Part 2: The Engagements

 
The (majority of the) titles cited below were presented in 70-millimeter and with some flavor of six-track stereophonic sound. The Cinerama-branded 70mm presentations during the 1963-69 period are noted as [“Cinerama”]. Details pertaining to origination format (i.e. 65mm or 35mm blow-up) are not addressed since the listing is meant to be an exhibition-based chronology.

The “roadshows” have been listed with an asterisk. These were reserved-seat engagements with advanced pricing and limited, scheduled showtimes (typically ten-per-week or two-a-day). Souvenir programs were usually sold and often the presentations included an overture, intermission, entr’acte, and exit music. Many of the roadshows were actually screened in a 35mm presentation (rather than in 70mm) and effort has been made to identify these with a “35mm” notation or with a double asterisk whenever the projection process could not be determined or was vaguely or ambiguously addressed in promotional material.

The duration of the engagements, measured in weeks, is included in parenthesis for some of the entries.

IMAX and other special venue presentations have not been included.

m/o = a move-over engagement (i.e. a continuation of a booking from another theater)

Part 3: which 70mm releases did not play *in 70mm* in San Jose?

 
Here is a listing of movies with a confirmed 70mm release in North America that played the San Jose market only in 35mm (or not at all). Titles marked with an asterisk played the San Jose area in 70mm only during a second run or revival booking. (The 1955-1963 70mm releases have been excluded since San Jose lacked any 70mm-equipped theaters during that period.)
