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


4TH
ANNUAL
GET-TOGETHER
KENSINGTON CENTRAL LIBRARY
SATURDAY 23RD NOVEMBER 1965


The full report from the Group 9.5 club magazine "The 9.5 Review" Autumn 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.

Note in the Group 9.5mm magazine "The 9.5 Review" - Autumn 1965

The indefatical Larry Pearce who traded as LGP (Cine) actually filmed the Get-Together and released a '1 reel' 300ft 9.5mm film of the event. The film was also made available in 16mm. I am still looking for a copy. Does anyone stlll have one of these I wonder?
