In 2012 we returned to Ealing - St. Benedicts Independent Day School just a ten minute walk from Ealing Broadway tube. Below is the pre-10am queue snapped by Mark Williams.
Some of the dealers in attendance on the big day:-
Buckingham Film & Video Services
Classic Home Cinema
Gordon Ogbourne (16mm spares etc)
Guy Thomas & the Bournemouth Contingent
Roger Godden & Co
John Wolthus (Dutch Cinerama Specialist)
Bruce Latham & Trevor Dawe (as seen in Graham Sinden's photo above)
The Cinema Museum
PLUS an extra large Bring & Buy area.
More dealers than any other film collecting event in the UK.
Anyone still interested in new Super 8 releases need look no further than Classic Home Cinema. Classic can be contacted via the Super 8 Links page on this site.
We had university students making a documentary on the day and the organizers and many attendees were interviewed on camera.
35mm, 16mm and Super 8 projectors were all utilized for another set of ambitious shows on the 24ft CinemaScope screen.
The 35mm Spectra projector from China has a xenon lamp source, the 16mm Bell & Howell a Gemini 300 Arc lamp and the Elmo
GS1200 has the amazing HTI lamp conversion that has been wowing audiences since Bill Parsons (contactable via the
Super 8 Links page of this site) carried out the conversion in 2003.
Enthusiastic collector Steven Sigel again came over from the US and was caught on camera above.
