Man in the 5th Dimension (S)22.04.1964World Fair, NYC, USA"Serving as the centerpiece of the Billy Graham Pavilion, a 70-mm wide-screen film called Man in the Fifth Dimension was shown hourly from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. in a special 400-seat theater that offered viewers earphones in a choice of six languages. Each inquirer was counseled afterward in his or her own language."

"So we went ahead, developing a seventy-millimeter wide-screen Todd-AO film entitled Man in the Fifth Dimension. Using spectacular photography to tell the story of God’s creation and His love in Christ, scriptwriter Jim Collier and director Dick Ross put together a presentation of the Gospel that touched thousands of lives."

The Artist Who Did Not Want To Paint (S)
 
07.10.1965State, NYC, USAPrologue to "The Agony and the Ecstasy".
"Circus" (s)1973ChicagoSteve Kraus [11.12.2018] on Facebook:

"Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry had a theatre as part of their circus exhibit sponsored by Sears [1973]. It was shot in 5/65 turned on its side to showcase aerial wire acts. But projection was not 70; they used 16mm triple frame on a specially adapted Century projector. Film handling was with an endless loop device atop the projector. Sound was 35mm full coat on a dubber in the next room with the film running up and down over many rollers. I don’t recall the track arrangement but there were some holes punched to trigger effects like a strobe in the theatre."
