I recently acquired an old-school Revere Model 85 8mm projector, a Laurel and Hardy film, and a projector screen for under $45 together. Being a computer programmer and gamer my focus is generally on 3D graphics and technological whizbangery but film has always had a special place in my heart.
When I get it up and running, I’ll post a few pics and maybe a video. I need to find a PDF of the manual though because feeding these things film requires a PhD.
Wish me luck!
