70mm Film Presentations in London, England 1958 - 2021
.. in 70mm and 6-track magnetic stereophonic sound

All 70mm film lists
Compiled by: Mr. John Sharp, London. Projectionist - retired Date: 30.04.1999
Updated 14-01-21
Tickets thanks for David Page's collection

This is the story of a Golden Age. An era of opulence, glamour, glitz and grandeur. It was the best of times. The technology that drove this epoch was of course, 70mm projection. London's West End was especially blessed with first run 70mm screenings in the most beautiful picture theatres, as they were described at that time. That special time ran from the late fifties to the end of the sixties and I was especially blessed to be part of it. 70mm was and is the gold standard of cinema, a standard which has yet to be equalled, let alone surpassed.
