Article Breakdown
Part I: Roadshow Era (1963-1971)
Part II: Exclusive Engagement Era (1971-1982)
Part III: General Release Era (1982-2000)
Part IV: ArcLight Era (2002-Present)
Part V: Festivals, Retrospectives and Special Screenings

Not included in this chronology are test screenings, sneak-preview screenings, un-promoted premieres and other private events. The dates represent the first day of commercial release (except in cases during Parts I and II where there was a publicly promoted premiere or invitational preview held the day prior).

Any formats cited in the notes section represent the exhibition format, not the photography process. Any formats followed by a question mark represent an unconfirmed presentation process or one in which conflicting details exist as to which print type was exhibited. A lack of a format notation implies a 35mm presentation with monaural sound.
