The Todd-AO Saga Part #2
Widescreen Weekend 1996
By Thomas Hauerslev
Bill Lawrence introduced the show and told the story of how the staff had worked hard to make this work. There was a big applaud for Tony and Duncan from the audience, and Bill Lawrence continued: "Without the International Cinerama Rumour Factory this show would never had taken place". The Widescreen Weekend is a celebration of all that is extraordinary in large format film and the audiences clearly prefer the curve to the flat screen.

Mission Report from Widescreen Weekend 1996
By Thomas Hauerslev
Seeing old prints, faded clips, looking for join lines, the smell of magnetic sound, hearing tape hiss, seeing "Intermission" signs, is all part of the show in Bradford. The week-end in Pictureville came to an end. I owe much thanks to the staff there, especially Mr Bill Lawrence, Mr Tony Cutts, Mr Duncan McGregor and Mr. Dick Vaughan for making it unforgettable, highly interesting and for making me feel so welcome.

Come Back D-150 ....All Is Forgiven
By Grant Lobban
Known simply as D-150, it was the invention of two members of the University of California, Dr Richard Vetter,  and Carl W. Williams. The system was a scaled-up version of an earlier development of theirs for a driving simulator.
General Building Specifications for the Dimension-150 All-Purpose Theatre
The concept of the "all-purpose-theatre" for Dimension 150 exhibition, and the exhibition of all other existing screen processes has been studied by D-150, Inc for several years. The "all- purpose-theatre" should be unique in appearance, functional in design, and economical in construction, operation and maintenance.

"ID4" World Premiere of 70mm DTS at the Spektrum, Oslo, Norway
By Torkell Sätervadet
The Norwegian people are often said to be somewhat strange and crazy, and "You are crazy!" was 20th Century Fox first response when they were confronted with Oslo Municipal Cinemas' idea: to arrange a gigantic screening of "ID4" on a 40 (forty) meter/131 feet screen for an audience of 4500 spectators! The screen was to be installed at the Oslo Spectrum - a large combined concert hall and indoor sports arena in the very heart of Oslo, Norway.
Johan Wolthuis Says Goodbye
By Thomas Hauerslev
In Amsterdam I saw Michael Todd's show "Around the World in 80 Days". From that time on I was convinced that 70mm Todd-AO with 6 channel sound is the ultimate film presentation format for the cinema.
Doris Waller
Keith Swadkins
It is with great sadness that I must report the passing, on August 10th 1996, of Mrs Doris Waller, widow of Fred Waller. Those of us who came to know Doris in recent years will remember her as a frail lady with an active mind a bubbling personality which belied her 89 years.
