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

I just scanned some pics of the Columbia and did this one of the Cinemart Marquee from its twin days.

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

I think I saw Zoot Suit at the Rivoli, not sure if they ran it in 70mm.

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

These psuedo IMAX screens are cheapening the format. When will anyone realize they need to once again give the public something that home TV (even the large ones) can’t duplicate. Theatre screens need to be huge curved ones like in the 50’s and 60’s.

Have been going here all my life since it was a Walter Reade art house. Used to have a beautiful waterfall curtain as a single screen.
