Star Trek III: The Search For Spock on Video 8

Today we add a movie new to Zach Trek in a format new to Zach Trek:

Here we have a Star Trek movie on 8mm film. Video 8 was the first generation of 8mm cassettes, introduced in the 1980s. This format proved more popular for home video recording than for producing movies, as VHS was coming into prominence at the time, but several Star Trek movies were produced in the Video 8 format. This one was from 1986.

    Here's the side view.

The cassette fits into a plastic case, similar to
an audio cassette tape.

Coming Soon: Check back on Thursday as Zach Trek gains some technical data.
