GE great OFU logoThe Oscar Film Unit

OFU showed a recent feature film, every week in Lecture Theatre D, which I believe sat about 320. There were four screenings, two on Sunday evening and two on Monday evening. The films were hired in 16mm format, we spliced them together onto a single reel and they were projected using one of two full size Xenon arc cinema projectors.
In 1974 the charge for a season ticket was £1 (for 10 films)

Did you know that OFU also made films?
Robert Lenk should take most of the blame. The frames below were taken from a deeply moving interruption of the Cat Stevens song.
