Kino Mir 70 festival organizer Adela Kokesova is looking after all the guests

"The name of the festival - KRRR! - which is a part of the festival logo originated in Filmochod agency which is responsible for unified visual presentation of our event. It has several meanings: KRRR! can be seen as an interjection - a group of consonants which evokes the sound of the projector machine, or from point of view of phonetic terms a combination of voiceless and consonant sounds (velar and dental) forming (almost unpronounceable for foreigners) beginning of the city name - Krnov. This original idea which approval aroused strong reactions is hoped to attract new visitors as well as fulfil expectations and standard of those faithful patrons from past years".

Sovscope 70 - 70mm Films in USSR
 
The 70mm cinema Mír 70 in Krnov is one of very few cinemas in the four Visegrad countries (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary), which is able to screen 70mm film of the original, six-track magnetic stereo sound to 105 square meters of slightly curved screen (also with full digitali projection). One of the main task of the festival is to recall the now unused film format which dazzled visitors in its time by brilliant display of details in picture and and insurmountable sound to nowadays public - DESPITE ALL THE DRAWBACKS THAT OLD AND WORN-OUT COPIES OF 70mm FILMS BRING.

See you in Krnov on 17. - 19. April 2015

The "Kino Mir 70" was built around 1920 and is one of the few few cinemas left in The Czech Republic with 70mm projection equipment. The building is owned by the local county and they rent it to the city. It is now managed, with great enthusiasm, by Mr. Pavel Tomešek. From the outside, two sets of doors lead into the cinema and its magnificent and spacious foyer.

20:00 Opening
They are doing a marvellous job at the Kino Mir 70 keeping the best movie experience alive by waving the 70mm flag with. On the second floor, the staircase splits, leading up to the two entrances into the cinema. I enter from the rear of the cinema, and behold: a very nicely sloped cinema. Walls, carpets, seats and curtains are green.
