Accordingly to the official web site for the 1570 Theatre I work at, in the film stats we screen 350mm film!.

Wow!, that would be some huge projector to lace up!

The image quality would be amazing though. Let me know when you get a print. It might be worth the trip over.

Depth of field? Crudely said, the larger the format, the shallower the depth of field.

Can you imagine the noise it would make running through the projector? Nothing less than 120 frames per second would be acceptable on 350mm film. You'd have to have huge merry-go-rounds for platters that spin at some crazy speeds! Either that or a changeover every 23 seconds.

Ben,

Is this the Imax in Birmingham? I saw a reference to 350mm film on their website a few months ago. I emailed them about it but got no reply.

I guess its because the Imax frame is 10 times larger than 35mm, therefore it 'must' be 350mm.

I'm not seeing where it specifies 350mm.

Ben /Phil

I saw this just after the site went live and also sent them a note ,but sadly they ignored that as well.

Not to be outdone when in 1985 we installed the CP200 our local film critic wrote in the evening paper " The National Museum has now overtaken the Odeon and will soon be screening state of the art 700mm films with 6 track Dolby stereo "
