Bill Lawrence, Head of Cinema:
The Widescreen Weekend is a celebration of all that is extraordinary in large format film and has become a highlight on the film festival calendar.

Tony Cutts & Duncan McGregor, Heads of Projection: The
audiences clearly prefer the curve to the flat screen. Generally, we
have a difficult job explaining the difference between the formats and
what film goes on which screen. "Why don't you show this on the curve?" they often ask.

Projecting the Widescreen Weekend
Bill Lawrence, Head of Cinema: I get quite a lot of feed-back from our guests in
the form of letters, e-mails and phone calls. People are very happy, they had a great time
and they think Pictureville Cinema has a nice atmosphere and is a nice place to visit.
They generally have a good time here.

Thomas Hauerslev, Editor The 70mm Newsletter: The Pictureville cinema, the jewel of British cinema in Bradford, West
Yorkshire in the heart of Great Britain, is one of three cinemas
equipped to show
Cinerama in the original 3-strip format.
The huge screen is wide and deeply curved. It’s the perfect framework
to present 70mm with 6-track sound in
Super Technirama 70, Todd-AO and Ultra Panavision 70.

is 70mm so special?
"in 70mm" is unlike anything you have ever seen - a High Definition movie experience with extremely sharp images and crystal clear 6 track stereo.
"in 70mm" is
very realistic, almost three dimensional and can make everything you
have ever seen pale into insignificance.
But don't take our word for it - come and see for your self.
