A 1986 picture
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.
Jolie in 70mm
Notice Loews is pried off the marquee and the vertical must have ended as an indie
Here are some pics I had of the Meadowbrook when my friends worked there.
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 finally dug out and scanned some pics of the Columbia from a night it hosted a live bodybuilding show.

The outer lobby display cases
The imortal yellow wall
I have opening night of La Bamba pics which i will scan and post when I locate them.
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.
I have loads of pictures of the Haven I just need to find time to scan them.
The type of 1970’s feature that AlAlvarez talks about 2 posts up
Alan Ladd on screen and Miss Peggy Lee on stage
My prayers are with you.
Does India still use 70mm on a regular basis?
Disney at the Music Hall
The glory days
A great 50’s double bill
Here is another shot
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.
Hollywood Premiere of Cleopatra
The last days
What a travesty we lost this theatre :(
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.
