Here’s a look at the EIKI 16mm projector we just set up –it replaces one that is in need of repair. The large square in front of it is our viewing box, a sort of mini movie screen. When a film is running, the picture appears on the outward facing side.



Motion Pictures: Krasker on the Move

When Krasker moved to Mugar Library we took THOUSANDS of 16mm films with us! For many years Krasker ran a rental service, supplying schools across the United States with educational films. While many of the reels have grown brittle and red-tinted with age, current BU students, staff and faculty  can view most of our 16mm collection at our facility. (Note: 16mm titles are for research purposes only and are not available for classroom delivery.)

An artistic snap of our 16mm films, shortly after arriving at Mugar.
