun)
Oliver trailer
Derann's Grease extract featuring Summer Nights

And that doesn't include the 16mm titles!

Good job documenting this event, I always enjoy looking at the pictures and reading the comments from those that attend and those who wish they could. The film selections and equipment look really good -- lots of bargains to be had and cine compadres to be made.

I've watched some of Todd Tuckey's videos on the previous "Cinessa" events and I can see why the peanut gallery howls with delight on some of these titles. Amazing compilations there, I can only hope to have a film event like this in California someday. Thanks for sharing!

Once again, thank you Claus for even more fantastic images of this growing event, time on time. And also thanks to Doug there then, for his highly detailed inscriptions of just what was presented during the event on Super 8mm!
Wonderful stuff all round! [Wink] [Wink]

As one of the originals, I praise the superb pictography of Claus, he truly documents our gatherings with excellent detail - Doug is a very dedicated craftsman, a true merit to his work (and keeping us all in-line [Smile] - All of us at CINESEA means more than screening old films, it is us, the film people who are family and we welcome all to our house - To the memory of John Black, we will always be grateful - Salute and Cheers from Shorty
