Compiled by: Michael CoateDate: 16.04.2023
The following is a reference / historical listing of the 70-millimeter engagements of “Ready Player One” in the United States and Canada.

“Ready Player One” was among two first-run films released in 2018 with 70mm prints for selected engagements. The Warner Bros. release — directed by Steven Spielberg (“Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “E.T.”) and starring Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg and Mark Rylance— opened March 29th.

“Ready Player One” premiered at the Paramount in Austin, Texas, during the South by Southwest Film Festival on March 11th, 2018.

The 70mm prints of “Ready Player One” featured Datasat audio and letterboxed imagery (approximately 2.39:1) sourced from anamorphic 35mm.

Warner Bros. circulated 70mm coming-attraction trailers for “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” and the 50th anniversary re-release of “2001: A Space Odyssey” during the release of “Ready Player One.”

Where known, the duration of the engagements (measured in weeks) is included in parenthesis following the cinema name.

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.
