This was a thrill
"West Side Story", Royal Cinema, Malmø, Sweden in March 2008

When I started to think about what to show this year I finally decided that "West Side Story" was the one. I had no idea then that it would be so popular around the world on 70mm-festivals and even a new stage production on Broadway.

So, I was really happy thinking I made the right choice. BUT it started off really slow. Not many seemed interested so I feared this would be the last 70mm-screening at the Royal. Well, enjoy it as long as possible and then there will be other festivals to attend.......... Copenhagen is very close and then we have Bradford and Karlsruhe not too far away.

But then, all of a sudden, it took off and eventually we were 416 happy 70mm-lovers at the Royal on March 22, 11am. WOW!!! What a day.

We had guest from all around Skåne. From Gothenburg, Stockholm and other parts of Sweden. And of course we had our group from Denmark. Not to forget one guest from the US.

The print was a bit faded and red, but Roland Håkansoon, the 70mm projectionist and Jeppe, the head projectionist at the Royal did a great job.

The coffee-girls in the foyer: Susanne, Lilian and Maria also did a great job both before, after and in the intermission. Thank you very much all of you. Thank you Bo and Gevalia for the coffee. Thank you Anders and DHL for the transport, Radiocity Audio Video for posters, Caroline Nilsson and Sydsvenska Dagbladet for ads, SF Bio and

And of course all you dear guests. What would it have been without you. You all together made the day unforgettable.

So, already now, thanks to you all, you can book Sunday March 14, 2010 for the next 70mm-screening at the Royal.

What we'll show I don't know yet, but the date is decided and the Royal is booked. Welcome to celebrate the 49th anniversary of the Royal.
