The following was sent in by William Kallay about his research project with Michael Coate that details the history of 70mm screenings in NY from 1955 to 2004:
“Dear Cinema Treasures Readers,
After years of research, Michael Coate and I are proud to announce that ‘70mm In NY’ has been posted on our site, www.fromscripttodvd.com.
“We’ve included a number of interesting features about "70mm In NY,” including an introductory article about the history of 70mm In NY; a theatre list of 70mm equipped houses; a list of the longest running 70mm engagements in NY, and much, much more.
We feel the most exciting part of the site is the list of 70mm engagements. You can click on any year from 1955 through 2004 and find out information on which films played in the NYC-region in 70mm.
As we’ve seen on this wonderful site, there are quite a few 70mm fans from the New York/New Jersey region, and we hope that you will enjoy this look back on 70mm presentation in your area.
There are some sections of “70mm In NY” that are coming soon, so we please check back.
