"Murder on the Orient Express" Production Information
By 20th Century Fox
What starts out as a lavish train ride through Europe quickly unfolds into one of the most stylish, suspenseful and thrilling mysteries ever told. From the novel by best-selling author Agatha Christie, “Murder on the Orient Express” tells the tale of thirteen strangers stranded on a train, where everyone’s a suspect. World-renowned detective Hercule Poirot must race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again. Kenneth Branagh directs and leads an all-star cast including Penelope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley and Josh Gad.

Louis de Rochemont's "Windjammer" in Cinemiracle
Installation and Operating Procedures
By R. H. McCullough
Cinemiracle uses a triple camera, using three 35 millimeter negatives. This results in the filming of a scene under a triple angle. Such a method gives, in principle, a vision in wide angle in the projection system, similar to that which one has in real life. Cinemiracle is a system of photography and projection developed by National Theatres Amusement Company and first used by Louis de Rochemont in the production of "Windjammer".

Cinemiracle Theatre Survey
By R. H. McCullough
Attached is a list of 205 theatres in the United States which have been surveyed for Cinemiracle. Out of this number of houses 102 are suitable for the Cinemiracle process. There are several things to be considered in selecting a theatre for Cinemiracle. The theatre must be in good condition. Sometimes a small house with a large screen will be a great success. Huge houses with a large seating capacity and heavy overhead should be avoided.

Faded 70mm prints have their own special magic
By Thomas Hauerslev
Welcome to the thirteenth edition of the Todd-AO Festival here at the prestigious Schauburg Cinerama in Karlsruhe. It seems 13 is our lucky number this September. What started in 2005 with this catch line: "Come celebrate with us a BIG weekend, with a BIG film format on a BIG screen", has now entered it's teenage years. The catch line is still valid, and in 12 years, and 13 festivals later, the Schauburg has built up a core audience who comes back year after year.

Todd-AO Festival Film Introductions, 2017
By Wolfram Hannemann
Welcome to our celluloid extravaganza, at the Schauburg Cinerama in Karlsruhe! I will be your anchorman for this weekend. As such I will tell you bits and pieces about the films before each screening and I will do this in German and English. To make it a little bit more interesting let me tell you that I won’t repeat myself. So the things I am telling you in German will be different from the things I am telling you in English.
“Solomon and Sheba”: The 70mm Engagements
By Mike Coate
70-millimeter presentations of “Solomon and Sheba” in North America. The film’s 70mm prints consisted of full-frame imagery derived from Super Technirama photography and featured discrete six-channel stereophonic sound. These were arguably the best cinemas in which to experience this film.
“The Last Valley”: The 70mm Engagements
By Mike Coate
“The Last Valley” was among four confirmed first-run films released in 1971 with 70mm prints for selected engagements. The ABC/Cinerama release was directed by James Clavell and starred Michael Caine and Omar Sharif. These were continuous performance, general release bookings (i.e. not roadshow…although roadshow style program booklets were made available).
“Far and Away”: The 70mm Engagements
By Mike Coate
“Far and Away” was among ten confirmed first-run films released in 1992 with 70mm prints for selected engagements. One-hundred sixty-three 70mm prints of the film were reportedly struck for distribution in North America, which places it among the industry’s ten-highest large-format print orders in history and the highest in Universal Studios’ history.

WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID ABOUT IN70MM.COM
I continue to be impressed by the dedication you have to the continuing wellbeing of 70mm. I would like you to have met my colleague and friend, the late Robert Gottschalk, founder and driving force of Panavision. He was of the unshakeable opinion that picture quality, real picture QUALITY, depended on a big piece of negative, the bigger the better.

All good wishes, Sir Sydney Samuelson, December 2009

Todd-AO How It All Began
By Brian O'Brien, Jr.
Finally, he called one night and said "OK Doctor, I give up. I have been looking into the companies you mentioned and American Optical looks like the best bet. What do I do now?" "Fine" said my dad, "I am having lunch with Walter Stewart, President of AO next Tuesday. Why do you not come up to Southbridge and have lunch with us?".

Margaret Honda's 70mm short, "Spectrum Reverse Spectrum"
By Gerhard Witte
"Spectrum Reverse Spectrum" is a camera-less film made by exposing 70mm print stock to precisely calibrated colored light in a film printe. The subjective visual effects of the film, enhanced by the size and brilliance of 70mm projection, make you aware of the act of watching and so remind you of the body you inhabit.
