GROUP 9.5
THE UK NINE - FIVE CLUB
( 9.5mm )


3RD
ANNUAL
GET-TOGETHER
KENSINGTON CENTRAL LIBRARY
SATURDAY 7TH NOVEMBER 1964


The full reports from the Group 9.5 club magazine "The 9.5 Review" December 1964 - January 1965

These early annual meetings were just known as 'Get-Togethers' and were held at the Kensington Central Library. Looking back, the tickets were just 6/6d each - that's about 32.5p these days! Plus the price then included a light buffet of rolls, cakes and tea! However I guess at the time I was earning under 1000 a year, as a graduate trainee. The little Cinetgel 9.5mm projector cost around 40, whilst a Heurtier HSM trigauge machine clocked in at over 200 (silent) and 470 (optical/magnetic). Times have changed!

Sadly, illustrations in magazines cost real money then, so we don't usually have any photos of these earlier events.

The new 9.5mm optical sound projector (converted from 16mm ) mentioned above, and available from LGP (Cine) was the "Elew" from Poland I think. Does anyone stlll have one of these I wonder?
