We arrived at Leicester Square early on a Saturday morning to join a Cinema Theatre Association visit to the Odeons and Empire. The Empire was the third visit, its vast auditorium was amazing with the constant colour changing lighting scheme. We then entered the projection room from the rear of the auditorium. Hum from the rectifier packs was loud. The three DP70s were all laced and ready for a film show for our group.

"Far and Away"

Internet link:

 
DP70s 1349+1352+2125

The chief technician Fred Fullerton had arranged the right hand DP70 to show a 35mm reissue black and white trailer of "Casablanca" , the middle DP70 a 70mm trailer of "Far and Away" and left hand DP70 a 35mm scope Dolby Digital trailer of "Unforgiven". After a look around we returned to the auditorium for the film show with a different laser show between each trailer. All together a unforgettable day.

 
 

2013 update

 
I visited the Empire Leicester Square on Wednesday 17 July 2013. Here is a photo of DP70 s/n 2125 in its current state against the back wall of the projection room.
