Craig was our w/o bar manager, and he selected a "new" flick to be shown every Saturday night (and also on Wednesdays after dark). These were our more formal movie nights. The theory at least was to space out the new movies through the winter.After a film had been "premiered" it was put on the shelf and available for viewing at any time.
In addition to the rented stuff, we had a small collection of strange and unusual footage left over from the Navy days at old pole. We often picked one of these for a short before the main flick. We had a complete collection of "Victory at Sea," a few old newsreels, and some training films including the original 1955 atomic bomb cold war stuff.The old Navy-vintage movie projectors that we had were rather finicky (during the winter I tried to improve their performance without too much success). We ordered two new ones, and fortunately they just barely showed up in time to get to us before closing flight. The spare bulbs did not. So every so often in the midst of a show we would end up with an unscheduled intermission while Jerry and the ET group rewired one of the spare slide projector bulbs to fit.
