KINO Rotterdam to launch exclusive 70mm presentations

The 70mm Newsletter
Pictures and text by: Kino Rotterdam press release Date: 30.06.2020
Commencing July 2nd, KINO Rotterdam presents the introduction of the 70mm film format on its biggest screen. Becoming only the second venue in the Benelux to support the ultimate film experience, starting off with the premiere of Christopher Nolan's latest, "Tenet", on August 12th. To give the projector a test drive and get our audience acquainted with the the format, KINO will screen the majestic space adventure "Interstellar" (2014) in 70mm.

The search for an Academy Award winning filmprojector

The love for cinema is what drives the team behind KINO these past four years and this July the long cherished dream to equip their largest venue with an analogue film projector is finally realized.

"When we committed to the idea to implement 35mm we thought why not go all the way and take it to the next level: 70mm, the golden standard of film projection. So we searched for over a year to acquire a projector, assemble the technical accessories and built a projection booth that would accommodate all this. It's a decision we took with our hearts, not our heads. But as film fanatics it was an easy choice to invest in the best possible cinematic experience for our audience"

-, says film programmer Jan de Vries. The search for the Philips DP70, an Academy Award winning projector led from the US, China, Russia to the United Kingdom and ended in the tiny Dutch village of Geldrop. There they found one in perfect running condition. With the help of many specialized technicians, projectionists and enthusiasts they managed to restore a classic piece of Dutch technical engineering to its former glory to provide this unprecedented cinematic experience in KINO.

70mm: the ultimate film experience

70mm was the format of choice for many helming greats like Stanley Kubrick ("2OO1: A Space Odyssey") and David Lean ("Lawrence of Arabia") but a new generation of authors like Paul Thomas Anderson, Quentin Tarantino and Christopher Nolan have also embraced analogue film as the preferred format to release their films. "The Master", "The Hateful Eight" and "Dunkirk" were all recently released on 70mm. Where digital projection currently clocks out at 4K resolution, the analogue 70mm format can reach up to 16K. The film is projected via millions of small moving crystals instead of stationary pixels, resulting in a warmer image providing more depth and a rich viewing experience.

The future of classic cinema on 70mm in KINO

Exhibiting classics alongside new titles has been a standard in KINO but the programmers are looking forward to screening as many 70mm classics as they can find, in the future.

'It's quite the challenge to find and ship film prints from all over the world to Rotterdam. Besides the fact that a single print can weigh in at 300 kilograms, analogue film is a slowly dying medium. This is because film stock fades and is easily damaged just by usage. But there are many beautiful prints left out there and we'll do our best to get them to KINO'

-, fellow programmer Frank Groot states with resolve. At KINO they believe that experiencing films in the cinema is a universal, timeless experience. Even if a younger generation has grown up with digital projection, analogue still holds that vintage magic of projecting a still image, transforming it into something fluid. An experience they would like to re-introduce to their audience - young and old - with 35mm and 70mm.
