Larger Than Life: 70MM


Some Films in this series are at the Aero Theatre!


Seeing a movie in the 70mm format is a totally immersing and even exhilarating experience. From Super Technirama 70 to Ultra Panavision to Dimension 150 and more, the 70mm large-screen format has always promised – and delivered – a Barnum-esque world of spectacular sights and 6-track sounds. From 1955 to 1970 – the Golden Age of 70mm filmmaking – there were nearly 60 Hollywood features shot in large-format, with many more released in special engagements as 35mm-to-70mm blow-ups (which still offered sound and image quality superior to their 35mm counterparts).

This time around we’ll be screening 70mm prints of Oscar-winning and Oscar-nominated films. Please join us for WEST SIDE STORY, LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, SILVERADO, VERTIGO, IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY and, in honor of James Cameron’s recent return to box office domination, TITANIC!



Friday, March 5 – 7:30 PM
