Requiring special projector lenses sent to theaters to capture the filmís visual impact, Quentin Tarantinoís new Western, THE HATEFUL EIGHT, was shot in Ultra Panavision 70 - the first such production since KHARTOUM. Other films shot in Ultra Panavision include the star-studded comedy ITíS A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD, which proved as side-splitting as it was screen-stretching, and the timeless classic BEN HUR, whose famous chariot race used the edges of the image to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

Recent releases like Christopher Nolanís sci-fi adventure INTERSTELLAR and Paul Thomas Andersonís philosophical character study THE MASTER underline the continuing appeal of widescreen formats to filmmakers. While 70mm films are rare these days, during the mediumís Golden Age from 1955 to 1970, there were nearly 60 Hollywood features shot in large-format (with many more released in special engagements as 35mm-to-70mm blow-ups). And as with Tarantino, Nolan and Anderson, the possibilities offered by widescreen vistas were put to very diverse uses. Cast-of-thousands historical sagas were naturals for such epic presentations, and multi-Oscar winners LAWRENCE OF ARABIA still looks stunning in 70mm. Master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock reached what many consider the summit of his career with San Francisco-set mystery VERTIGO. And with SILVERADO, writer-director Lawrence Kasdan dusted off the Western for a 1980s audience (SILVERADO was shot on Super 35mm but is presented in 70mm; BEN HUR will be presented in DCP.

Recent releases like Quentin Tarantinoís THE HATEFUL EIGHT underline the continuing appeal of widescreen formats to filmmakers. Join us for two weekends of some of our favorite 70mm and Ultra Panavision-shot films, ranging from the mediumís 1955-to-1970 Golden Age (LAWRENCE OF ARABIA) to more contemporary epics such as THE MASTER.
