Detroit Mercury Theatre (*╗)
  1350 seats
Detroit Redford Theatre (P)
  Two DP70 (2098+2100) with the base numbers 6377 and 6418. Machines coming from Detroit United Artists. They were removed from Summit Theatre Detroit (built 1927 as the Cass) to the Redford. I am not sure if they are the UA machines or not.

Picture from Redford Theatre

At the Redford we once speeded a projector up to 30 fps and played a reel of a very pink "Oklahoma!" with the corresponding Cinemascope reel in the other projector. It was interesting switching back and forth to see how much better the cinematography was in the CinemaScope 35mm version. Sound was unbelievably good on the 70mm print. Like "The Robe" there were a number of incidental differences between the two. Also the 35mm flat version of "The Robe" was better viewing than the CinemaScope version. There must have been a committee on both sets repeating "be very careful of the new equipment", and once the first take was done they ignored the second crew, who made use of more and better setups without extra panic supervision over their shoulders. Bill Frisk, 12.05.2013

  During "Around the World in 80 Days", 1957

The United Artists closed in 1971 and the Summit got 70mm in 1965. I am theorizing it is a different pair of projectors.
