The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: chief projectionist John Sharp, The 70mm Association Newsletter (London Branch) Issue 51 - December 1997
Since the previous newsletter not much has happened on the scene in London. The National Film Theatre had screenings of "Streets of Fire" and the old favorite "Lawrence of Arabia" in 70mm and The Prince Charles (cinema) have shown "Hamlet".

On Tuesday November 18th, 1997 the Royal Film Performance took place at the Empire Leicester Square. The selected film was "Titanic" which was presented in 70mm with DTS sound. The film itself does not open to the public here until January at the Odeon Leicester Square. As yet, we do not know if this will be presented in 70mm - watch this space.

Virgin Cinemas are currently modernizing all of their sites in the UK. They are at present doing the screens at Fulham Road and Haymarket. When they re-open they will not have facilities for showing 70mm. London's first IMAX Theatre is due to open in the Trocadero centre in December with the world premiere of "The Nutcracker" in IMAX. The BFI has plans for another IMAX as part of their complex on the South Bank. As yet, no dates have been announced.
