Very Quiet Today.

Today so far it has been mostly very quiet on this forum. Are you all projecting some films ?
Or is it because its Black Friday ?

I've posted a little bit today David, but yes, for me personally I've been enjoying a few films again on the resurrected screen for the first time in months.

It is a pity though that not too many members post on here in general. We need plenty of different types of topics to keep this forum vibrant and interesting to our readers, so come on everyone, support you're forum please.

Enjoy your music David.

Hi Lads, never fear Scott is here, to bore you all to death yet again. I'm just in hand taking some screen shots, Will put them up shortly, and don't call me shortly, to quote "Airplane".

Hi Andrew. glad you've done with the decorating, bloody awful task, I would rather plaster a wall than paper it. Emulsion fine, but
the hardest bit is moving stuff about, as you know. Anyway, glad you can show your films as they should be seen, well done that man.
David, just you take it easy, never mind the Prog Rock Freak outs, or the piss ups you might be invited to, take it easy, no lifting
those heavy projectors, My benefactor who left me a clutch of stuff, was ninety odd, his son laid down it was lifting those machines
about that did it, ( his demise ) so don't go following suit, the unmentionables are a boon in such times, indeed, I have just bought the
US TV show "The Invaders" with Roy Thinnes, super entertainment, no disrespect to our American friends, but they did speak a lot
clearer than the shows now, apart from better photography, as the older shows have. Anyway David, please look after yourself, take
things very easily, no thinking you can get away with a lift, ask someone first, please.

Those prices are unbelievable Vidar!! Just incredible what you get your hands on for very little money! Well done that man!!

Thanks Hugh, and yes you are sooooo correct about the amount of work involved.

Been around the divided room at least 5 times.Stripping, Plastering, lining paper, top paper then finally emulsioning two thirds of it all!

That's quite besides all the hassles of taking radiators off three times and all the mither of microbore pipework! So very glad my work is done now here...for a couple of weeks at the very least. Ha ha.

There's a man who takes it seriously, a fanatic even, well done though, it's a thankless task at best, great you can show
your films as they should be seen, way to go Andrew. Also very sorry to here of your upsets through the year, I'm sure
members here are in sympathy too. Look after yourself and Family.

We still await the worse of it Hugh unfortunately. Time waits for no man, as they say.

Still we carry on, as we all have to do, but it's difficult time, that's for sure.

Andrew. Vidar gets his films for "two Black Cats and a Penny Arrow" which when I was a kid was a couple of bubble gums and
a toffee strip, total price for these little gems was 2d, or 1 pence in todays money, although with inflation it might be the price of a small sports car. Anyway, Vidar, you live in a film lovers Valhalla, we in the UK, dream of these prices, as David said a short time ago,
he paid about £40.00 for a 200' film! You lucky little devil.

Shocking news from Paris, over 100 people have died, mindless violence on Friday the 13 no coincidence, terrifying and sad, condolence's to all those innocent victims.

For those who can stand the subtitles, there is a lot more to be sold at 10-50 GBP for the 35mm films ... I hope for a list very soon
