I'ts one place i must visit one day, its the other end of the country for us.
I never made it to Derann so i dont want to make that mistake again.Well done Del. Did you get anything you were looking for in particular?
I last visited Phil and his wife Denise at the old shop in Cleethorpes when I went down to pick
up some film equipment and films a couple of years ago.
They made us very welcome and I got to see his Home Cinema and his own collection
at his house. I returned to Aberdeen with some "freebies" including a 16mm Elf Projector and films.
Come with me one day before too long Tom. I will come and pick you up! Ha ha.
Seriously though, it's something we all should try and do while we all still can.
The alarming and saddening news from Hugh earlier today regarding Barry Littlechild, tells us all...time waits for no man!!
"C'Mon Baggy, Get With The Beat"
Wasn't too sure what to expect Tom, I had heard Phil had just bought a mass of new stuff but WOW when I got there it was like visiting Derann there was films everywhere, I only had so much cash on me so just picked up a Dracula Prince Of Darkness feature plus a Once Upon A Mouse 600' and 3 ads reels, all of them looked mint and all looked to have good colour, can't fault it, Phil also chucked me in 3 free 400''s, think they look a bit pink but good for spools if nothing else, it's the thought I always think, top man. It won't be the last time I visit, that's for sure
Might just have to go next week. I'll see if I can get an mp's pay packet (brown envelope) with a letter from Panama. If Phil has some nice stuff I'll buy something.
I still love the smell of film in the morning
