“Logan’s Run”: The 70mm Engagements
“Welcome to the 23rd Century. The only thing you can’t have in this perfect world of total pleasure is your 30th birthday. Logan is 29.”

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

“Logan’s Run” was among four confirmed first-run films released in 1976 with 70mm prints for selected engagements. Approximately two-dozen 70mm prints of the film were struck for distribution in North America. The MGM (though United Artists) release — directed by Michael Anderson and starring Michael York and Jenny Agutter — opened June 23rd (except where noted otherwise).

The 70mm prints of “Logan’s Run” featured full-frame imagery blown up from anamorphic 35mm and a dual inventory of Dolby* and non-Dolby-encoded discrete six-track stereophonic sound. (*A few of the prints — noted in the listing below — were encoded with Dolby Noise Reduction, the first known usage of Dolby in connection with the 70mm format.)

Pre-release screenings included a sneak preview held May 7th at Valley Circle in San Diego. (The sneak preview/test screening reportedly included “laser-beam holography to produce a three-dimensional image” and Dolby-encoded audio.)

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

Note some engagements were double-billed with another MGM or United Artists film during the latter week(s) of the run.
