|The following is a reference / historical listing of the 70-millimeter engagements of “Inherent Vice” in the United States and Canada. |
“Inherent Vice” was among two first-run films released in 2014 with 70mm prints for selected engagements. The Warner Bros. release — directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (“The Master”) and starring Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio Del Toro, Jena Malone, Maya Rudolph and Martin Short — opened December 12.
The 70mm prints of “Inherent Vice” featured Datasat audio and pillarboxed imagery (approximately 1.85:1) blown up from spherical 35mm.
During the release of “Inherent Vice,” Warner Bros. circulated 70mm coming-attraction trailers for “American Sniper” and “Jupiter Ascending.”
The duration of the engagements (measured in weeks) is included in parenthesis following the cinema name.
Los Angeles — ArcLight Hollywood 14 (8)
Los Angeles — Cinerama Dome (2)
Toronto — Varsity & VIP 12 (2)
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. As well, the reverse may have been true in some cases whereas a booking began with a 35mm print because the lab was unable to complete the 70mm print order in time for an opening-day delivery or the exhibitor negotiated a mid-run switch to 70mm. In these cases, any 35mm portion of the engagement (or movement out of a branded auditorium) has been included in the duration figure.
