I can also remember that there might be a skip or a point where someone had to come in and fix or rewind the reel to get it going. They were played on projectors and the film would unwind as it was played and was rewound on another reel.
When I was a kid it was a big deal to go to a movie get popcorn and a soda and spend a few hours watching a larger then life movie. This was often a Friday night out for my family and we would look forward to it all week.
Cartoons were often a favorite when we were young such as this one for sale that includes Secret Squirrel, Sqiddly Diddly and Winsome Witch. Do you remember these cartoons?
My Little Margie was also a great show and sure does bring back some memories.
Do you remember these vintage film reels?
