  • It has been such a long time since I was last in a position to contribute to this thread. My 16mm projectors both developed problems at the same time, which must be in excess of 2 years ago. Thus I stuck to my super 8 collection. However, a trip to Kevin Brown in Nottingham for a full overhaul has proved very beneficial.So tonight, I screened films that have been in my possession most of that time but never watched.

    It kicked off with an episode from Sgt.Bilko starring Phil Silvers entitled "Bilko's Casino"

    Then...... the one I have been itching to watch for soooooo long......

    Close Encounters of The Third Kind - The Special Edition. A flat print bought from a fellow forum member via Ebay AGES ago. Still very good colour with moderate scratching. Extremely watchable and very enjoyable.

    .........There will be more 16mm nights coming up as I have a lot more to watch. So "watch this space" !!!!

    • That’s a cool title to have Melvin! My dad came over today and we screened some 16mm. Cartoons were Rebel Rabbit (Bugs) 11th Hour (Superman) and The Lone Star State then the feature Hang ‘em High. It was faded but still had some color…clean print and great movie. I haven’t watched much 16mm lately either so it was nice.

            • 7 minute promo for Bugsy Malone. Triva Stood on set watching Jodie deliver her lines followed by a hand full of cream in the face. Seems a long time ago 1975....

              Been servicing my 16mm projectors and sorting some LPP features so watched Outlaw Josey Wales. Lovely colour as well.
              Working thru the 80's features next so plenty of screen time to get in.

              • Finished what turned out to be something of a rebuild on the 16mm projector so a rather large soak test. (Test run)

                Watched Bugsy Malone mainly to see if I had as much hair as I did in 1974 on the filming set. Bitter disappointment 😉

                A new nostalgia 1600ft reel assembled as a bit of a local group effort with fellow collectors which will be loaned during the year, a good way to spread the cost of film.

                • Another night up in the Man Cave with the bigger gauge.

                  Tonight's feast....


                  Raslin Rockets - 1x 300' - An old style wrestling bout in the style of the British World of Sport as opposed to WWF. However, the bout was from possibly the 1960's, was black and white and was staged, strangely enough, in a certain seaside town in New Jersey by the name of Wildwood. I seem to have heard of that place from somewhere!

                  Penny Lane - 1x 150' - The Beatles film made to go with the song. The one where they are on horses and have a tea party in a field.

                  Casablanca - 1x 2200', 1x 1600' - Humphrey and co. Say no more...... except this was my first screening of my 16mm copy since purchase. Ran quite nicely. The eagle eyed amongst you will realize I now have a copy of this on both 16mm and Super 8mm. To answer your next question.... NO!.... neither one for sale!

                  .

                  • That's cool, Melvin!

                    Wildwood seems to have hosted more than it's share of 16mm films. We've seen at least two at CineSea. The most recent was a week ago tonight. It was some Chamber of Commerce film about why you should bring your family to Wildwood for next Summer's Vacation. It's classic 1960s stuff: happy looking families arriving in immense station wagons and splashing in the blue surf. Dad and junior go fishing on a party boat and everyone meets later for a lobster dinner. You look at it with modern eyes and you wonder if life was ever really that perfect!

                    I have one that arrived from a completely unexpected direction. I E-bayed a Super-8 Blackhawk railroad film about the Budd Rail Diesel Car in the 1950s. One of the lines they showed these operating on was the Pennsylvania-Reading Seshore Lines branch to Cape May. The second to last stop was called "Wildwood Junction".

                    -up until the moment I first projected this, I had no idea that Wildwood had ever had railroads.

                    • SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS in Cinemascope… Sadly on the red side but beautiful, funny and entertaining anyway.

                      • The Blues Brothers, A new addition, requires a little bit of work and in a few days will be all joined up on two 2000ft reels. Great colours and a modern,(1980) musical made for the big screen. I thought this was going to be a film to return to sender but its turned out alright on the night.
