Compiled by: Michael Coate Date: 28.08.2016
The following is a reference/historical list of the Cinerama-branded 70mm roadshow engagements of “Khartoum” held in North America. These presentations utilized special rectified prints derived from 65mm Ultra Panavision photography and projected onto large, deeply curved screens. The audio was six-track stereophonic. The seating was reserved at advanced prices and with an average of ten scheduled screenings per week. The cinemas in which these special presentations played also sold souvenir programs.

The United Artists release was directed by Basil Dearden and starred Charlton Heston and Laurence Olivier. Its North American premiere was held simultaneously in the Golden Triangle of Denver, Minneapolis and Omaha on June 20th, 1966. (The film’s world premiere was held in London on June 9th.)
