Enjoying in the new projector: "The Apartment" (1960)

A week ago my dad arrived home saying he just needed to have a projector. We got one and, guys, it's awesome! I mean, it's really like going to the movies, but in your living room. I thought that maybe the image wouldn't be great, but it's perfect.

We first saw The Beauty and the Beast (by the way, did you know that the diamond edition or gold or whatever includes Human Again a song that was cut in the original version??...for a Disney VHS girl like me, it was quite a surprise), then The Barefoot Contessa (like I said over Twitter, ironically Bogie never looked shorter :) ) and today I picked The Apartment. Take a look:




I was watching from that angle because it's chilly in Chile and I needed to be close to the chimney. I would write a review of the movie but I won't because everybody knows it and loves it and I couldn't possibly say something new...well, maybe I could but I bombarded you with reviews this week (5 here and 5 more here) and I don't want you to hate me :)

The important thing is that if you're thinking in buying a new device to watch movies, I really recommend a projector. Or you all could visit me and we could watch some classics. You bring the pop corn (and don't forget your coat).

  1. My family recently got one just like that for Christmas and we use it loads! We've used it for birthday parties twice! Have fun with it, you can see so much more in the films when they're that big, can't you :-)

  2. Oh wow! That looks amazing! As someone who watches virtually all of her films on her laptop, I would absolutely LOVE to have a projector! However, I think may have to wait until I have my own house ;D

  3. You lucky duck! That would be so awesome to watch movies on the big screen right in your own house!

    P.S. It always throws me for a minute when you talk about the weather, since we live in different hemispheres. I was like "cold, what? It's sweltering here!". Haha. :P

  5. This is really neat! When you first mentioned a projector, at first I imagined an old-fashioned 16mm projector like some people had when I was young. I'd never seen a projector like the one at your link before! So you just pop in a DVD? That looks really neat. Enjoy!

    Best wishes,
    Laura

  10. Thank you, I'm really having a blast with it, it's very cool. I haven't seen anything from Vivien or Laurence with it yet, maybe I should remedy that. Oh, and if you have the opportunity to get one, don't hesitate. Thanks for the feedback, Kendra :)

  11. LOL, yeah, I thought about the old ones when I first heard "projector", too! Sure, you can connect to the new ones your DVD, or your laptop (this is how I watch the movies), or your cameras, or your cable box...Thanks for visiting my site, Laura!

  14. Ah, Clara, if only I could afford the air fare, I would cheerfully fly to Chile and watch movies with you on a real (reel? :-)) film projector as the movie gods intended! :-) Enjoy it, you lucky girl!
