Geoff Wheeler's Big Screen Time sadly ceased a few years ago but now a new BIG SCREEN TIME has been started at Croxley Green with Mr. Wheeler's blessing. He was also there for this inaugural event too which gave it that real feeling of authenticity.
Mark Norton compiled the Super 8 'Scope Show using an Elmo GS1200 modified with an HID lamp conversion. Brighter than a standard Xenon but somewhat below that of the more expensive - and extremely rare - HTI conversion.
Simon McConway compiled an excellent show and in the other 'cinema' 9.5mm films were screened by David Wyatt in
which some 28mm was also screened. Later Adrian Winchester presented a talk on Scopitone 16mm films with entertaining
examples, some of which were of outstanding quality.
