Two DP70 (838+851) from Columbia/Curzon West End, London summer 1998. 851 is for spares. The machine has been rebuilt and will function as a dual gauge, showing all normal aspects (35mm) as well as 70mm.  The new lamphouse is a Strong Ultra 80 with 4k of light.  The machine has a new motor, a new invertor and new control electronics, SRD penthouse (35mm), DTS (35 and 70mm) + six track mag.  Sound is Dolby CP500, Dolby mag. preamps, 4 channels to stage (L/C/R/S) 6 channels of A type noise reduction. The projector also is water cooled and the nw screen (38 ft wide) has  moveable side and top masking.  Scope and 70 share common width.  Lenses from Isco.

June 2012 update: DP70 in Cinema 1 out of service and removed Tuesday 5th June 2012. Now in storage with its sister, which was never installed but I believe was used for some parts and is incomplete. Two new matched Cinemeccanica Vic 8s (older design) have been procured from Australia (the IFI engineer is from there) and are currently being installed. Last 70mm film on the IFI DP70: "Terminator 2: Judgement Day", Sunday 20th May 2012. Brian Guckian
