Widescreen In Malaya
By Alain Dorange
Malaya was a British Federal State composed of what are today Malaysia and Singapore. Malaysia became independent on August 31st 1957 and its island (Pulau Singapura) became an independent Republic on August 9th 1965. Malaya (and also Japan as well as Hong Kong) did experience the development of the widescreen processes from Europe and the US more or less at the same time.

We Would “Proudly” Wait Three Days in Line
By Omid Kayvan
We would “proudly” wait three days in line to see the March 1971 Columbia Pictures re-release of "Lawrence of Arabia" in 70MM, which was only shown in one Cinema (same venue as 1963 presentation), the Central Cinema. Our family took turns standing in line during those three days! There must have been over Thousand people at any given time, either trying to push or shove others out of line, or sneak into the line as Black Marketers

Edited by Thomas Hauerslev
"Around the World in 80 Days" was filmed simultaneously in two different film speeds: Todd-AO standard of 30 frames pr. second, and Todd-AO sub-standard 24 frames pr. second, for the 35mm reduction prints. Both negatives are 65mm wide.

Showcase Presentations in Chicago
By Michael Coate, Tim O’Neill and Tamir Sharif
The duration of the engagements, measured in weeks, has been included for each entry in parenthesis following the cinema name. Note that some of the presentations included in this listing may have been presented in 35mm during the latter weeks of engagement due to print damage and the distributor’s unwillingness to supply a 70mm replacement print or because the booking was moved to a smaller, 35mm-only auditorium within a multiplex.

DP70s back at work at the Paramount Theatre in Peekskill, NY
By Helge Bernhardt
I've been working over the last months with the current operators of the Paramount Theatre in Peekskill (NY, US), on getting the projection booth up and running again! The theater hasn't run film in over 15 years and are ready to give it another try. 
Keith Swadkins Passed Away
By Bill Lawrence UPDATED
It is with sadness that we received the news that Keith Swadkins had passed away. Keith had long been a great champion of Cinerama, passionate fan of the format and films, and a friend to fellow enthusiasts around the world. Many will have met and developed a friendship with him at the Widescreen Weekend in Bradford each year, as Keith and his wife Brenda turned up to renew old acquaintances and impress newcomers with his knowledge.

WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID ABOUT IN70MM.COM
I continue to be impressed by the dedication you have to the continuing wellbeing of 70mm. I would like you to have met my colleague and friend, the late Robert Gottschalk, founder and driving force of Panavision. He was of the unshakeable opinion that picture quality, real picture QUALITY, depended on a big piece of negative, the bigger the better.

All good wishes, Sir Sydney Samuelson, December 2009
