“Far and Away”: The 70mm Engagements
“He left behind everything he knew for the only thing he ever wanted.”

Compiled by: Michael CoateDate: 21.09.2017
The following is a reference / historical listing of the 70-millimeter presentations of “Far and Away” in North America. The film’s 70mm prints consisted of full-frame imagery sourced from Panavision System 65 (65mm) photography. The audio was Six-Track Dolby Stereo.

“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. The Brian Grazer/Imagine production and Universal release — directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman — opened May 22nd.

For the release of “Far and Away”, Universal employed the services of Lucasfilm’s Theater Alignment Program (TAP) to evaluate and approve the cinemas selected to book a 70mm print.

Trailers for “Housesitter” and “Death Becomes Her” circulated with the “Far and Away” prints and which the distributor recommended be screened with the presentation.

Many of the following 70mm presentations were also shown in a sneak preview screening on May 9th and/or 16th.
