I heard from someone reliable that "Dunkirk" will have 70mm prints.

The visuals in this movie look great. I'd love to see this in 70mm. If anyone in DC or NYC gets it I'll consider a trip.

Since Dunkirk was lensed in 65mm it would be odd if there were not 70mm release prints.

I have about as much interest in seeing King Kong in 70mm as I would in being on the first crew to Mars. But at least it helps keep the format viable and the labs alive.

There'll be both 5/70 and 70mm IMAX prints.

There was a lengthy sequence from Dunkirk attached to the 70mm IMAX prints of Rogue One and to be honest, the picture quality wasn't that great. Oddly soft and washed out.

Well, lots of battle scenes are soft and washed out in other movies. Would think it would be hazy from all the gunpowder and explosions going off. Will be interesting to see scenes that are not hazy and how those look.

According to in70MM, the full list is:

  • Willow Creek 12 - Plymouth
  • Look Cinemas - Dallas
  • Cinema Banque Scotia - Montreal
  • Arclight - Hollywood
  • Arclight - Sherman Oaks
  • City Cinemas 1,2,3 - New York
  • Cinerama - Seattle
  • Renaissance Grand Lake Theatre - Oakland
Strangely enough, the reviews are turning out to be pretty good. Too bad cinemas in Colorado don't have the wherewithal to run anything in 70MM.
