iWERKS

All 70mm film lists
Compiled by: Dan Sherlock & Thomas Hauerslev Date: November 2002
iWERKS Turbo Ride in Liseberg, Gothenburg, Sweden. Picture by Thomas Hauerslev

The 8/70 format has been used for quite a few special venue and Expo films. It has also been used for quite a few "ride films" using motion bases, and quite a few IMAX Dome films have been printed down to the 8/70 format. The first use of the 8/70 format for a movie shown to the public that comes to mind was for multimedia sequences in the program "VOYAGE TO THE OUTER PLANETS" in 1973. Those sequences were filmed in 8/65 with a fisheye lens and blown up to Omnimax. The entire film "COSMOS: THE UNIVERSE OF LOREN EISLEY" was blown up in this manner in 1974.

The 8/70 format has been used for ride films, dome projection, 3-D, and special uses such as for projection onto water screens and, for example, in the SPIDERMAN ride in Florida.

But as a sampling, here are some of the non-ride films that were projected in 8/70 (not limited to films done by Iwerks):

Imagination 1989
Tierra de Gracia 1992
To Be An Astronaut 1992
