Thanks for that. I had already obtained a quote in the UK - where the films are - and that was >GBP400.
I left the films in UK on the understanding a friend could bring them over as and when I found somewhere cheaper here, but that now seems a remote possibility!
I looked at the Amazon link you kindly included but the m/c on offer doesn't hold any reels > 5".
Mine vary from 3" (holding 50ft of film), to about 8" or 9" (holding 300ft to 400ft of film).
Unfortunately I don't have any m/c to transfer the big reels on to smaller ones either!
I am still hopeful someone will come up with other alternative solutions.
I worry that the cine films will deteriorate as they go back between 45 to 55 years in age; apart from the fact I would dearly like to watch them again as they contain many happy family and holiday records.
Also, regrettably, the cine projector I had has been disposed of by an overzealous relative when sorting out her loft space! Aaagh!!
