Spec says it's auto-load. From what I recall of my own projector, you mount the input film reel on the front 'arm', extending it as necessary to give clearance, switch on the projector, then feed the free end of the film into the appropriate orifice at the front of the projector.
It then takes over, feeds the film through and wraps it around the take-up spool automatically. It may be necessary to cut the end of the leader on a diagonal to feed it in (not each time the film is loaded, just the first time.)
Once the film has fed through, switch on the lamp, focus and enjoy.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your response - but I cannot load the film. I have tried, and it is not catching so I don't know what I am doing wrong. It was my father's, and he passed away. I want to watch some of the movies of us together - maybe I am too emotional or nervous - I used to do it since I bought it for him, but I cannot seem to do it now. Do you have a manual ??"

    I'm afraid I don't - have you tried to Google the manual ? Failing that, there are services who can transfer cine film to DVD, which will give you a far easier way of watching these precious memories, and will also ensure that the film itself can be retained without damage. Very best of luck. Tony
