Dear Friends,

We are now finalizing the 5th instalment of the “Todd-AO 70mm Festival“ to be held this year from 2 - 4 October 2009 at the Schauburg in Karlsruhe, Germany.

This festival, dedicated to a movie format over 50 years old, is a dream for a lot of movie fans around the world. Today, movies and cinemas have reached a time of change – a change from film based to digital cinema and a change in the way movies are felt and understood. We are sure, that our “Todd-AO 70mm Festival” presented on the curved screen of the Schauburg not only will make you remember cinema-going from a time long ago, but also make you aware of the responsibility we all have: To honour the genius of so many people who have given us stories and unforgettable moments in breathtaking and crystal clear large format pictures.

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 2009 Weekend program will offer a variety of old 70mm films with a GALA performance on Saturday evening celebrating the world of 70mm film. Traditional breakfast and lunch function on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Around the world in Three Days on the curved Cinerama screen. Almost everything is screened in the majestic 70mm format at the Schauburg cinema in Karlsruhe.

For three days in October 2009, the famous Cinerama cinema "Filmtheater Schauburg" in Karlsruhe, Germany presents a series of classic film epics in the king of all film formats: 70mm. 70mm film is an experience unlike anything you have ever seen - a High Definition movie experience with extremely sharp images and crystal clear 6 track stereo. Join us and be part of this unique event and share the excitement together with visitors from all around the world - including Holland, Germany, Denmark, England, USA and France - and hopefully many more.

The audience get a lot more out of a film, if presented in 70mm with razor sharp images and crystal clear sound. Films presented in 70mm are an intensive experience, very realistic and almost three dimensional. It is an experience which makes everything you have ever seen on film before pales into insignificance. The audience really get value for their money! Let us hope, that the splendour of 70mm not only serves our nostalgic dreams, but also offers the chance for a young audience to experience a historic and magic landmark of cinema.

Mr. Jean Rene Faillot (Arane Laboratory) will be present at the festival and will be available for Q&A after screening of "Faubourg 36". Image by Thomas Hauerslev

The setting is spring 1936; a working-class district in the north of Paris. This neighborhood probably had a name once but now everyone simply calls it the Faubourg. In early may, three residents of the Faubourg - Pigoil, Milou, and Jacky - still sulk over the closing of the Chansonia four months ago. Supported by the locals who live to the rhythm of monsieur Tsf’s radio, the three friends decide to take hold of their destiny by producing the “hit” musical the Chansonia has always needed. With the help of the town, and the arrival of a mysterious and beautiful young actress named Duce, Pigoil, Milou, and Jacky bring the magic of the stage back to the Chansonia.

Get a closer look at the Todd-AO projector on display in Schauburg foyer

DP70 on display in Schauburg foyer during Todd-AO Festival. Image by Herbert Born.

The birth of the DP70 projector dates back to October 1952 and the beginning of the Todd-AO process.
Michael Todd, not satisfied with technical limitations of the Cinerama process, he formed a company with some investors, including Rodgers and Hammerstein II, Joe Schenk and George Skouras and named it MAGNA. The purpose of Magna was to develop a new wide screen process. Magna Theatre Corporation commissioned American Optical company to develop the system which was named Todd-AO. For Todd-AO a new projector was required. Unable to make one in-house, American Optical Company asked several US projector companies to build a new 70mm projector. None of them, however, believed a completely new 70mm projector could be ready in only 9 months as required. Read full story

"The Fall of the Roman Empire" - Sunday, 4. October 2009, 16:00

"The Fall of the Roman Empire" / "Der Untergang des römischen Reiches" (3:11) (+ intermission). Filmed in: 65mm, 5 perforations, 24 frames per second. Principal photography in: Ultra Panavision 70. Presented on: The curved screen in Ultra Panavision 70 with 6-track magnetic stereo. Aspect ratio: 2,79:1 *). Country of origin: USA. Production year: 1963 World Premiere: 24.03.1964. West Germany premiere: 12.06.1964.

* ) I would suggest to change the description for "Fall of the Roman Empire" to this: presented on: The curved screen in 70mm with 6 track magnetic. Aspect ratio: 2.21:1. "Fall" was unusual in that to my knowledge it was the only UP70 movie that was only printed in to flat prints (2.21 to 1). This is by the way the supposedly best print of the movie that is still available.

Samuel Bronston's story by Rainer Hauptmann (German and English)

Director John Landis about "The Fall of the Roman Empire". "It's Bad but Big. They don't make 'em like this anymore: those huge sets and cast of thousands aren't computer-generated but absolutely real, and those 1964-era actors are a darn sight more interesting than a lot of those we have on hand today."

 
 
Here’s a photo of a 230mm Focal Length lens that was made and used on “Ben Hur”. Image by Tak Miyagishima

These early Camera 65 lenses were all engraved as having a power of 1.33X but were never used having that power. In the midst of the design stage MGM realized that their goal of a 3.00:1 aspect ratio was too wide for the theaters they had in mind to show their productions. So they once again approached us to change the anamorphic power to 1.25X. This still gave them an aspect ratio of 2.75:1 the widest aspect ratio.
