The following is a reference / historical listing of the 70-millimeter engagements of “Airport” in the United States and Canada. These were the cinemas worth seeking out to experience the best presentation of this motion picture.

The Universal release was produced by Ross Hunter and directed by George Seaton and featured an all-star cast headed by Burt Lancaster, Dean Martin, Helen Hayes and George Kennedy.

Out of the hundreds of films released during 1970, “Airport” was among only eleven released with 70mm prints (four from 65mm origination, including “Airport,” plus seven blow-ups).

The 70mm prints of “Airport” featured full-frame imagery (from 65mm Todd-AO cinematography) and discrete six-channel stereophonic sound.
