Any evidence on the print itself that it is actually a 4k film out, not just 2k?

Some theatres around the SF Bay Area are advertising in '70mm Widescreen'. From the previews I have seen'Joker'looks like It was shot in flat 1.85 not widescreen and then blown up to 70mm flat for just a few 70mm showings in the USA? No 70mm widescreen like most 70mm film roadshow prints have been in the past.

Actually 1.85:1 was considered widescreen originally [Smile]
Many 1.85 films have been blown upt to 70mm in the past

Saw the 70mm print at Arclight Sherman Oaks. Looked really nice. Projection was good, crisp and OK registration. I wish they'd put a Kinton in theater 3, but its ok. I'm so gracious for everyone involved from the really beautiful production through the very good printing from FotoKem. Excellent job all the way around, and a decent movie to boot! [Smile]

Just watched it at Seattle Cinerama. Rock solid presentation. Super clean print. All changeovers (happened every reel) were flawless. Cue markers were small white circles (don't know the proper terminology). Sound was rich and deep. Screen was masked for proper 1.85 unlike the recent screening for ET which it was set for 2.2 and Piller-boxed. I used to wonder what the point was for a 1.85 blow up. And now I get it. And it was not even an "action film" in the typical sense.

Bold filmmaking! Joaquin Phoenix was astonishing. Supporting cast was great. Cinematography, sound and music also impressive. Who knew Todd Phillips had this film in him?

Teaser trailer for Nolan's "Tenet" preceded the film.

Ran JOKER at Alamo Drafthouse Brooklyn last weekend, WHILE the 4K was on the screen behind me. I must be honest, this is the worst 5/70 job I've seen Fotokem do yet. Colors are good, but looking at the screen behind me, was not impressed with the sharpness or render. Original file also has artificial film grain added.

I mentioned that I thought that would be the case in another film related forum. It was not even shot on film so there had to be some loss in the digital intermediate rendering. It was shot digitally and is going to look best in that format. I have seen two other Foto Kem jobs the last few years and they do leave a lot to be desired... mainly steadiness. The H-8 I watched also had a greenish cast to it. Its shit like this that will kill all film really fast. The only thing that will still be standing soon will be digital file to 35mm direct positive film out.

Looks like the Alamo Drafthouse in Kansas City has a 35mm print
