VINTAGE 8MM - SUPER-8
16MM MOVIE FILMS

These pages were updated on October 13, 2014


The 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, cleaned 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! *

Guide to Identifying Color Movie Film Stocks

Many 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.


Difference in 8mm and Super-8/Single-8 Film:

Super 8mm 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.
