What i said what i knew was true…and yes i do know the answer to my question…what i was getting at that you missed was…i asked you know the real tech side ie: expert on numbers..when you were
talking about, Aug 17 8:07 Cinerama 2.65, 2.76 etc.
Cinerama vs Todd A-0 D-150..After 35 years just wanted confirm what i knew….i thought you could do that and not take a shot at me…

William
I was mgr. of the Rivoli NY. home of Mike Todd’s TODD-AO….what i remember, whatever the movie 35mm or 70mm it was on the D-150 screen.
It sounds like you know more about tech side of all this…
My question is wasn’t this more about the lens…Todd A-O whatever
film you project through the lens shows up equal on a D-150 screen?
thanks

When RKO ran it was Cinerama, Penthouse and Orleans around the corner.

When did it become and by who did it become Cinerama 1 & 2…

[good for you], wasn’t a cut, if you read the last line
of your post “ i grew up in islip ”….and would hate
theater turned into something else etc.
it was the strong feelings you have for the islip theater and your town…as do i..see posts from feb 10th 2007…
