The first 8mm projector I ever owned. My parents bought it for me around 1964 at a Super Giant in the Washington, D. C. area. This was a branch of a local grocery chain that also sold consumer products.


It was a well designed, solidly built and totally reliable machine. I can still recall the sensual pleasure of taking off the case housing, fitting on the reels and threading the film.  I used it to screen the 8mm movies I made throughout my high school years, as well as the 8mm prints of silent films I bought during that time from Blackhawk.

It was for me a magic lantern indeed.
