The First Todd-AO Theatre in Scandinavia
By Thomas Hauerslev
The 3 Falke Bio opened to the public on Friday October 24, 1958. It had a 1000 seats and was the most luxurious cinema in Denmark a that time. The designer was Mr. Ole Hagen, a famous Danish architect, responsible for numerous schools, public buildings and houses. His company Ole Hagens Tegnestue was the largest architectural firm in Denmark for many years.

Time Traveling to the New Neon
By David Joachim
I bought my first class tickets in April of '97 and booked passage for a three day trip. My fellow travelers came from America's East and West coasts, as well as parts of Europe. We shared a common bond: an undying love of the world's greatest widescreen process, Cinerama.
The Miracle of Todd-AO Final review May 1, 1956
Todd-AO's intense feeling of realism and its possibilities for intimacy and emotional participation convinced Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein that this was the medium in which to present on the screen their American classic, "Oklahoma!"

Jan Jacobsen - His Story
By Bill Shaw
Jan suggested: "I can build a 15-perf 65mm camera. No optical printing will be needed." So, he went to work in his shop in Copenhagen and, within 4 months, showed Graeme a very compact camera, based on a tandem 7-1/2 perf mechanism. On Dec. 3, 1968, Jan delivered the camera to Galt, Ontario, Canada, home of Multiscreen Corporation, the original name of Imax Corporation.

The Biggest format in the Smallest Cinema
By Thomas Hauerslev
I run 70mm at Biffen for the simple reason I think it is a fabulous format. I like to look at it, it is easy to handle and we can run it. It is a pleasure for me to see a large well-illuminated 70mm image on the screen. And with that large hole in the projector aperture plate, it is easy to punch some light onto the screen. Those are the primary reasons why I run 70mm here.
Jan Jacob Kotte
By Anton Kotte
The most remarkable moment came at the end of a working day in 1963. My father entered our living room, wearing a hat and coat, which was very unusual for him, and told to us: “We won an OSCAR"!
