THE BIG PICTURE: 70MM AT THE AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE

June 11 - July 28, 2011

Seeing a movie in the 70mm format brings a unique exhilaration to an audience that is hard to define, akin to childhood experiences on amusement park rides or at magical Saturday afternoon matinees in bygone-era movie palaces. From Super Technirama 70 to Ultra Panavision to Dimension 150 and more, the 70mm large-screen format has always promised - and delivered - a Barnum-esque world of spectacular sights and 6-track sounds. If the movies are always larger than life, then 70mm movies are much, much larger!

Join us at the Cinematheque for a program of hugely exciting 70mm screenings, including BARAKA, a Father's Day double feature of THE UNTOUCHABLES and BLUE THUNDER,GLORY and THE REMAINS OF THE DAY, a sci-fi/action double feature of TRON and TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY, a sci-fi/horror double bill of LIFEFORCE and FLATLINERS, the high-flying TOP GUN and David Lean’s epic masterpiece LAWRENCE OF ARABIA.

Series compiled by Grant Moninger and Gwen Deglise.
