( 9.5mm )

The 9.5mm movie film gauge, introduced in 1922 in France by Pathé-Baby, part of the then giant Pathé-Frères group,
arrived in the UK the following year and was effectively the first home movie film size.

Just a few pages for our UK 9.5mm film club - 'GROUP 9.5' - makes it easier to update than editing individual web-pages!
If you are interested in the 9.5mm film gauge - films/equipment, then have a read & maybe come to a film event or even join!

Also included are reports for many of our Annual Show & Get-Togethers
plus those from the 9.5 International Festivals.

We have even begun scanning all of the issues of the magazine and will eventually make all available online.

With a little help from YouTube, a few 9.5mm or 9.5mm related films are now here to view.

Our UK Group 9.5 Club was formed, way back in 1962 by the late Larry Pearce and the late Paul Van Someren with a view to provide a future for the Pathé 9.5mm home movie film gauge once commercial backing dissapeared. Publication of a magazine began and regular meetings were held. Weekly meetings began in August 1962 at Alperton, North London, run by the late Larry Pearce who lived nearby. Soon the meeting grew to an Annual Get-Together which later included a 9.5mm amateur film competition. A number of local sections sprang up and the London Section still exists albeit informally.


Here's that man again - Charles Pathé! He started it all!
