Can anyone think of anything cool to do with an old 8mm projector? Answered

I have an old Elmo 8mm/Super8 projector and I was trying to think of a way to use it in a project. Any ideas?

My first thought is to find a school which might want to use it in class, like a photography club at a high school. Second thought is of all the seasoned citizens we have sitting round with memories on film but no projector. Third thought is of a D.J. that I saw years ago using a bicycle wheel with colored film taped to it. The wheel was mounted on his table, driven by a motor to spin, and behind it was...an old movie projector. The old projector was bright enough to splash color over a huge dance floor.
