The brand new TIFF Bell Lightbox, home of the Toronto International Film Festival just opened September 12, 2010. Of the 5 Cinemas, Cinema 1 which seats 549 and can show 70mm films.
They say it’s the “only 70mm screening facility in Canada” I take that to mean they plan to be screening 70mm pretty much all the time. Anyone know if they plan to continue this plan?

SIR DAVID LEAN—MOTORCYCLIST BY SUEZ CANAL
THE GREATEST OF ALL GREAT SPRAWLING EPICS, Sir David Lean’s Academy Award-winning account of British officer T.E. Lawrence’s efforts to unify the nomadic desert tribes against the Ottoman Turks during World War I is equal parts war film and existential romance, as the arid expanses of the desert draw the British adventurer into its beckoning, soul, soul-stirring emptiness. OVERLAID WITH MAURICE JARRE’S UNFORGETTABLE SCORE, an inordinately rich cast-Alec Guinness, Omar Sharif, Anthony Quinn, Claude Rains, and of course Peter O'Toole, who became an instant star as the eccentric and inscrutable Lawrence-and exquisite renderings of the vast, shimmerings sands by Freddie Young’s magnificent cinematography, LAWRENCE OF ARABIA is as big as larger-than-life cinema gets.

Why can’t cities larger than Toronto, like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami and Phiadelphia do what Toronto is doing with 70mm?
