  Three DP70 (___+____+____). There were quite a few installations of DP70 in Israel, I've seen 3 DP70's in Cinema Sharon in Nethania back in 1980, naturally they showed only 35mm. There are 3@ Fedi 70 machines still in the booth of cinema Gordon in Tel-Aviv. Both cinemas have been defunct for years. Alex Asp, 13.06.2011.
Tel-Aviv Cinema City
  One DP70 (___). One of the last surviving DP70's exhibited in the lobby of Cinema City, 30 screen multiplex at the outskirts of Tel-Aviv. Alex Asp, 13.06.2011

The machine is not functional. With 70 mm empty reel in upper magazine, and 35 mm reel in the lower. The film gate inside is 35 mm, and the magnetic heads block is still in place. 18.06.2011 image by Steven Becker.
