About 75 film projectors can be found in the Film Archive, among which several Magic Lanterns. The eldest of film projectors—which are the Magic Lanterns—date back from the nineteenth century. The majority are 8mm or super8 projectors, but there are 9,5mm, 16mm, and 35mm projectors as well. Part of the collection is still operational and part of it will be repaired in the future.
Part of the film projectors can be seen online at the Digital Collections of the University Library Groningen
Recently a Magic Lantern with its accessory collection of glass plates was donated to the archive by the relatives of ‘Grandpa Verbeek.’ On the site http://www.opaverbeek.nl/ are also scans of the glass plates visible.
