( 9.5mm )


The UK Group 9.5 - the club for ninefive enthusiasts, was formed a few years after the main business supporting the 9.5mm home movie film gauge in the UK - Pathescope (Great Britain) Ltd., went into receivership. (In fact a reformed Pathescope (London) Ltd continued for another four years supplying 9.5mm equipment and filmstock).

Once the Group 9.5 Club was formed, (way back in 1962 by the late Larry Pearce and the late Paul van Someren), publication of a magazine began and regular meetings were held. Soon the meeting grew to an Annual Get-Together which included a 9.5mm amateur film competition.

I recall the original Get-Togethers were held at Kensington Library, then the earlier annual Get-Togethers were held at Chiswick Town Hall; later with rising costs and organisational problems at that venue (couldn't use the car-park, etc!), the event moved to the Harpenden Public Halls at Southdown Road, Harpenden, Herts which gave a lower cost, easy parking and good facilities. As I compile these pages, hopefully the event will continue for a few more years, whilst some fit and healthy committe members continue to organise it and cine enthusiasts support the day. (I must emphasise that these Get-Togethers include all aspects of film in general - it's only the auction that is currently limited to 9.5mm items)

These reports are mostly culled from the Group 9.5 club magazine, originally "The 9.5 Review", now just known as "9.5". Generally I have just scanned relevant pages and photographs. Already there are a good number listed below, I plan to add more years as I access the relevant magazine issues. Hopefullly I shall credit the writers and photographers, but please accept my apologies if I leave a name out (updates are easily done with computers!)
