    What do you mean by 'discrete ' prints? I am baffled. I saw LOGAN'S RUN, and A STAR IS BORN (1976) in 70mm as well as SERGEANT PEPPER"S etc in 70mm at the NYC Rivoli on their D150 screen.

    Discrete means the old Todd AO format or Dolby Format 40.

    That version has been on TCM HD before. It does look very nice.

    Discrete= 5 full range screen channels. Dolby Baby Boom = 3 full range screen channels (L, C, R) and 2 low-frequency channels.

    I first saw this at the Plaza in Melbourne in Cinerama as a four year old in 1964. Had a big impact on me (We also saw HOW THE WET WAS WON there). The scene in which the very ill Laurence Harvey hallucinates and sees his fairy tale characters around his sick bed (inc. Russ Tamblyn reprising his 1958 role of Tom Thumb) greatly disturbed me for weeks afterwards
    I next saw it in 16mm in the late '70's in CinemaScope. A little faded brown but generally very good
    I have the US LD, but would love to get the Japanese one as I think the print utilized (and broadcast on TCM) is much better.( i may have to rob a bank to pay for this, however.)
    Would love a proper Blu Ray release, even if just taken from that master, impefect as it may be. Better than nothing!

    I saw WWOTBG in Auckland back in 1964 and later several times in Sydney,Australia. (in Cinerama every time). Now I can only watch it on dvd but that is better than nothing at all. If it were ever restored for future generations to cherish,it would need to be seen in Cinerama just like it was originally intended to be seen. I would have loved to have seen it in NYC at the Capitol Cinema. Their massive Cinerama screen was truly incredible-my all time favourite cinema. Where else in the world would you have to cross over a Japanese bridge with running water beneath, in order to get to the auditorium?That was such an incredible experience that to-day's audiences can never experience.How many other HTF readers ever saw a movie at the Capitol in NYC?Such memories are never forgotten.

    I find most April Fool's Day jokes to be in poor taste.

    Cinemiracle did you see 2001 in '77 at the Rivoli on its D150 screen? How did that compare to the Capitol presentation?

    I only ever saw SAND PEBBLES and SERGEANT PEPPER'S etc in 70mm at the Rivoli. I also only ever saw THE DIRTY DOZEN in 70mm at the Capitol. Never saw any other film at these two cinemas.I was only visiting NYC from overseas at the time. On most of my 7 trips to NYC I went to see live theatre every night and matinees as well. As an actor I preferred theatre to cinema.I also worked in many cinemas (5 in total) and had to endure SOUND OF MUSIC every night, on our 60 ft TODD-AO screen for 41 weeks. As good as SOM was,it was not my favourite musical.

    Well as much as I like SOM even I would consider that a bit much.

    How lucky you were. You probably got to see a lot of great theater in NY in the 60s and you got to see the Capitol!

    SOM is one of my “only watch if tied up with a gun to my head” movies now. I never liked it much to begin with, but it, like several others (“Fiddler On The Roof”) have been watched so many times that they have long ago worn out their welcome, and I am a “musical nut”).

    It wouldn't be one of my favorite, either, if I had to slog through that many showings of it.

    Dave Strohmaier was on a recent Nitrateville podcast and he indicated GRIMM is still in rights hell with no movement by Warner. He also confirmed he is retired, but didn't exactly rule out coming out of retirement just in case a miracle happened on GRIMM. Very interesting listen overall (the GRIMM update is towards the end though).

    I hope you were in an appropriately "altered state of consciousness" for Sgt. Pepper. That one's a a tough slog, even for "so bad it's good" types like me.

    Hated the film but I would see anything on the Rivoli's huge D150 screen in 70mm. I managed to see 181 feature films protected in 70mm and 11 short films..(Excluding Imax films).Saw a couple of shorts in Showscan and several on a completely circular screen- one of which was in 3-D Thankfully all were on celluloid.Most unusual short seen in 70mm was one that was projected onto a small waterfall.

    Did they use the D-150 lenses at lot for 70mm as i know D-150 corp only liked the cinema to use them on D-150 films and we all know there were only 2 features shot in that format.
