Closed in 1969 advertising the new twin in Five Towns

I saw GWTW in 70mm and agree but I think they could print it 70mm and leave it in the academy ratio and you would have a very sharp square picture but the whole idea was to simulate widescreen.

Notice Loews is pried off the marquee and the vertical must have ended as an indie

This is great news. I just hope they are more successful then the Plaza in Corona that tried a similar idea.

Go back to 100 foot screens to overwhelm people. The ways movies should be seen.
