I can see I have a lot of work ahead of me in future.
Still feel a bit sad I have had to abandon my dedicated Cinema Room project
at my current address though. Still never mind I am sure I will think of something
once I have settled in at my new home.

I hope it all works out for you David.

I'm sure 9119 will be taking pride in place in no time at all!

Very soon now a large gaping hole known as the local rubbish tip will be filling up with
some 35mm Films and a Projector. Hahaha !!!

What on earth is happening now David, I thought you'd arranged the building of a shelter.

Was it only Foster who buys 35mm? Maybe Sheard buys them?

Hugh I cant possibly take them all with me.
Some of them are showing signs of buckle and colour fading. So not worth saving i have
to report.
I have now found some "odd reel" parts from E.T. stored away also hundreds of trailers
and advert tags.
The trouble is the clock is now ticking against me and i really don't have much time left
to sort it all out as i have other items such as Hi-Fi equipment , cassette tapes, books and
magazines to clear out too.
I am now at that moment where i wish i never collected so much stuff over the past 45 years.

I am very sad for you David, it must be heart breaking for you, I still would never consider landfill for any film or projectors, a
terrible shame.

David,you must have a real problem,but you are now I feel putting into perspective what most of know deep down know
......."we have a problem..."great fun and totally engrossing and an enjoyable sometimes expensive hobby,but come the time what the hell do you do with it all.
I think we touched on the subject before,and personally I know how you feel I keep finding this and that bought and forgotten and no one wants it or its gone "bad".good luck sorting maybe this is a lesson for us all.

I have got to say, I'd have gotten permission from whom ever owned nearby land, I'd have put the films in plastic sacks, including
any projectors, until proper shelter, even a Dutch Barn routine, we should never junk film, unless it's nitrate and far gone. A sad time, and I'll say it, a fucking tragedy David, surely your movies deserved better than this. Correct me, but how many prints are we speaking of, I "see" film as 16mm, but you lads in 35mm, it is a very different ball game in volume, I'm thinking a big garden shed, would it have
accommodated these films?
