Vintage Projector Help!!!

I'm wanting to buy a vintage 16mm projector but can't find the right one for me. I want one that displays a large picture so I can have a nice old movie night with my family. Which projectors have a large display. Thanks in advance!

Paul's Basic Guide to 16mm Projectors

first hit on google and in the first paragraph or so says these babies use a bulb that burns 750-1000 watts! The whole family would be sweating bullets in no time haha!

We had an 8mm projector when I was a kid. I'm not sure what you mean by large display. If you wanted a bigger picture you just move the projector away from the screen until it fit right IIRC.
