By Borden Mace

"The Empire Strikes Back"
By Coate and Kallay
What is noteworthy about the release of "The Empire Strikes Back" with regard to the 70mm presentation format is that the film was (at the time) distributed with a record number of large-format prints for a saturation, non-roadshow-type release, eclipsing the record set the previous year by "Alien".

"Where the Trains Used to Go"
By Morten Skallerud
I love trains. I love Large Format, and I love making magic on film. "Where the Trains used to go" gave me an opportunity to combine the three for a 4½ minute 15perf 70mm "magic journey" along the remains of a closed-down narrow-gauge railway.
