A theater near me still runs 35mm in two of their five auditoriums. They say they are really having a hard time getting movies and it seems that some movies are now not even being released on film now. I know the end is probably near soon. So for now, I would like to start a thread to list which new movies are actually being released on 35mm film prints. The feature info and attachments threads don't always have this information.

The theater nearby me is currently showing on film:

Cinderella
San Andreas
Tomorrowland

What other movies currently in release out there are available on 35mm film and what upcoming movies will be available on 35mm film? Please list them here. Thank you.

I know of at least two theaters running "Straight Outta Compton" in 35mm.

It'd be interesting to know how many 35mm prints are being made of these titles. Anybody have a source for that info?

Apparently it's about 10 per title (US).

A friend of mine stated that his theater is receiving copies of Trainwreck, Mr. Holmes, and Vacation in 35mm in the next few weeks and that Paramount didn't make any known copies of M:I Rogue Nation in that format.

That's good to know, maybe he just didn't get it in his area (Branson, Missouri). Any word on if Ant-Man got a 35mm? It'd be strange if it didn't, since all of Disney's other movies this summer got one.

If it's down to a dozen or fewer prints, who is getting them? Studios only care about money so who is out there that makes enough money that Hollywood takes notice but has not converted OR perhaps has but insists on getting a film print if any are made (and will be thoroughly pissed if told there are none but was lied to).

I think "McFarland USA" and "Run All Night" are a couple others that got prints.

Can anyone confirm Trainwreck, Mr Holmes, Vacation, McFarland USA and Run All Night?

No offense to Matt and Shawn, but for my list I prefer stronger testimony than "A friend of mine stated", and "I think". [Smile]

I had 35mm back-up print of McFarland when I did a big press screening
last year prior to its' release. So I can confirm there's at least one print! [Big Grin]

The friend I contacted about that hasn't responded since then, but I know for sure that AFI Silver has a 35mm projector and they're currently showing Mr. Holmes, so it's quite possible they got at least a back-up print to show in 35mm. As for Trainwreck, it was shot in 35mm so there has to be some prints out there somewhere. Vacation I have no idea about, there could very well be no 35mm prints, but knowing it's Warner behind it, they quite possibly could have made some prints. I'll update if I get anymore info on those three.

Update: I know none of these were stated above, but I did get word from a member of Kodak's management team that there are prints of Entourage and Ant-Man getting around. As for Trainwreck and Vacation, they had no idea yet, but knowing they have partnerships with Universal and WB to make prints, it's very likely those two have/are getting prints.

Not necessarily. Shooting on film, scanning the camera negative rolls and then doing the rest of the post and the distribution all digitally is not uncommon.
