|"2001:A Space Odyssey" Yet another soundtrack|
By Claus Berthelsen
The HAL monologue montage is a treat, the suite of Ligeti's Requiem, Atmospheres and Adventure is a painstaking musical journey. And the CD as a whole is yet another proof that Kubrick is by far the most daring director in American commercial film. His choice of music is by no means safety first, and it reflects his ability to read and understand the underlying philosophical concept of music, an ability that seems unique if you compare Kubrick's choice of music to the choices made by other American directors of his generation.

|Release of "Hamlet" in 70mm|
"Hamlet" is the first British film in 25 years to be filmed in 65mm. The man charged with capturing the look of the film was cinematographer Alex Thomson. "The fabulous advantage of 70mm is the sharpness of detail it gives, which can look three-dimensional at times"

|Is "Windjammer" the Queen of Kitsch?|
By Fans at the Widescreen Weekend
It is a grand movie! As a colleague of mine in London told me. It must be the queen of kitsch. But it was an incredible experience to see "Windjammer", the film all Norwegians have talked about since the original release in 1958.

|Dimension 150 Visual Display for U.C.L.A. Driving Simulator|

The U.C.L.A. Driving Simulator has been developed as a research tool in the field of highway safety. This simulator is a projection room in which an automobile is driven on steel rollers of a standard chassis dynamometer while the driver views the road scene that is projected onto a curved screen 8.5 ft in radius. The driver also views the road scene behind him by looking through the rear-view mirror at a motion picture projected on a screen placed beyond the rear window of the vehicle. The field of vision of the front view is 150 deg. The projection technique used is a special type of motion picture presentation called Dimension 150

|Misconceptions about the Bradford setup|
By Bill Lawrence
“How The West Was Won” was shown at David’s insistence despite my feelings that the soundtrack was too worn to complete a full screening. However, the major problem with “HTWWW” was that we had to try and carry out a major re-edit on with a different soundtrack to 1996, as well as inserting the English titles. This is a lengthy time-consuming project at the best of times, in the heat of a film festival it is almost impossible. We did not have sufficient time to allow for a rehearsal and checking.

This is the story of one of the greatest cinemas in Sweden. It was called "Vinterpalatset" ("The Winterpalace") and was situated in Stockholm, the lovely capital of Sweden.
|This is Oyster Bay|
By Thomas Hauerslev
After driving around looking for the address we finally found Woodward leading up to Pond Place, and then, number 8. Bingo! Here it was. I felt the history of wide screen blowing in the winds. Thanks to the vision of Fred Waller, it was here Cinerama took shape. This is where the mother of all super wide screen film formats was born.
