Written by: By Darren Briggs, Technical Manager City Screen Cinemas LTD.  Date: 1. October 2004
As you may know, City Screen York has, for two years, been regularly presenting 70mm films to the highest possible standards.

Other 70mm City Screen installations include The Arts Picturehouse Cambridge, Harbour Lights Southampton, and now Picturehouse @ FACT in Liverpool.

70mm presentations commenced here with "Lawrence of Arabia" in 2003, followed by the "Indiana Jones Trilogy", "Earthquake" (in Sensurround) and most recently "Vertigo".

It is our intention to continue with regular 70mm presentations both as late night and Sunday matinees.

The attached pictures give some impressions of these 70mm screenings and projection team training sessions at Liverpool.
