"Cinerama Adventure" update
By Dave Strohmaier
The documentary is in Director's cut and is 100 minutes long. A lot has changed since the early versions. We have shown it around Los Angeles at several "test screenings" and also at professional documentary film maker private screenings to get some needed feedback. It's all on history now with nothing on Bradford, Ohio or Seattle.
"This is Cinerama"'s Cinerama Dome
By Enthusiastic Cinerama Fans
On the evening of September 30, 1952 the feature-length travel log "THIS IS CINERAMA" debuted. 50 years later, on October 4, 2002 it returns with a newly reconstructed print and seven-channel stereophonic sound - presented in its ORIGINAL THREE-STRIP PROJECTION SYSTEM on the huge, deeply-curved Cinerama Dome screen!
70mm at the City Screen York
By Darren Briggs
Screens 1 and 2 are equipped with two projectors enabling changeover shows to be performed for screening archive prints etc. Being a fan of 70mm and large screen formats for many years, I wanted to upgrade Screen 1 to 70mm as soon as I was given the chance. In December 2001, after a conversation with Tony Jones, he gave the go ahead

An Interview With Jim Ward, V.P. of Marketing, Lucasfilm, Ltd.
By Bill Kallay
Jedi Knights, Imperial Storm troopers and Tusken Raiders rejoiced this past summer of 2002, when it was announced that "Star Wars: Episode II-Attack of the Clones", would be released in the IMAX format. For how many years have fans of the original trilogy, and now prequels, wished upon the stars above Skywalker Ranch for the films to be shown on the giant IMAX screen?
Filming of "Lewis and Clarke" in IMAX
By Kurtis Burr
One of the biggest challenges in doing an IMAX film about "Lewis and Clark" is trying to capture the incredible scenery they would have experienced almost 200 years ago.

An Interview With Roy Conli, Producer of "Treasure Planet"
By Bill Kallay
I came to Disney in 1993 and worked on the development of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and was co-producer on that film. I went to France to run the French unit, and then ended up staying for three years running the French studio, where I worked on the production of "Hercules" (1997) and "Tarzan" (1999). And then I came back here five years ago to produce this film. And previous to that, I was in the theatre.

2002 LFCA
By Bill Kallay
Universal Studios, Imagine Entertainment and IMAX recently unveiled their plans to re-release the 1995 film, "Apollo 13", in IMAX later this summer, re-titled as Apollo 13-The IMAX Experience. The film went through IMAX's proprietary software process, DMR, to enlarge and de-grain the Super 35mm images for presentation on the IMAX screen. In addition, the 2.40:1 aspect ratio has been re-worked into 1.66:1.

The Lion King: The IMAX Experience An Interview with Don Hahn
By Bill Kallay
My favorite sequence in IMAX is when Mufasa's ghost shows up, Simba goes to the reflecting pool, sees his reflection, and then all of the sudden, the clouds form and Mufasa shows up. That's a stunning scene in IMAX. To see a six-story tall apparition coming at you is very moving.

Meet the Chief - Thomas Hauerslev
Published in Cinema Technology
I have had one special movie interest: 70mm films. It is a great joy for me to see a rock-steady 70mm image on a large curved screen and listen to 6-track stereo. Thanks to the high resolution (even from a blow-up) it is a very intense experience for me to see 70mm.
How to Create the Best experience in the Cinema
By Thomas Hauerslev
Films like "Titanic" and "Braveheart" should have been shot in 65mm simply because they are "big" movies. But shooting in 65mm doesn't need to be limited to the obvious mega productions. Small independent movies would benefit enormously with the sharper picture. I'd enjoy seeing films like "Enemy of the State", "As Good As It Gets" and "You've Got Mail" and many more, shot on 65mm stock and presented in 70mm.
