On March 16, 2013 at 2pm, the ROYAL theater in Malmö Sweden, will celebrate its 52nd anniversary! On the same day I will celebrate my 60th birthday and I’m happy to invite you all to the screening of ”Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines” in the wonderful 70mm-format.

Come to Malmø Saturday, 16th March.

This was a thrill

The single show of "Mag Men" is nearly sold out. 360 happy guests of Sebastian's are expected by 2 o'clock at the Royal cinema in Central Malmö, Sweden. Sebastian has invited all his friends in Denmark, England and of course his native Sweden to celebrate his 60th birthday with him.
 
 
In 70mm at the Royal theater in Malmö on March 16 at 2pm. The Royal might be the theater with the largest and also curved screen, 20 x 8,3m, in Europe that can show films in 70mm. The Royal is unique.

 
 
"Projectionist" Sebastian (Fredrik Badtoffla taking the picture), is changing a reel on the magnificent DP70 projector. Although the Royal is a fully state of the art 4K digital cinema, the management have kept their OSCAR winning DP70 Todd-AO machines for events like this. The DP70 have been carefully massaged for this show by the staff, who are all looking forward to "wave the 70mm flag" in Skåne.

 
 
Being a projectionist is a job who requires skilled hands to project films, especially 70mm - the deLuxe format of the cinema.
 
 
A rare view through a DP70 masking plate - in the box is the projection lens from 1961, and ISCO T-Kiptagon - a SERIOUS piece of glass and tailor made for Royal's curved screen.

 
 
The five transportation cases of 70mm film - this is heavy duty cases, and requires a healthy amount of muscle to carry to the projection room. Unlike a 1 TB harddisk, which you can have in your pocket, this is 150 kilos of iron requires large "gladiators" of projectionists - all oiled up for 70mm combat.
