The 70mm-Equipped Cinemas in North America (1985)

The 70mm Newsletter
Compiled by: Michael Coate Date: 23.10.2021
Northpoint Theatre, San Francisco May 1980, courtesy Dolby Labs

Have you ever wondered how many North American cinemas were capable of screening 70mm prints during the peak period of the format?

• Go to The 70mm-Equipped Cinemas in North America (1960)
• Go to The 70mm-Equipped Cinemas in North America (1970)
• Go to The 70mm-Equipped Cinemas in North America (1992)
• Go to
The 70mm-Equipped Cinemas in North America (2015)

Which year was the peak year for 70mm, though? In terms of number of titles released with 70mm prints, the answer appears to be the year 1985 with twenty-three confirmed titles (plus at least six holdovers from late 1984, along with two re-releases utilizing extant prints, and at least eight difficult/impossible-to-verify titles other historians have cited in their works).

In terms of the number of prints struck, the answer appears to be the year 1984 with approximately 900 prints between sixteen confirmed titles, with about half of that output released late in the year and playing into the early months of 1985.

So, the conclusion to be drawn here is that the mid-1980s ought to be considered the peak period for 70mm (as an exhibition format) and the point in time the industry was a well-oiled machine in regard to large format in so far as exhibitor and studio support and the film laboratories’ ability to manufacture large 70mm print runs in a timely fashion.

*Two (or more) screens in complex equipped with 70mm capability


There are possibly some venues cited in this work that during timeframe being studied no longer possessed the ability to screen 70mm because the once-installed gear had been removed and decommissioned or relocated to another venue. The still-open status (in 1985) of these venues and the lack of any confirmation of such a removal situation may explain the inclusion.

IMAX and other large format special venue installations have not been cited. In addition, it is possible some such venues at the time may have had the ability to also screen 5-70 prints.

Venues known to have closed during the 1985 calendar year have been included.

Studio and private screening room shave not been included.

In the case of venues that during the 1985 calendar year incurred an ownership change or renovation resulting in additional auditoria, effort has been made to cite such details based upon the venue’s status at end of the year.

The Cineplex Odeon chain acquired (most of) the Plitt chain in 1985 though the name change did not immediately take effect which explains the retained usage of the Plitt name for the applicable venues.
