Herbert Born, Filmtheater Schauburg welcomes you to the 15th Todd-AO Festival at the Schauburg CINERAMA in October, 2019.

KARLSRUHE, May 2019 / in70mm.com news. We have started planning of the 15th instalment of the “Todd-AO 70mm Festival“ to be held in 4 - 6 October 2019 at the Schauburg Cinerama in Karlsruhe, in the south West of Germany. The 15th Festival is the annual appreciation of 70mm wide film presented on a very wide and curved screen just as Mike Todd envisioned Todd-AO to be in 1952.

Old classics, rarely seen epics and popular titles, short films, as well as some of the latest releases in the grandest of formats, in the splendour of 7OMM.

For three days in October Filmtheater Schauburg celebrates the world of LARGE FORMAT film, by offering a series of epic films in 70mm - the Ultra HD of film formats. The Todd-AO Festival at the Schauburg is about going to the movies in style. Seeing the films at the Schauburg is like seeing the films as they were originally presented - in a big cinema, on a huge curved screen with red curtains. It's all about showmanship and presentation, and very few cinemas today - if any - do it better than the staff of the Schauburg.

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, Norway, Czech Republic, USA, Japan, Sweden and France - and hopefully many more. Some films are in their original English versions and some "70mm Vintage Classics", are dubbed into German. Due to the age of the prints, many have lost their color and are faded. But they are ORIGINAL premiere 70mm prints from the 1960s. Like all modern cinemas, The Schauburg enjoys the benefits and advantages of digital projection technology, but the "Todd-AO Festival Policy" is simple. NO DIGITAL! No compromise at the Schauburg where 70mm is concerned! That is our Todd-AO Festival hall mark, as we honour more than 60 years of 70mm projectionist tradition, and present films as they were meant to be presented, on genuine 70MM film, done by real people.

From vintage classics to the latest Roadshow 70mm films, all of which proudly carry trade names of large format motion picture processes. The festival is much more than 70mm films. Enjoy Schauburg's famous breakfast buffet, listen to lectures and witness a special section with rarely seen 70mm short films. On Friday night, festival sponsor the local brewery Hoepfner traditionally hosts a ”Hoepfner Get together” with free beers. Included in the ticket is also the 40-48 page full-color printed souvenir program especially made for the Todd-AO Festival. It includes detailed information and pictures of the films shown, as well as an article or two, relevant to the weekend. A treasure to take home and keep. All free of charge and included in the festival ticket.

One of very few original cinemas, still equipped with 70mm projectors. A new Harkness screen was installed in 2015. The screen is 16,15 meters wide along the curve, screen chord is 14 meters, Todd-AO height is 6,4 meters, and the depth of the screen is 3,45 meters. Projection distance is 23,8 meters, radius is 8,8 meters and screen curvature is approximately 105 degrees. The curved screen has both vertical and horizontal moveable masking and covered with a "Cinerama red" curtain.

• "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.

All 70mm films will be projected by vintage and historically correct Philips DP70 and DP75 projectors. Magnetic sound reproduction by SCS preamplifiers, sound format dependent noise reduction by Dolby A/SR circuits. Auditorium sound presentation by state of the art Alcon speakers.

"No expenses are spared to give you the very best experience.", says Herbert Born, and he continues: "It is a Harkness Perlux 140 with a 1,4 gain which helps to reduce the cross reflections of the deeply curved Cinerama screen at the Schauburg."
