Send us a Bat Signal!

Use the convenient electronic form below to submit your film or equipment want list directly to The Reel Image film vault and all-purpose (bat)man cave! Steve will be in contact with you should he receive your wants. Also, please consider the (entirely optional) choice of leaving a contact phone or fax number below, as Steve is an "old school" guy who remains somewhat mystified by interwebs and emails and such!


Should he obtain your desired items, Steve can then place them on exclusive hold for 7 days before they are made available to the general public in his regular film list mailings. No obligation to buy, should you choose not to. Steve currently sells about 48% of his used films in such a reserved "want-list" manner -- so don’t be left out, contact Steve TODAY!


Of course, you can also choose to send your film/equipment requests via:

  • 24-hr./7-day VOICE Line (leave message): 937-296-9036
  • 24-hr./7-day FAX Line: 937-296-1084
  • email: thereelimage_043@yahoo.com
  • snail mail: The Reel Image • 2520 Blackhawk RD • Kettering OH 45420 USA

Please Note: Due to the overwhelming response and the resultant workload before him, Steve regrets that he must restrict his active Film & Equipment searches to subscribers of The Reel Image at this time! We apologize for any inconvenience this policy change might incur, but its implementation was necessary in order for Steve to prioritize and best serve his base of loyal subscribers.


Note: Please fill out the fields marked with an asterisk.

    In the event the cleaning company features a reputed client base then this is a clear indication it is trusted by a large amount of customers. Have a look at their internet site for clients and testimonies, read critiques on Social media marketing, forums or on their business record.

    Unbridled dedication to our moving image on what used to be known as sub standard film gauges, but with the quality being reached on 8mm today a true credit to those who had distributed before. Probably the finest cine site known to mankind!

    Dear Steve! Great website! I thought I could save your postage letters and give you my e-mail address! Above! Just keep sending those great lists to me via us mail! I had a credit of $190.00 from are "When Worlds Collide" trade! I really thought there was more then enough 16mm movies there to cover our trade but, please send me the balance of the trade and I"ll send you even MORE 16mmfilms to cover the balance! If these films do not cover the balance, please send ALL of my films back! I know sometime we run into films without titles, no ending cards, RED prints, educational films etc, Hey welcome to "FILM" collecting! Go on e-bay sometime and look up educational films in 16mm, you really will find alot of stuff at good prices there! Please send all of my films back if not satisfied! Thanks, I"d send you money but, My wife Pat just lost HER job this week! Help! Ralph Spitulski!
