Back from Denmark

#1 by Vidar Olavesen , Mon Aug 08, 2016 7:33 pm

After a week in lovely Denmark, I come home with some 30+ films, some which I am axious to see the quality on. Particularly looking forward to The Towering Inferno in scope, 16mm. Lots of Laurel & Hardy's and a few Westerns, both Super 8 and 16mm.

Visiting some great people in Denmark, was shown their cinemas and wow, some of them were impressive. I will ask later if I am allowed to post pictures of the biggest one. It was high ceiling, good seating and spacious with a great setup overall.

Sort some films today and tomorrow, hope to watch The Towering Inferno and post pictures (hope they're not too red)

Thanks to all for keeping the forum busy during the week. Checked in a few times, but internet was limited, so not as much as I wanted

Sounds great! Getting back from holliday with many films sounds fantastic :-) I haven't been able to pull that off yet. But who knows. We are talking about going to London next year. Maybe I can leave my wife and son behind a few hours and get to Humit & son :-)

Love to hear more about your trip when we meet again.

If you survived a car/ferry trip to Denmark, I guess a 2 hour flight to London will not be that harmful. You just have to bring someone to carry all the films you will buy.

A lot more walking needed in London I am afraid. Car all the way in Denmark. I visited a castle, I saw my limitation there. Had to drop the tour and return to car while the others went on. Umit probably hanging on to the prints (I heard that anyway)

If I happen to be off work, Id like to go to the BFCC London gig this year to hopefully see Stuart, Bill & Ian (Fingers crossed).
I could meet you near Euston Tyler if it comes off.
Only a cock stride from Umit's place!

Trouble is, in my line of work, I'd only have a definitive answer a few days maximum before i'd know for sure. It all depends how things are running there at the time.

Thank you :-) And that is a very generous offer, David. I will consider this and if my wife get the visa done in time, we might take you up on that :-) But I'd like to pay for it myself though :-)

I plan to visit Blackpool. The only problem is airline ticket prices. That weekend Manchester U will meet Arsenal i Manchester.

Andrew! Don´t you have something called vacation in the UK? As I work I Norway, I have five weeks + one senior week a year. Five weeks is a minimum in Norway and Sweden

I get one, two week break a year on the draconian annualized hours system of working now in this "modern" era of manufacturing.

I have to pay back these 4 shifts off to generate a two week holiday

This method of working for shift system employment here in GB, appears to be used universally now with some slight differences here or there.

Basically the pattern gives you rest days and your holiday entitlement already built into your shift pattern. Trouble is, the rest days and holidays are when they happen to fall, not necessarily when you'd like a holiday!

My rest days/ holidays add up to 5 weeks. At any age, there are no senior add on weeks with my company, just an additional 8hrs after certain time periods throughout your tenure with the company. The maximum extra hours allowance after 25 years service, is an extra 32 hours. So in all it is possible to generate a maximum of almost 6 weeks holiday per year, albeit in accordance to a set rigid shift pattern.

Still I'm employed, and consider myself very fortunate for that throughout my adult lifespan thus far. Many are not so fortunate sadly.

I guess I´m very lucky to live in Scandinavia. I work nightshift every second week (65 hours), so I´m off duty every second week too. If I have vacation on a workweek, I am 21 days off duty.. When I was 52 my employer closed down the business in our area. I couldn´t find a job for two years. Then I found an add for working at the Olso airport in the security. I´ve been working there since then and I guess that I will stay there until retirement. It´s far away from home, but I like my job as manning coordinator and have found new friends i the Norweigian film collectors club.

I have total and utter respect for people securing our busy Airports Mats.
These jobs must currently be harder than ever before given the state of our global affairs at this time.

Keep us all safe please Mats, your job is among the most responsible I can possibly think of in this day and age. Total respect for you my friend!

Mats, don't worry too much about the football match as most of the United fans will be travelling up from London with the Arsenal fans, Manchester will be quiet early doors
