Saturn electronics store on Tauentzienstraße 9 in the Berlin's Europa Center
has exhibited an authentic Todd-AO DP70 70mm projector in their department
of Hi-Fi and electronics.
Fortunately, I've a day off today, so I've been there and enjoyed the award
winning Philips DP70 projector, which is even loaded with a reel of 70mm
The machine can be seen on the third floor in the Megastore's HiFi

- The Todd-AO Projector
Royal Palast, Berlin,
DP70 serial number plate. This is machine #1870 from the former "CITY"
cinema in Europacenter.
A friendly shop assistant told me that this is one of the projectors of the
cinema which was demolished in spring/summer 2006 in order to make room for
the new Saturn "Flagship-Store" electronics store, which opened in the
summer of 2007 in Tauentzienstraße. The JBL loudspeakers behind the DP70 is
also from the demolished Royal Palast.
DP70 with a roll of 70mm film - but which title?
August 2016 Update:
... the riddle is solved regarding the film title on the reel. Surprisingly,
it is a really rare 70mm clip from the movie "Sheherazade"
(France, Italy, Spain, 1963)
See comment here:
l think the reel of 70mm on the DP70 is from "EL CID" (1961)
