Todd-AO screening: "Those Magnificent Men"


Classics at the Royal. The largest screen in Sweden

"Doctor Zhivago" at the Royal

This was a thrill

Interview With Projectionist Hans Braman, Royal, Malm°, Sweden

Internet link:
 
Visitors from Denmark, Projectionist Tommy and his lovely partner Anne drove 500 km from S°nder Saltum in Jylland to see 70mm. Tommy once showed "War and Peace" in 70mm at Biografen, N°rresundby.
 
 
Írjan and Linda Lindberg from Malm÷, spending an afternoon to experience "The Splendour of Todd-AO" in a BIG cinema.

 
 
Maria and Thomas Hauerslev (the editor of this web site) came over from Copenhagen. Note Sebastian's purpose made poster above the doors - including a 70mm logo

 
 
Among the guests  was Hans "Hasse" Braman, former projectionist at the Royal - now retired
 
 
Sebastian and a fan #1 - his mother.

Sebastian had decorated the Royal with stills and posters from "Mag Men".

 
 
The Todd-AO logo was there too....

 
 
The small foyer of the Royal with audience - note the TV screens with "Mag Men" displays.

 
 
 
This is what it is all about - 70mm - BIG images. Pink, but BIG. The 70mm print was worn here and there, but generally in OK condition considering it's probably from the original release in 1965.

 
 
Swedish re-wind table with a reel on display.

Royal and the 70mm Film


 
 
Rikke and Orla Nielsen from Aalborg in Denmark - who also drove 500 km to see film in Todd-AO. Orla manages the "Biffen" with 3 cinemas, two of which can run 70mm. The largest, and only, double-screen 70mm installation in Denmark.

 
 
The audience - more than 300 - very cheery, and they gave Sebastian a well-deserved round of applause after his introduction.

 
 
Linda and Írjan from Malm÷.

 
 
This is what it all about - FLYING MACHINES. Note the dark corners of the screen - this is because it is a 3D "Silver Screen". Unfortunately, the light reflection is a bit uneven - the "hot spotting" is clearly visible.
 
 
Audience looking at the screen.

 
 
More audience

 
 
...and more...
 
 
Maria and Thomas

 
 
Directed by the late and great Ken Annakin.

 
 
More foreign guest had flown in to see "Mag Men". Here it is Margaret Weedon and Mark Lyndon from London saying something to Sebastian.

 
 
Sebastian says goodbye to his guests after the film.

 
 
Last curtain at the Royal for 70mm this time.....maybe 70mm will return to Royal?

SEBASTIAN!!!!!!!

Run it, and we will come......
