14th Todd AO Festival at The Schauburg Cinerama
Impressions from 70mm weekend in Karlsruhe 2018

It’s always a pleasure to take a trip to Karlsruhe, Germany, and the 70mm-festival at the Schauburg Theatre. I have been there quite a few times now and, of course, also this year. Many films in the best film format for a weekend. Usually with a nice warm up on the Thursday with one or two films in 4K. But it’s not only the movies. It’s everything around it. Lots of 70mm-lovers. It’s all so well planned and you don’t need to leave the theater apart from when you need some sleep. You get your ticket and everything is included. All the movies, of course. Breakfast, coffee & cookies and dinner. One evening you also get a glass or more of tasty beer.

One day there’s always an interesting lecture about the history of 70mm by the expert Thomas Hauerslev. This year also by Orla Vestergaard Nielsen. He informed us about a new 70mm camera. And finally Morten Skallerud introduced and showed us his short film "A Year Along the Abandoned Road" and another more recent film ["Where the Trains Used to Go"].

It hardly ever happens, but if you are restless and want to go for a walk and see some sights I can recommend Badische Weinstuben im Botanischen Garten. They have a delicious Schwarzwaldbecher. And it’s so nice to sit outside in the beautiful park. The park is very close to the castle. I have never been inside it but it’s a little special to me because one of our greatest opera singers, Birgit Nilsson, sung there many years ago. I mention her because I’m an opera singer myself and I have attended her master classes a couple of times at the Malmö Opera and also sung at the Birgit Nilsson Museum in Svenstad, not far from Båstad, Sweden, in July, this year.

Anyway, back to the Schauburg and the main reason for going to Karlsruhe. The theater is one of my absolute favorites with the big curved screen and a beautiful curtain. To enjoy big films there in the good company of other movie lovers is nothing but thrilling. An interesting film this year was one from the DDR: "Hauptmann Florian von der Mühle". The colors were still there and it looked almost new. Hoffa, I saw for the first time. And "Dersu Uzula" - both of these two were a little pale but very, very good films. My favorite this year was "West Side Story", in full color. What a treat.

I would like to thank each and everyone working at the Schauburg Theater. Thank you also Thomas Hauerslev and Herbert Born. You are doing a fantastic job and make us feel truly welcome.
