70mm in Rochester, NY?
I’m trying to research 70mm engagements in my hometown with the help of the info posted by Michael Coate and Bill Kallay on in70mm and From Script to DVD. Mike has also asked me to help with his Cinerama project and that info should be posted within a few weeks.
Mainly what I’m looking for is information on any possible 70mm engagements in the late 80s/early 90s, as the local newspapers stopped advertising sound systems (Dolby/stereo/70mm) in their film ads around 1989. Before then, most 70mm runs were prominently mentioned in the Democrat & Chronicle/Times-Union. (At least that’s what the microfilm says…)
As far as I know, there was a 70mm run of “The Untouchables” in June 1987 and then not another one until “Dick Tracy” in 1990.
Any info on other 70mm runs is also welcome (mainly the 70s and mid-80s, as I’ve researched most of the 1960s roadshow runs). Memories are, of course, appreciated. Thanks!
