8MM - SUPER-8 - 16MM
pages were updated on April 7, 2014
following pages offer a large selection of vintage movies in
8mm, Super-8 and 16mm film formats;
sound and silent features, cartoons and short subjects. You will find classic full
length features and theatrical short subjects, as well as commercial package films sold to
the home market such as the popular Castle
Films and Blackhawk Films. Any
films being in the original packaging or boxes will be indicated with (OB) and in
some cases illustrations will be shown. I plan to update these pages regularly, including
changing the images, so check back often. Click the links at the bottom of the page or
above for films in the formats you want. I do not sell any tapes or DVD, just films.
All films are for
private home viewing only. There are no public performance rights given.
I do not have any
unexposed film to use in movie cameras.
Please note that I
cannot accept films returned because they can't run or are damaged because of your
projector. All films are inspected and are in excellent running condition when they are
shipped to you. Please make sure you have a properly running projector and know how to use
it. Thanks very much!

great page by Paul Ivester:
Identifying Color Movie Film Stocks
of the films offered on the pages linked below are Like New or in Near Mint condition. As
such, especially with black and white film, they can be very dry. If they are not
lubricated, depending on your projector, they can not slip properly when going through the
gate and may clatter or the image may even jitter. All films, especially new condition or
green prints, need to be lubricated for optimum performance. On my LINKS page you can go to
URBANSKI FILM & VIDEO to buy Filmrenew or FILM-TECH to buy FilmGuard to clean and
protect your prints. After the film cleaner has completely cleaned off with a dry cotton
cloth, it would also be a good idea to polish and lubricate them with a silicone treated
cloth. I have some flannel silicone treated cloths on my SUPPLIES page. Dirt can build
up on the guide rails that can also cause this problem. You must always keep the film gate
and pressure pad of your projector clean and polished. I clean my film gates after every
reel run. I saturate a Q-tip with Goo Gone or Filmrenew to scrub off any hard dirt.
in 8mm and Super-8/Single-8 Film:
film was introduced in 1965 as an improvement over regular 8mm, although 8mm film
continued to be used even up to today. Super-8 film features smaller sprocket holes and a
smaller space in between the frames. The result is a 50 percent larger frame area. The
charts below show you the difference between 8mm and super-8 film.
