I might, though I did see the films on 70mm last they were shown. I am also dependent on someone driving, as my eyesight is so poor I had to give up my drivers license.

That is very saddening to hear Vidar, that you have been forced to surrender your driving license while still relatively very very young yet.
I do hope your good lady or other members of your family provide you still with a good level of mobility.

I have a friend who also likes the meetings, so usually get to these (not missed one since I joined) ... but these films I am not sure

Thanks for your empathy, eyesight is a bitch to lose. I am closing in on not being able to see film well enough. Considering moving the screen a bit closer, but means projectors need more distance too. I consider dropping a lot of films, as space is a huge problem too. But the damn collector in me is like a two year old and screams They are mine, mine, mine

Vidar, if it all brings you pleasure, no matter how small you are forced to view them all, then its worth it to you!

I've moved all of mine out of the house now, it's costly to do so, but to me it is worth it as I love the films I have, watch most very very frequently and I intend only purchasing more quite infrequently from here on overall.
It's more important to me now, to enjoy the tidy organized library that it has now become rather than using the money to keep adding more and more.
I will add, but only for the the titles I really really want.

Yes, for now it won't be Highlander, Robin Hood, Alien, Ghostbusters, Flash Gordon and those kind of films, I do have a lot of not so interesting (like French movies, I like to understand what is being said, as text is more difficult to read now)

I see what I can do, will continue to enjoy my L&H's and blockbuster 80's for as long as my eyes permit
