Cinerama Downunder70mm's Last Stand? - The Future of 70mm
Ole Olsen of UIP in Copenhagen, Denmark
By Thomas Hauerslev
I was not destined for the cinema business at first, but circumstances directed me into it. My father ran the cinema at the Danish Film Museum in Frederiksberggade in downtown Copenhagen. It was a childhood full of film. My brothers and I saw films all the time.

2001 bit and pieces
"Originally Kubrick wanted to shoot 2001 in the wide-screen format of 1,85. "I said, You've got to make it visceral. If you are going to put people in space there's nothing bigger than 70mm wide screen to do that and Cinerama is even better because it would be curved, and he agreed".

International 70mm Publishers Meeting"Orpheus in the Underworld" - Introduction
By Ingolf Vonau

The film that you are about to see was the last 70mm production in East Germany. After 7 feature films and 2 documentaries this production line came to an end. Why did the East German film company DEFA decide to film in 70mm?
Freddie Young
By Tony Sloman
Freddie Young achieved a dazzling hat-trick, unequalled and unrivalled, in being triple-Oscared for three movies, all of which premiered in the 70mm format, leading them a scale and distinction that, despite the punctilious direction of master craftsman director David Lean, would have unquestionably remained wanting without the contribution of the great Frederich A. Young's camerawork.
Jan Jacobsen
By Gerhard Fromm
Jacobsen met with Mr. Travnicek and Mr. Pinelli and they convinced him to develop a European version of the highly successful Todd-AO process. So was "MCS 70" founded and in a short time Jacobsen and his small team built six 65mm 5-perf field cameras.
Remastered: Mission Report Widescreen Weekend 1999
By Thomas Hauerslev
T
his was the 5th festival of its kind. Most of the films shown during the busy weekend were in 70mm and 3-strip Cinerama, two very popular film formats among the audiences. What follows here is a collection of memories garnished with some pictures of guests and crew from the Pictureville Cinema.
There Were Giants in the Land: Stanley Kubrick
By Tony Sloman
If David Lean´s three 70mm epics are but flawed masterpieces, there is no doubt that two of the finest 70mm movies, indeed two of the finest works in all cinema, are "Spartacus" and "2001:A Space Odyssey", both directed by Stanley Kubrick, who passed away in his sleep March 7, 1999 at the relatively early age of 70, having just delivered his last, and inevitably long-gestating and ultra controversial movie, the highly erotic "Eyes Wide Shot".
There Were Giants in the LandWidescreen Weekend 1999
By Thomas Hauerslev
Bill Lawrence introduced Louis de Rochemont III who received a standing ovation from the audience. Louis directed "Windjammer" and had not seen the film in 40 years. The experience was overwhelming, and I am almost certain that Louis had a tear in his eyes. Louis signed many autographs after the film.

Looking for DEFA 70
Video Projection Revolution: The Phantom ImprovementLFCA Conference 1999
Radio City Music Hall
By Bob Endres
The Hall was relatively late in installing 70mm projection equipment because of the necessity of accommodating the stage show that accompanied the film. The Music Hall show always ran between two and three hours including the stage show, which varied in length depending on the length of the feature.

Film Restoration on the eve of the Millennium
By Robert Harris
Over the past twenty years or so, film restoration has come out of the laboratory and into the theatres. It has become a concept that enables entities like The American Film Institute and The Film Foundation to bring in public funds to help preserve and restore our national film heritage.
