SET THE ASPECT RATIO TO STUN: MOVIES IN 70MM

August 3 – September 1, 2013, at the Aero Theatre

From Super Technirama 70 to Ultra Panavision to Dimension 150 and more, the 70mm large-screen format promised - and delivered - a Barnum-esque world of spectacular sights and 6-track sounds. If the movies were always larger-than-life, then 70mm movies were much much larger - from LAWRENCE OF ARABIA to WEST SIDE STORY to VERTIGO. From 1955 to 1970, 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 superior sound and image quality to their 35mm counterparts).

Along with IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD and THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN IN THEIR FLYING MACHINES from the Golden Age of 70mm, films such as LIFEFORCE, BLACK RAIN, 1492: CONQUEST OF PARADISE, BARAKA and last year’s THE MASTER show the enduring appeal of stunning, larger-than-life imagery. Experience 70mm as it was meant to be seen: on a big, beautiful screen, with booming, multichannel sound!
