Tony Cutts & Duncan McGregor, Heads of Projection: The audiences clearly prefer the curve to the flat screen. Generally, we have a difficult job explaining the difference between the formats and what film goes on which screen. "Why don't you show this on the curve?" they often ask.

Thomas Hauerslev, Editor The 70mm Newsletter: The Pictureville cinema, the jewel of British cinema in Bradford, West Yorkshire in the heart of Great Britain, is one of three cinemas equipped to show Cinerama in the original 3-strip format. The huge screen is wide and deeply curved. Its the perfect framework to present 70mm with 6-track sound in Super Technirama 70, Todd-AO and Ultra Panavision 70.

Why is 70mm so special?
"in 70mm" is unlike anything you have ever seen - a High Definition movie experience with extremely sharp images and crystal clear 6 track stereo.
"in 70mm" is very realistic, almost three dimensional and can make everything you have ever seen pale into insignificance. But don't take our word for it - come and see for your self.
