Time to enjoy what I have (which I do anyway)

It's getting out of hand in my opinion.

but what do you do?
do we think we are sitting on small fortunes which are going up in value, or,,,,
do we start to sell and get out before it turns the other way and they become worthless?
the bubble could burst any time. be a bit upsetting for those who spent a grand on a title.

I don't think you can ever buy cine film as an investment Tom. It is something you pay the money you do because YOU think it's worth that amount to you.

This may in the long term mean to you and you alone, but that's not a reason to panic buy or indeed panic sell.

Collectors come and go for lots of different reasons, but just like any quality product that becomes scarce, to those that truly value such items, they will pay whatever they can afford to get their hands on them.
Therefore until such time there is absolutely no interest in film because there are hardly any films left with any colour in them, or until such time there are hardly any working projectors left to use them on, I don't see the situation changing much...for better or for worse, depending which side of the fence you're sat on.

I don't foresee any bursting bubbles overnight personally.

Beauty & The Beast has yet to sell at this price lets remember. Anyone can chance their arm, getting what THEY think it's worth, is a completely different matter!

I will not sell my prints even if prices has gone up. I love my films and will enjoy them until death or bodily functions demise. Hope even then either my son or my wife would help me watch films. Just gonna be difficult buying new films. I was lucky to find one I have been searching for in the mail today, Voyage to the Bortom of the Sea at 13 GBP, which wasn't too bad. Original box and B colours

i was playing a little devils advocate there but your right Andy films are not an investment.there not quite that valuable, I have enjoyed a little flutter with some of our films and it has allowed me to to replace a number of films with treble the number I sold which is a plus. Vidar, I too will be keeping my collection of films and projectors until such time I am too old to look after it all. I,my still looking for a few titles but am also just about to run "the other type of projection" along side my cine.
I will also continue towelling a few to buy a lot more hopefully.

Good luck with the "duel" projection venture Tom. It's great to be able to project any title you desire, one way or another.
Film is what we'd all prefer, but as time goes by, we have to seek an alternative if you love watching your films on a big screen.
There are simply too many good films made since the late 90's to completely discard the alternative presentation method.

Very True, starting with the Daniel Craig Bond films, especially Skyfall.

An investment is when you buy something with the intention of selling it later at a higher price; I wonder 10 years from now, what prices these films will reach, will they have gone up or down? I never thought of my films as an investment, I considered myself lucky to own copies of the films, and never had any thoughts of selling. It would be nice, should the time come, when, for one reason or another, we are forced to sell up, that we could get a decent return on our outlay. I have wasted a fortune on 16mm cameras; £450 for a Bolex, that you could probably pick up on Ebay for £50, or £275 for a Krasnogorsk 3; plus 5 Bell & Howell filmos. The problem being that film is too expensive to shoot. The last time I shot a roll of 16mm film it cost me about £100 for 4 minutes of film. I could get a decent feature for that, possibly 2.

If you sell privately, dealers don't want to pay much; I recently sold over 400 vinyl records and albums, mostly 50s, with Original albums by Buddy Holly, and Bill Haley. I struggled to get just over £400 from a dealer. I could probably have got a good price selling on Ebay, but it was a lot of titles, and I thought it could be a lot of hassle; needing to buy special packing material to stop album covers getting bent. It was simpler just to shift the lot in one go.

That's a very sad tale there Dave. You must have had some collection there!

I never looked on collecting films a an investment, just pure enjoyment of screening them on the bigger screen at home. I still get a thrill when projecting even over 35 years later.

For some reason putting those round silver things in is not the same. I even tried scratching one to get a more film look, they stop working. Unlike film.
