The 20th CineSea Film Collectors gathering is just a month away and once again we'll be screening a film the night before the event. This will take place at 7:30 PM on Friday, October 11th at our new location, the Shalimar Resort & Conference Center in Wildwood Crest, New Jersey. Admission is free.

Let's pick the film! If you're coming to CineSea and have a print you'd like to show, please list the title and format (Standard 8mm/Super 8mm/9.5mm/16mm/35mm) here by 9/27. We'll then have an online survey and attendees can pick which title they prefer. The winner will be announced on 10/7. This time we're limiting the nominations to one title per collector.

Our previous winner was Todd Tuckey's 16mm IB Tech scope print of Roustabout. The Friday Night Feature started with CineSea 11, and we've shown The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein, Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, Aliens, Beetlejuice, House of Wax (3-D!) and Psycho.

My offering is the Super 8mm color/scope print of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

I look forward to the celluloid skirmish to come. Let the battle begin!

Don't forget about "Fright Night" from two years ago! That one was a great one!!! [Smile]

Jason, my wife was SO excited when you listed "Rear Window" last night, that she instantly stated "That gets my vote, hands down". [Razz]

I then told her you changed it to Poltergeist, and she got even MORE giddy with excitement!! Great choices! [Big Grin]

Although I probably don't have much chance against the GREAT films already put up for nomination , here is my puny attempt to unseat them -
re-recorded in English by the great Adam Deierling .

Here are some actual screen shots for your enjoyment....




A rather " obscure " title with an important message to mankind at the very end .

Great choices so far, as always!! Given that it's going to be close to Halloween, and keeping with the theme of October movies being more in the 'horror/suspense genre', my submission for the Friday night feature will be my gorgeous 16mm LPP print of......

The 1978 classic remake "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" starring Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Leonard Nimoy, and Jeff Goldblum


Happy Voting and hope to see many of you at CineSea 20!! [Big Grin]

You are absolutely right! The original Fright Night was shown at CineSea 16.

I officially re-nominate A Hard Day's Night, if anyone is still interested in Beatlemania.

Since it's a short film, maybe we can revisit the idea of a double feature? Or should I not even go there?

You've got to be in it to win it. Good luck to all!
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on September 10, 2019, 03:40 PM:
Longtime CineSea attendee Ed Gower has submitted his beautiful 16mm print of The Wizard of Oz.

Stuart, If a relatively short film such as A Hard Day's Night (87 minutes) should win, we could have a short b-pic accompany it. We'll see.....

Thank you, Douglas.
Posted by Nicole Tucky (Member # 5587) on September 11, 2019, 07:09 PM:
Ooooo! Save "Hard Day's Night" for the Spring. I really want to see that one and I don't want to miss it this fall if y'all chose it!
Posted by Geoffrey Curtis (Member # 5599) on September 12, 2019, 12:31 PM:
For me, I'll throw a 35MM print of "Men In Black" into the pile.

For Joe Griesbach, he's submitting a 35MM print of "Night of the Comet"

Either print will be "built" to minimize interruptions. [Big Grin]

Also submitted is The Star Chamber, 16mm LPP scope, courtesy of Brian Stearns.

Nine films so far....

I would like to offer our new Lpp print of “The Blob”
Posted by Evan Samaras (Member # 5070) on September 18, 2019, 11:05 AM:
Lou, would that be the one from 1958?!
Posted by Louis Franchetti (Member # 2035) on September 18, 2019, 12:14 PM:
Sorry yes the 1958 version in 16mm
Posted by Douglas Meltzer (Member # 28) on September 25, 2019, 09:20 AM:
Two days left to proffer your preferred print for possible picking to be projected at

I would like to elect my Nice 16mm Fuji color uncut letterbox print of An American Werewolf in London for the scary month of October. It does have subtitles on the bottom in English, but they are way on the bottom and I can mask them off if anyone cares? Fun film to watch on the big screen with an audience! One of the best werewolf films of the 80’s!

Congratulations to Lou Franchetti, whose 16mm LPP print of The Blob will be the CineSea 20 Friday Night Feature. I look forward to hearing the catchy opening strains of the title song.

Thanks to all who submitted films and to all who voted.

-maybe we should bring an immense bowl of Jell-O for the snack table!

What's nice is this is kind of a TV standard, and this gives people a chance to see it as it was meant to be seen: large screen, on film and uninterrupted. Psycho was great for basically the same reason. It's like having a familiar meal, just cooked with all the right ingredients.
Posted by Louis Franchetti (Member # 2035) on October 07, 2019, 11:15 AM:
Well put Steve
