BIGGER THAN LIFE: 70MM!

December 8-11, 29 & 30, 2011, at the Egyptian and Aero Theatres

Seeing a movie in the 70mm format is a totally immersive, even exhilarating experience. From Super Technirama 70 to Ultra Panavision to Dimension 150 and more, the 70mm large-screen format has always promised - and delivered - a Barnum-esque world of spectacular sights and 6-track sounds. From 1955 to 1970 - the Golden Age of 70mm filmmaking - there were nearly 60 Hollywood features shot in large-format, with many more released in special engagements as 35mm-to-70mm blow-ups (which still offered sound and image quality superior to their 35mm counterparts).

This time around we’ll be screening 70mm prints of LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, VERTIGO, IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD, LAST ACTION HERO, CLIFFHANGER, HOOK, PLAYTIME and 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.

Series compiled by Grant Moninger and Gwen Deglise.
