70MM “Death on the Nile” screening report in ARCADIA Cinema Melzo (Milan), Italy

Written by: Francesco Gualeni (70MM films patron). Pictures by Francesco Gualeni and Laura Fumagalli Date: 25.02.2022
Special giveaways (exclusive poster “I’ve seen in 70MM in ARCADIA”, caps, luggage tags, bookmarks) were handed out.

After more than a year of waiting due to the release being postponed several times, on Friday the 11th of February 2022, I have finally attended a special 70MM screening of Kenneth Branagh’s “Death on the Nile” at ARCADIA Cinema Melzo (Milan). ARCADIA Energy Screen is the Premium Large Format theatre within the Melzo flagship cinema location. It is the only one commercial cinema in Italy and among the very few in the world (around 30) to screen “Death on the Nile” in the wonderful 70MM film format.

With its impressive 30 meters wide huge screen and Meyer Sound speakers throughout the sides, rear screen and top ceiling, Sala Energia is the perfect place to enjoy such a movie. I was informed from Laura that the print had arrived to ARCADIA from Fotokem Lab in Los Angeles in 7 reels with a total weight of 80 kilos. Piero Fumagalli himself, ARCADIA’s owner and 70MM films enthusiast, had assembled the cores into the film reel which I’ve admired ready on the platter during my visit to the booth before the screening. Piero personally screens every show out of his over 40 years 70MM film projection experience and same inspiring passion.

As usual at premieres, many patrons have participated wearing Thirties vintage clothings inspired by the movie.

The quality of the print was outstanding with deep blacks and a very warm color palette. For the screening, they are using the Cinemeccanica Victoria 8 ZX10000H film projector (in Energy booth, there’s also a DP70 projector and two Christie Digital 4K dual-stack projectors outfitted with Cinemeccanica laser-light source). As it always happens, “Death on the Nile” is being screened in 70MM both in Italian dubbed for the vast majority of showtimes and also with weekly showtimes in Original Version with Italian subtitles.

Even though it is set in Egypt, the movie was mainly shot in England at Longcross Studios (where “Murder on the Orient Express” was also shot) and the wizards of post-production then inserted all the Egyptian backdrops. With all these digital effects the photography is sometimes a bit flat but the use of the 65mm negative gives a depth and a warmth feeling that digital still doesn't have, especially in the close-ups of the actors and the interiors of Karnak steamer.

At ARCADIA, Laura and her team had organized a special premiere on the 10th of February. As usual at premieres, many patrons have participated wearing Thirties vintage clothings inspired by the movie, special giveaways (exclusive poster “I’ve seen in 70MM in ARCADIA”, caps, luggage tags, bookmarks) were handed out and a post screening audience reactions video was shot. Here’s the video of the event by their media partner, movie website: badtaste.it

ARCADIA is always at the forefront of providing its audience with unique experiences on the big screen. It was such a great privilege for me to go back to the cinema for a true Cinematic special screening after so much home content viewing during the pandemic. 70MM has fully reminded me the big difference of such different viewing contexts. Now we are all looking forward to seeing the new Christopher Nolan film "Oppenheimer" obviously in 70MM in 2023.
