Time Traveling to the New Neon
By David Joachim
I bought my first class tickets in April of '97 and booked passage for a three day trip. My fellow travelers came from America's East and West coasts, as well as parts of Europe. We shared a common bond: an undying love of the world's greatest widescreen process, Cinerama.
The Miracle of Todd-AO Final review May 1, 1956
Todd-AO's intense feeling of realism and its possibilities for intimacy and emotional participation convinced Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein that this was the medium in which to present on the screen their American classic, "Oklahoma!"
"Mulan" in 70mm at the Hollywood Bowl
By Paul Rayton
The Walt Disney Company had several DTS 70mm prints made of their new animated film "Mulan". We doubt that any further uses of these prints are contemplated, but they were at least being used locally for an invitational premiere on June 5 -- in L.A. at the Hollywood Bowl! The film opened nationwide in the US in 35mm on June 19, 1998.
Mission Report from Widescreen Weekend 1998
By Thomas Hauerslev
The audience often visited the  box/booth to ask the patient projectionists questions about performance and 70mm prints. The projectionist crew, Duncan, Jennifer, Juan and Tony, did a fantastic job working almost around the clock to satisfy the desires of the ever-demanding 70mm aficionados in the assemblage. They all got a rousing round of applause from the audience at the end of Sunday for a job well done.

Jan Jacobsen - His Story
By Bill Shaw
Jan suggested: "I can build a 15-perf 65mm camera. No optical printing will be needed." So, he went to work in his shop in Copenhagen and, within 4 months, showed Graeme a very compact camera, based on a tandem 7-1/2 perf mechanism. On Dec. 3, 1968, Jan delivered the camera to Galt, Ontario, Canada, home of Multiscreen Corporation, the original name of Imax Corporation.
Jan Jacobsen
Gerhard Fromm
Jan Jacobsen, died June 23, 1998 following cancer surgery in a hospital in Augsburg, Germany. He was 81. Highlights of his career include the first IMAX camera, a series of MCS 65mm cameras, the UltraScope lenses and a 360 degree Swiss-O-Rama 65mm camera for a 360 degree cinema

Projecting the Widescreen Weekend
By Thomas Hauerslev
The audience ask about the difference between the curved and flat screen. They are very keen to see what happens on the different screens. Some films are made to be shown on the Cinerama curve, and if it is well done, it looks good and develops a more 3-dimensional aspect. You feel more drawn into the picture. They forget everything else because of the picture in front of them. The audiences clearly prefer the curve to the flat screen.

The Biggest format in the Smallest Cinema
By Thomas Hauerslev
I run 70mm at Biffen for the simple reason I think it is a fabulous format. I like to look at it, it is easy to handle and we can run it. It is a pleasure for me to see a large well-illuminated 70mm image on the screen. And with that large hole in the projector aperture plate, it is easy to punch some light onto the screen. Those are the primary reasons why I run 70mm here.
Jan Jacob Kotte
By Anton Kotte
The most remarkable moment came at the end of a working day in 1963. My father entered our living room, wearing a hat and coat, which was very unusual for him, and told to us: “We won an OSCAR"!
