We show 2-5 16mm a year. We usually borrow a projector with Xenon bulb. WE priced a couple at +\- 1000.00. What does anyone else do? What do you reccomend?

We want a 16mm to show 42 Up but the projector rental for one week is $700-$1,000. That's more than we would make on the film. As you pointed out, I could buy a 16mm projector for $1,000. We are still trying to work it out.

We have a 1400W Kodak Eastman 25B 16mm projector that we use for the occasional 16mm movie. It used to be a telecine projector and it is a wonderful machine to operate. The only problem is we only have one projector and we have to stop the movie to make reel changes. Most of the time we only use it for school groups and the kids don't care, they're just happy to be out of class


Elmo makes some really nice slot-loading xenon projectors that I've used before. They're small and portable and work great. You may want to get two projectors with a changeover control box so you don't have to stop the show. My guess is they are around $800-$900 each but don't quote me on that

That's the film we just finished last night. Needs promotion but it's really good work. Anyway: we borrowed a projector: not the huge professional model that Boston Light and Sound had for +\- 1000.00 per week! We borrowed it from a non competing art house about 50 miles awayt... also many AV offices of local colleges have them kicking around too. I real problem was the lens and it took us trying 3-4 to get it right. The Xenon/ or the equiv arc bulb type projector is really important for throw and brightness. If you show the film for a week it's nice to buy a new bulb +\- 100.00.

Try checking on EBay. Most of the 16mm projectors are for home use but the occasional xenon does show up.

A criteria I left out is that it has to move between our three screens. We only play 16 4-6 times a year so.... I've got a bid in on a 16mm 1568 Bell and Howell so we'll see,

Mike:

The 1568 is an excellent machine, but there are TWO versions of it. You'll need to find out if it's a 1568-A or a 1568-B. An "A" model will just say 1568 on the nameplate. A "B" model will actually say 1568-B on the namewplate. The "B" model has some improvements like a multimedia connector and a shaft encoder. These are useful for speed control or sync interlock.
