The following is a reference / historical listing of the 70-millimeter engagements of “Tom Sawyer” in North America. These were the cinemas worth seeking out to experience the best presentation of this motion picture.

“Tom Sawyer” was the lone first-run film released in 1973 with 70mm prints for selected engagements. The Arthur P. Jacobs production and United Artists release was directed by Don Taylor (“Escape from the Planet of the Apes,” “The Final Countdown”) and starred Johnny Whitaker, Celeste Holm, Jeff East and Warren Oates.

The 70mm prints of “Tom Sawyer” featured six-track stereophonic sound and full-frame imagery blown up from anamorphic 35mm.

Premiere/opening date YYYY-MM-DD … city — venue (duration in weeks) [notes]

1973-03-15 … New York — Radio City Music Hall* (9)

1973-05-23 … Los Angeles — Century Plaza 2 (8) [70mm from Week 2]

1973-07-17 … Salt Lake City (South Salt Lake) — Century 21 (9) [70mm from Week 5]
