“Let’s Spend the Night Together”: The 70mm Engagements
“…live it!”

The following is a reference / historical listing of the 70-millimeter presentations of “Let’s Spend the Night Together” in North America. These were the best cinemas in which to experience this motion picture.

“Let’s Spend the Night Together” (AKA “Time is on our Side”) was among thirteen confirmed first-run films released in 1983 with 70mm prints for selected engagements. Forty 70mm prints of the film were reportedly struck for distribution in North America. The Embassy release — directed by Hal Ashby and featuring the Rolling Stones in concert — opened February 11th.

The 70mm prints of “Let’s Spend the Night Together” featured pillarboxed imagery (approximately 1.85:1) blown up from spherical 35mm and six-track stereo. (Conflicting information exists as to whether the prints were Dolby-encoded and if they featured three or five stage channels.)

Embassy circulated 70mm trailers for “Eddie and the Cruisers” and “Losin’ It” during the release of “Let’s Spend the Night Together.” As well, other studios circulated 70mm trailers during this period. Ultimately, the 70mm trailers, if any, seen during the 70mm presentations of “Let’s Spend the Night Together” varied by venue and screening.

The duration of the engagements (measured in weeks) has for some entries been included in parenthesis following the applicable cinema name.

Note that some of the presentations included in this listing may have been presented in 35mm 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 has been included in the duration figure.
