Written, Performed and organized by: Herbert Born & Thomas Hauerslev, Schauburg Cinerama Theatre, Karlsruhe, Germany Date: 04.10.2007
Updated 21-12-18
For three days in October 2007, the famous German Cinerama cinema "Filmtheater Schauburg" in Karlsruhe, presents a dozen classic film epics in the king of all film formats: 70mm. This is a High Definition movie experience with extremely sharp images and crystal clear 6 track stereo. This is a BIG weekend, in the BIG film format on our a BIG screen. Be a part of this unique event and share the excitement together with visitors from all around the world - including Germany, Denmark, England, USA and France - and hopefully many more.

Be a part of the action. Feel the "illusion of reality" and “The first person experience” from the front row in the impressive super 70mm format. Celebrate with us when we present the films in the original format, where they were meant to be seen - on a huge 136 square meters curved Cinerama screen, in a traditional road show cinema. 70mm film is an experience unlike anything you have ever seen.

The Schauburg Cinerama is one of the few surviving cinemas, with 70mm projectors, a red curtain and the huge curved and wide 70mm screen. It’s the perfect framework for the presentation of 70mm with 6-track sound. Some films are in original versions and some "70mm Vintage Classics" are dubbed into German. The 2007 Weekend program will be a variety of old 70mm films with a GALA performance on Saturday evening celebrating the world of 70mm film. Traditional breakfast and lunch functions Saturday and Sunday. Around the world in Three Days on the curved Cinerama screen. Everything is included - in the majestic 70mm format at the Schauburg cinema in Karlsruhe.

Lecture by Monsieur Jean-Rene FAILLIOT

11:30 - 12:00 Restoration of “Play Time”

Jean-Rene Failliot, Gulliver's Technical Director, has a lifetime of 35mm and 65mm film experience behind him, and an unimpeachable standing in the French film world. Trained as a cameraman, he also worked as a gaffer, grip and editor before devoting his energies to optical effects and lab work, founding Arane in November, 1976 with his wife (and company CEO) Veronique Failliot. Since then, Jean-Rene has added a mastery of optical effects, title production, colour grading and photo-chemistry to his professional profile. The founding of Gulliver in 1995 saw the realization of a life-long desire to contribute to the field of large format film. Over the past five years, Jean-Rene has virtually single-handedly customized all of Gulliver's 65mm printers and processors to meet the strict performance levels required by 65mm production.
