70mm-Superpanorama Amüsement
By Deutsches Filmmuseum
Das Kino des Deutschen Filmmuseums zeigt im Juli vier 70mm-Filme – eine seltene Gelegenheit, die man sich nicht entgehen lassen sollte. Bis Anfang der 1970er Jahre war 70mm das Format für aufwändige Großproduktionen. Nach wie vor gibt es Liebhaber des Formats: Paul Thomas Anderson drehte 2012 Teile von "THE MASTER" mit einer 65mm-Kamera, Christopher Nolan nutzte für den Dreh von "INTERSTELLAR" sowohl 35mm-Kameras als auch 65mm-IMAXKameras und sorgte dafür, dass sein Film zusätzlich zum digitalen Format auch als 70mm-Analogfilm in die Kinos kam.

Seeing the Big Picture
By American Cinematheque
Requiring special projector lenses sent to theaters to capture the film’s visual impact, Quentin Tarantino’s new Western, THE HATEFUL EIGHT, was shot in Ultra Panavision 70 - the first such production since KHARTOUM. Other films shot in Ultra Panavision include the star-studded comedy IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD, which proved as side-splitting as it was screen-stretching, and the timeless classic BEN HUR, whose famous chariot race used the edges of the image to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
