Cool find! Just be careful, as I’ve heard that nitrate film can spontaneously combust. Back in the old days, one of the major studios lost a ton of silent films due to that. It seems like that’s only likely to combust if the film is decomposing, but I’d take precautions just the same.

Hope that helps! 😃
