Todd-AO Festival at the Schauburg
October 7-9, 2010

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: Born/Hauerslev, Schauburg Cinerama Theatre, Karlsruhe,GermanyDate: 01.09.2011
KARLSRUHE, Sep 1, 2011 / news. We have launched the 7th instalment of the “Todd-AO 70mm Festival“ to be held from 7 - 9 October 2011 at the Schauburg in Karlsruhe, Germany. For three days in October Filmtheater Schauburg celebrates the world of LARGE FORMAT film, by offering a series of epic films in 70mm - the HD of film formats. A variety of old 70mm films with a GALA performance of Kenneth Branagah's masterpiece "Hamlet" on Saturday evening. Some films are in their original versions and some "70mm Vintage Classics", are dubbed into German.

Once again spectacular large format process names like "Super Technirama 70", "MCS 70 Superpanorama" and "Ultra Panavision 70" will light up on the large 18 meter curved Cinerama screen.

Let us hope, that the splendour of 70mm not only serves our nostalgic dreams, but also offers the chance for a young audience to experience a historic and magic landmark of cinema.
Join us and be part of this unique event and share the excitement together with visitors from all around the world - including Austria, Switzerland, Holland, Germany, Denmark, England, USA and France - and hopefully many more.

We welcome our very special guest, Academy Award winner Mr. Kevin Brownlow to the Schauburg. Mr. Brownlow is flying in from England to give his “From Biograph to Fox Grandeur. Early Experiments in Large Format Presentations” lecture.

We are also very proud to have five vintage Canadian 70mm short films on the program. Short films are rarely seen in cinemas any more, but we can present no less than five of them in blazing 70mm with superb 6-track magnetic stereo. All of which are specially loaned to us by our friends in Canada.
