Arno Buchholtz at his work as a projectionist at the Tonhallen-Lichtspiele.

A former friend of mine, Arno Buchholtz (1942-1995), who died many years ago, was a projectionist at the Cinerama-Tonhalle cinema in Duesseldorf.

There he took some slides which show the projection room with the Cinermiracle-setup and the projected film on the screen. I had the slides scanned and I am glad to be able to send you some copies. Most of the slides are screenshots photographed from the actual projection of
"Windjammer" in the "Tonhallen-Lichtspiele" (Duesseldorf, Germany).

After his death I inherited the slides (together with a small box containing "Cinerama Test Loops", very short segments of Cinemiracle or Cinerama film (most likely cuts and leftovers from breakdowns) and a "Cinerama Showmanship Manual"

The auditorium and the screen of the Tonhallen-Lichtspiele, but it could be the screen for 70mm rather than Cinemiracle.

I never saw the "Tonhallen-Lichtspiele" myself. When I spent some months at Duesseldorf in the early 80s to work at a legitimate theater, the "Tonhallen-Lichtspiele" (not to be confused with the "Tonhallen"-concert hall) had already vanished for some time.

Let me finally use the opportunity to thank you for all the great work you do with your "in70mm"-website of which i am a regular visitor. I once had the privilege to attend one of lectures at the 70mm-Festival in Karlsruhe (but that was some time ago when Georg Fricker was still alive).
