Part 2: The Engagements

 
What follows is a chronology of 5-perf 70-millimeter and Cinerama presentations in the Atlanta region.

To simplify the layout of the information, no distinction has been made between those movies originated in large format or large aperture and those originated in 35mm and blown up to 70mm. Such details can be found in numerous articles and reference material on this website (and elsewhere).

The majority of the titles featured in this chronology showcased some flavor of stereophonic sound (six-track for 70mm and seven-track for Cinerama). The noted 35mm presentations used in some roadshow situations were often 4-track magnetic stereo or, in some cases, standard optical mono. The 70mm prints issued from the late 1970s typically were encoded with Dolby Noise Reduction and often included “baby boom” low-frequency enhancement and occasionally split surrounds. Most of the recently-struck prints featured digital sound (DTS aka Datasat).

This project excludes IMAX and other Special Venue presentations. (These details might be added in a forthcoming revision.) Pre-1950s era roadshows have also not been included.

Note that some of the titles included in this listing were presented in 35mm during the latter week(s) of their 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. As well, the reverse may have been true in some cases whereas a booking began with a 35mm print because the lab was unable to complete the 70mm print order in time for an opening-day delivery or the exhibitor negotiated a mid-run switch to 70mm. In these cases, any 35mm portion of the engagement has been included in the duration figure.

Also, regarding roadshow presentations, the reserved-seat policy, in some instances, was relaxed during the latter weeks of the run. Any non-roadshow portion of such an engagement has been included in the duration figure.

* Reserved-seat (“roadshow”) engagement.

** Screened in 35mm, but advertised (deceptively or inadvertently) in 70mm in advance of opening and/or during first couple of days of run.

m/o = a move-over engagement (i.e. a continuation of a booking from another cinema)
