70mm Film Presentations in London, England 1958 - 2021

This is the story of a Golden Age. An era of opulence, glamour, glitz and grandeur. It was the best of times. The technology that drove this epoch was of course, 70mm projection. London's West End was especially blessed with first run 70mm screenings in the most beautiful picture theatres, as they were described at that time. That special time ran from the late fifties to the end of the sixties and I was especially blessed to be part of it. 70mm was and is the gold standard of cinema, a standard which has yet to be equalled, let alone surpassed.
