“Hoffa”: The 70mm Engagements
“He did what he had to do.”

The 70mm Newsletter
Compiled by: Michael CoateDate: 21.09.2017
The following is a reference / historical listing of the 70-millimeter presentations of “Hoffa” in North America. The film’s 70mm prints consisted of letterboxed imagery (approximately 2.39:1) sourced from anamorphic 35mm photography. The audio for the majority of the 70mm prints was Six-Track Dolby Stereo (“A” encoded “baby boom” format). A few of the 70mm prints appear to have been SR-encoded and are noted as such in the listing below.

“Hoffa” was among ten confirmed first-run films released in 1992 with 70mm prints for selected engagements. The Jersey Films production and 20th Century Fox release — directed by Danny DeVito and starring Jack Nicholson — opened December 25th.

For the release of “Hoffa”, Fox employed the services of Lucasfilm’s Theater Alignment Program (TAP) to evaluate and approve the cinemas selected to book a 70mm print.

Trailers for “Jack the Bear” and “The Vanishing” circulated with the “Hoffa” prints and which the distributor recommended be screened with the presentation.
