8th Todd-AO Festival at the Schauburg
October 5-7, 2012

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: Born/Hauerslev, Schauburg Cinerama Theatre, Karlsruhe, Germany Date: 04.09.2012
KARLSRUHE, Sep 4, 2012 / in70mm.com news. We have launched the 8th instalment of the “Todd-AO 70mm Festival“ to be held from 5 - 7 October 2012 at the Schauburg in Karlsruhe, Germany. For three days in October Filmtheater Schauburg celebrates the world of LARGE FORMAT film, by offering a series of epic films in 70mm - the HD of film formats. A variety of old 70mm films with a GALA performance of Robert Wise's 70mm masterpiece "West Side Story" on Saturday evening. Some films are in their original versions and some "70mm Vintage Classics", are dubbed into German.

Once again spectacular large format process names like CINERAMA, Super Technirama 70, Todd-AO, Panavision 70, Dynamation, Sovscope 70 and Super Panavision 70 will light up on the large 18 meter curved Cinerama screen.

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.
Join us and be part of this unique event and share the excitement together with visitors from all around the world - including Austria, Switzerland, Holland, Germany, Denmark, England, USA and France - and hopefully many more.

2012 marks the 35th anniversary of 70mm Dolby Stereo. We present two 70mm films in BOOMING 6-track Dolby Stereo to celebrate 35 years of GREAT sound.

2012 is also the 60th anniversary of CINERAMA, and the Schauburg takes great pride in showing some 70mm versions of films presented "in CINERAMA".

We are also very proud to have a Norwegian 70mm short film, two rare Disney 70mm short films and a vintage Russian short film on the program. Short films are rarely seen in cinemas any more, but we proudly show them.

Filmtheater Schauburg & Why is 70mm so special?

The Filmtheater Schauburg. Image by Thomas Hauerslev

One of very few original cinemas, still equipped with 70mm projectors. The huge screen is wide, curved and covered by a "Cinerama red" curtain. It’s the perfect framework to present 70mm with 6-track sound in Super Technirama 70, Todd-AO and Ultra Panavision 70.

"in 70mm"
is unlike anything you have ever seen - a High Definition movie experience with extremely sharp images and crystal clear 6 track stereo.

"in 70mm"
 is very realistic, almost three dimensional and can make everything you have ever seen pale into insignificance. But don't take our word for it - come and see for your self.

What the audience think of the program

That is a very tempting programme, especially the Napoleon bit.

Mark Lyndon, London (Strohmaier and Gitsch - in conversation with Mark Lyndon)

Looks good!
