I really love watching them, don't you? My grandma has a huge box full of old 8 mm films of me, my dad, my aunt, and dozens of other important people in my life. I simply don't get to see them nearly enough. Recently, Grandma's converted the old films over to a DVD format and that will really help preserve those treasures, but if you ask me, it's not at all the same as setting up the old Bell & Howell and watching like I did when I was a kid.
Watching these memories for me is more than visual, it's also what I smell, hear, and touch. I want to hear the motor running and the film reeling past the projector bulb, and I want to "have-to" put the beginning of the film into the slot on the projector and queue it up. I can even remember the smell of the heated machine and film, and all put together, it brings me back to 8 years old, sitting on Grandma's couch, watching movies. (and eating her fresh baked cookies, but that's a whole different blog)
If you want to relive these moments and you have some films of your own, eLightBulbs can help you find bulbs that will work with your older projectors. Treat yourself and find your projector bulb now, and get ready to jump back to your own childhood. I can't recommend it enough.
