In which Silmara & I visit Cogg's Vintage & Collectibles in Burnaby, British Columbia. With owner Shaun Taylor's expert help, we buy a lovely Bell & Howell Super 8 mm film projector, along with our first movie, "The Rounders" - a Charlie Chaplin one-reeler from 1914.
We're keen to expand our collection, so if you have any super 8 movies (or a Super 8 movie camera, for that matter) lying around the attic or basement that you'd like to donate to our Projection Project, we'll be happy to take them off your hands!
2014 Update: unfortunately, Shaun has closed Coggs and moved his family to the east coast. Thus, another unique business along that stretch of East Hastings street is gone (Burnaby Heights, which also lost the nearby Dolphin Theatre recently). The silver lining? Before moving, Shaun gave Silmara and I his shop's entire collection of super 8 films!
