    For some reason, KRULL has me interested, as does TOTAL RECALL. Maybe it's because I haven't seen them in 70mm, while I have with 2001, Ghostbusters, and LoA.

    "This Is Cinerama" and "How The West Was Won" will be projected in 35mm...... times 3 (which means sharper and brighter images then 70mm). Original 3 camera/projector Cinerama, not 70mm.

    Oh yes, it's "Oklahoma!" not "Oklahoma". [​IMG]

    "Oklahoma!" was filmed in Arizona.

    Wish I could be in Seattle those days.

    Edit: Wish came true.

    Damnit... I hate you northerners with your 70mm movies.

    What I'd give to see Lawrence of Arabia projected in 16mm [​IMG]

    I've scheduled Lawrence of Arabia at the restored Lafayette Theatre in Suffern, New York on March 1-4 (35mm, Dolby SR stereo). It ain't 70mm, but it'll still look bigger than the DVD [​IMG]

    Anyone seeing these films today, please post your opinion on the condition of the prints. I would love to go see Ghostbusters and Krull in 70mm but if the prints are as bad as the Raiders of the Lost Arc were last year then I will pass.

    I may try and catch the 3:00 showing of LOA

    I am working nights right now, so...4-5 hours of sleep starting here in a few minutes...4 hours of LOA and then 8 hours of work...I think I can do it?

    I noticed on the cinerama website, it stated the following:

    Part of the charm of the widescreen film format is screening films that have not been viewed often. These prints are archival and therefore their condition cannot be guaranteed.

    That statement kinda scares me....

    Another thing, I have never seen a film in 70mm before...what can I expect?

    I saw Lawrence of Arabia today. It was a really great experience! The theater was packed, the screen was BIG, and the print looked great for the most part.
