25ft Double Reels

Regular-8, or double-8, spools of film were 25 feet in the double width as you see in the image below. The film is run through the camera twice to expose both edges. After developing, the lab slits it down the middle and splices it together to yield actual 8mm film as you see today. Below is a picture of how your film originally looked before developing, holes on both sides and double the width.
