A photograph of yours truly Grahame Newnham at a Pimlico show with Dominic De Bast a keen Group 9.5 member
over in London from Belgium for a short stay. Dominic is also a member of the French Cine-Club 9.5 de France.
The picture was taken by our then Group 9.5 Chairman Brian Everett on 10th June 2000 -
I was about to screen "Dangerous Years" on 9.5mm optical sound, using my converted Elf/Eiki projector
using the 9.5mm 2400 foot 'giant spools' I used to distribute, enabling a full 8 reel feature without a break.
Didn't I look young then, still able to lift heavy projectors etc. - pity about the grey hair though!
