Thanks Stewart! I appreciate the information. The Kinoton website gives a lot of info. The FP38 is 35/16 and super 16 and is marvelous but I feared the prices. That's what I expected, nearer 10 than 5. Perhaps I can find a refurbished one...

Thanks Stewart
Has your company ever thought of putting a behind the scenes dvd together especially while you are still running film projectors.

Graham,
The only behind the scenes stuff that we did was for local tv news when we first opened,usual cheesey 3 minutes worth.
Cineworld would never fund such a thing unfortunately.
Regards
Stewart

Steven,
The dual format 16/35,seems to me to be a very curious beast.I`ve never seen one ,but for the life of me i cant think of any demand for such a projector except for small arthouse or private exhibition. It could be a very long wait before you find perfection my friend [Smile]

Michael,

quote:
What the feck is "Fucking Amal"?
Fucking Åmål is a charming Swedish film from about 10 years ago. I suppose you could call it a 'coming-of-age' comedy/drama about a couple of teenage girls who live 'in the middle of nowhere', a place called Åmål. The director, Lukas Moodysson, went on to make another 2 very worthwhile films: 'Together' and 'Lilya 4 ever'. Not sure what he did after that.

Moodyson later made the films "A Hole In My Heart" (2004), "Container" (2006) and "Mammoth" (2009).
The only of his film I have seen is "Lilja 4-ever", and that felt like a kick in the crotch. And I acctually mean that in a positive way.
The only other film that is equal and even tops it is another Swedish film "Älska Mig" (Love Me) from 1986. I ran it for a week at the cinema and I was more or less mentally drained every night. It is probably THE best Swedish film I have ever seen, I have never seen it since and I don't want to see it again for as long as I live. Thats how good it is!

Would you perhaps want to see what Åmål really looks like? Then take a gander at my photostream at Flickr:

There you also can see some photos from my moonlighting at the cinema the last couple of years (pictures from the projectionbooth).
