If it is of interest it was my good self whom supervised the 70mm installation. I recently found an old list of mine which shows an 80ft throw to a 36'6'‘x16’ Todd screen. (Same as Deansgate, Manchester but they had a 73' throw.) The Peerless did run a larger carbon at about 70A to allow for the 70mm frame size IIRC. I have fond memories of this theatre due to the hospitality of the staff when they even referred to me as ‘their lad’ what with being a Londoner. Famous for people ducking and hitting their heads on the seat in front when the Surrey went under the trees in the film mentioned.
