    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Just when I thought I knew everything about a director, cinematographer or actor; just when I thought I've seen every movie made; just when I thought I've enjoyed enough to no longer need any more; along comes HTF with another review and another contagious discussion; then damn, another order...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Why do I own so many movies? Hopefully, I'll get closer to that answer after the next 100 purchases.;)

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Dick and Thomas T have sparked a few nostalgic memories. The now demolished single-screen theater of my small town enjoyed a long history. 2 different movies per week; Sun-Tues and Wed-Sat. One and two week bookings for a single film were rare. But, in this theater's entire 57 year history there...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Positive contributions made by those now gone becomes all the more meaningful when continued on; by those still present.

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    I'm now inspired to run a BD and Breakfast. Maybe I'll name it The 4Korners Inn. One guest room w/ one custom selected viewing upon a projected 120" screen. All proceeds shall go to every licensee towards future restorations. Ah, yes, another collection of day-dreams; ongoing and never ending...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Wished I had some shelves like TJPC for my collection. But, then again, if I did have shelves like those then I would be compelled to collect even more.:) I wonder if others could contribute "attachment" photos of additional designs and options, too.:cool:

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Such a great story that sparks the imagination. My goodness, so many scenarios, had your birth occurred at the theater, itself. BTW, thanks for reminding me about Scholastic Book Services; as my collection of those handy little paperbacks were also just as enriching as my stack of 8mm Castle...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Yesterday, I chanced upon this newly established thread as hosted by Moderator Mike Frezon. I focused mainly on the question at hand, while delving deeper into the night and morning as to that personal reason of "why". By the mid-afternoon, I delved back in, again; yet this time it was down a...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Back in the day, when I was 13 years old, I wrote a letter to United Artists. At that time, I was seeking the ownership of my first full-length film. I had asked them if it would be possible to generate a Color Super 8 Magnetic Sound print of "Fiddler on the Roof". My request had also...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Hopefully, I am not veering too far off topic, but this thread has also served my recollections of when I first began to collect films in an even earlier format. My very first reels of film had come out of a group known as Castle Films. If memory serves me correctly, these silent 8mm reels had...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Why does a gourmet have so many utensils? Why does a pianist have so many scores? Why does an artist have so many brushes? Why does an ocean have so many fish? Why does a sky insist on so many stars? Our love for film is infinite; and our collections are the evidence of that truth.
