The huge screen is wide and deeply curved. It’s the perfect framework to present 70mm with 6-track sound in Super Technirama 70, Todd-AO and Ultra Panavision 70. Image by Thomas Hauerslev

Widescreen Weekend is a unique festival of large-screen formats and cinema technologies celebrating the past, present and future of film.

Enjoy a long weekend of big, bold and wide cinema experiences as we showcase the museum’s fantastic projection facilities. Glorious 70mm screenings, new Cinerama restorations and great guests will remind you why going to the movies is so magical.

Large Format @ Pictureville Cinema, Bradford

 
Large format motion picture systems like CINERAMA and 7OMM is unlike anything you can see in cinemas today - a High Definition movie experience. With very sharp and life-like images plus clear multi track stereo sound, large format is a very realistic illusion of reality, almost three dimensional.

Tony Cutts & Duncan McGregor, former Heads of Projection, Pictureville, 1996:

"The audiences clearly prefer the curved screen to the flat screen".

Bill Lawrence, former Head of Pictureville Cinema, 1996:

"The Widescreen Weekend is a celebration of all that is extraordinary in large format film..."

Bill Lawrence in Conversation, 2018

Thomas Hauerslev, Editor in70mm.com, former Film Programmer, Widescreen Weekend, 1996:

"The Pictureville cinema, is one of three existing cinemas equipped to show Cinerama in the original 3-strip format. The huge screen is wide and deeply curved. It’s the perfect framework to present large format films in all their celluloid glory in Cinerama, Super Technirama 70, Todd-AO or Ultra Panavision 70."
