Re-live your 8mm cine film memories at Wednesfield’s new film club

WV11 contributor Jerome Turner is hosting a special evening which will allow local residents to re-live their 8mm cine film memories.

Here’s more info on the event from Jerome:

8mm Cine Club is a social event. Dig out your old 8mm cine films, bring them along and we’ll play them on our projector over a cup of tea and cake.

If you’re unsure of the kind of films we can play, they’ll look like the image below. They’re typically three minutes long, on small reels. I also think my projector is capable of playing either 8mm or Super 8 films. We will try and play as many reels as possible, based on time available (8pm-9.30pm), number of visitors, and the projector holding out.

The event takes place in the Lounge room at Wednesfield Library & Community Centre on Well Lane on Thursday 4th October at 8pm.

If the Community Centre outer door is shut, press the buzzer. Otherwise come in through the main doors, take the stairs up to the first floor and you’ll find the lounge at the top of the stairs.

Attendees can turn up on a ‘drop in’ basis, no need to stay for the whole event, and there’s no specific agenda, other than watching films, chatting, tea and cake. There will be a small charge for tea or cake, but donations to cover costs will be welcome on the day, at your discretion.

Check out the 8mm Cine Club website here.

Please note: 8mm Cine Club can not be held responsible for the safety of your reels. The projector is pretty stable but anyone who has used an 8mm projector before will know that they can occasionally cause damage to films.
