    I have just a meeting with a delightful man who telephoned me out of the blue to see if I was interested in buying a secondhand Cine 8 projector. Every thing sounded right, he had only used it for viewing film at home and it was projected onto an 8ft wide screen in his cinema. His wife said it was ugly and it needed to go so he was looking to sell it cheap and quick.

    I'm not sure who was most disapointed. What he turned up with was a film projector (circa 1950's) for showing 8mm film. how I kept a straight face when he asked me how much it was worth I don't know.

    But true to his word it was a Cine 8 projector!

    A cool bit of kit for a dedicated room, be a great ornament!
    How much was he asking for it? I could be interested!

    No, honestly, I really could if it was a bargain!

    I have a Cine 8 projector in my garage and a bunch of 1970's films to go with it. Ok if you don't mind the clacking of the thing as it projects.
