“Murder on the Orient Express”: The North American 70mm Engagements
“Everyone is a suspect”

The 70mm Newsletter
Compiled by: Michael Coate Date: 20.08.2023
Updated 21-01-24
For lack of US advertising, here's the Australian 7OMM Release at the Ritz in Sydney

The following is a reference / historical listing of the 70-millimeter presentations of “Murder on the Orient Express” in the United States and Canada.

The 20th Century Fox release was directed by Kenneth Branagh (“Hamlet”) and starred Tom Bateman, Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer and Daisy Ridley. The film’s world premiere was held November 2nd, 2017 at Odeon Leicester Square in London. The North American release of the film was November 10th.

Pre-release screenings include a sneak preview November 5th at the Aero in Santa Monica.

The 70mm prints of “Murder on the Orient Express” featured Datasat audio and Panavision Super 70 imagery (based upon a film-out of a DI and letterboxed at approximately 2.39:1).

Los Angeles — ArcLight Hollywood 14 (1+)

New York — Lincoln Square 13 (6)
New York — Village East 7 (5)

Note that some of the presentations included in this listing may have been presented in 35mm or DCP during the latter week(s) of engagement due to contractual terms or print damage and the distributor’s unwillingness to supply a 70mm replacement print or because the booking was moved to a non-70mm-equipped auditorium within a multiplex. In these cases, any 35mm or DCP portion of the engagement has been included in the duration figure.
