Something else to think about - I had about an hour of 8mm movies transferred to DVD by a guy in Chicago - he did a great job, and was much less expensive than all the other places I checked...  quick turnaround too.  He did color correction and image restoration that simply playing them on an 8mm projector won't do.

having the old film put onto VHS or DVD is probably the best option.  sure, there's a little nostalgia to actually showing them with a projector, but it's important to consider the age of that film.  it does weaken over time and every run on a projector runs the chance of breaking the strip.  just something to keep in mind...
