Notes:

Studio and private screening rooms have not been included.

In some cases projection equipment was transferred from venue x to venue y and thus the x venue is inadvertently or unintentionally listed in this work.

As well, some venues have been listed because the venue in question was operational in 1970 but the precise year of 70mm install is undetermined (i.e. the 70mm installation may have occurred years later during an ownership change or renovation).

The information in this article was principally referenced from film industry trade reports, regional newspaper promotion, projector and sound system trade advertisements and installation records and correspondence with projectionists and installers/technicians, with special thanks to Claude Ayakawa, David Ayers, Don Beelik, Louis Bornwasser, Martin Brooks, Jim Cobb, Bill Counter, Don Furr, Bill Gabel, Mark Gulbrandsen, Steve Guttag, Bobby Henderson, Jeffry Johnson, William Kallay, Steve Kraus, Bill Kretzel, Ron Lacheur, Stephen Leigh, Mark Lensenmayer, Victor Liorentas, Stan Malone, Adam Martin, Gordon McLeod, Brad Miller, Scott Neff, Thom Vourlas, Brian Whitish, John Williamson, Vince Young, and an extra special thank-you to all of the librarians who helped with this project.

If you believe this article contains any errors or omissions, please consider emailing the author or editor.
