Now that Alamo has passed on showing this on their screens is there a chance someone else picks it up? I think Netflix still wants a 70mm release. I dont see any of the big chains picking it up, but that would be ironic if somehow it happened.

My cousin was assistant manager at the Billy Wilder theater at the Hammer Museum up until a few years ago. They run only changeover on a pair of Kinoton FP75E projectors and the projectionist staff are highly skilled.

This movie is in black & white. Does anyone remember any black & white 70mm releases? I have to think real black & white 70mm film stock has to be very rare. My guess is that they will print on color stock. Very hard to get black & white to look right on color stock and even harder to get it consistent reel to reel or I should say film roll to roll.

If this is being printed on 70mm polyester black and white stock, theaters had darn well better be running FilmGuard or those prints will really go to shit fast. 70mm poly is bad enough, but add black and white stock to that...oh boy!

It looked a bit sepia to me at Telluride so guessing it was color stock.

Russian movie "Optimistic Tragedy" from 1963 was shot in Sovscope 70 in black and white.

How many prints are they making of ROMA in 70mm?
