Dear Mr. 70mm,

Once again Mr CINERAMA can help you !!! Your unknown cinema is the FONIX in Kristiansand in Norway. I own a big report about the opening of this cinema on December 1st, 1966, in the professional monthly ZEISS IKON IMAGES ET SON (Pictures and sound) number 78/April 1968. The curved screen was a 19.50 m Perlux and projectors are FAVORIT 70.
