Written by: Bill Lawrence. Pictures by: Thomas HauerslevIssue 48 - March 1997
Following the highly successful weekend in Bradford in March 1996, we are currently planning the 4th Widescreen Festival. The 4th Widescreen Film Festival will run through the 3rd Bradford Film Festival, but the core special weekend 14 - 16 March 1997 will be full of widescreen material.

We will be showing "How the West Was Won" again in 3-strip Cinerama, 7-track magnetic stereophonic sound in all its Technicolor glory and "This is Cinerama" in their original 3-strip version. There will be a Sunday morning screening of "Windjammer" (a faded print with German/Dutch narration) - a chance for everyone to see it in 3-strip Cinemiracle despite the poor quality print. We will be screening 70mm prints of "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" and "Lawrence of Arabia".

UIP have agreed to let us preview the restored "Vertigo" in 70mm DTS on the Saturday and we are trying to bring James B. Katz and Robert A. Harris to talk about restoring 70mm films. Mr Dion Hanson of Dolby Laboratories will present a Film Formats event and Mr John Steven Lasher will world premiere his 3-strip Kinopanorama preview "Truth, Chastity and Kinopanorama". Of course there will be the odd surprise. We are also trying to fit in 70mm screenings of "My Fair Lady" and "Spartacus". We will be screening another 40 films during the Festival including 30 new films from Woody Allen's "Everyone Says I Love You" to Claude Leluouch's "Men Women: A Users Manual"; from "Microcosmos" to new IMAX films.

We are inviting all fans of 70mm to bring with them any unusual pieces of 70mm film that they would like to see on the curved Cinerama screen to be shown in a special section on Sunday March 16, 1997. If you could warn us in that would be helpful.

Bradford is still unique in Britain because it boasts the country's only IMAX cinema with its huge, 54' x 62' (16,5 m x 18,9 m) screen. As part of the Bradford Film Festival, the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television offers a chance to preview extraordinary new IMAX films, some never before seen in Europe.

Please write to Bill Lawrence, National Museum of Photography, Film and Television, Pictureville, Bradford, England BD1 1NQ, England. Or fax +44 1274 723 155 for more details.
