Starring Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy and Harry Styles. Award-winning director and modern-day pioneer of 70mm film, Christopher Nolan brings his unique vision to a defining moment in history. From May 26 – June 4 1940 an extraordinary and unprecedented evacuation took place. Surrounded by the German army, 400,000 Allied soldiers became trapped on Dunkirk beach following a fierce battle in World War II.

With no Arclight locations listed, we can expect the 5/70 list to grow.

Is anyone else amazed that there are so many Imax venues still able to do film? The Ontario and Irvine (Calif.) Imaxes haven't done film for awhile, at least to my limited knowledge.

Colorado Center 9's Imax screen had the loudest, cleanest sub-bass I'd ever heard in a movie theater when we saw "Interstellar." But 15/70 had just broken down and we ended up seeing 2K digital. Really glad to see they're up for film for Dunkirk.

Very surprised not to see a 5/70 print for Arclight. Why have Wonder Woman and not Dunkirk?

I could be wrong but I believe the last time Irvine Spectrum showed 15/70 was for Interstellar, which I saw there my second time. Unfortunately the print looked terrible during the entire black hole sequence all the way until the end. Since it was my second time I didn't make a big deal about it. I was inquiring about their plans for Force Awakens in IMAX, (Laser or not) and mentioned the print damage to the manager. He was nice enough to give me two free IMAX tix and was very apologetic.

I don't know why the 5/70 list is so far off. But I was told the roll-out was going to be similar to Hateful Eight, so we should be expecting a pretty long list coming soon.

I wonder how accurate that list is. They don't include the Grand Lake in Oakland, which claims to be showing Dunkirk in 70MM on their website. They misspelled the Continental in Denver, and they list the AMC Westminster in Vancouver instead of Westminster.

Still, I'm thrilled to see so many 70MM showings!

[Edit to add:]

It's worth mentioning that the list at the NolanFans website was scraped from the source code of the Dunkirk website. It hasn't been officially published yet.

I called the Continental and asked if they'd be showing it in 70MM on the large screen, or if it would be on the small screen in the back.

Madison (a manager!) had to ask upstairs, but then reported that corporate was still deciding if they would show it or not, but if they do, it will be on the small screen in the back because that's where the 70MM projector is.

I told her that the last time I was in that auditorium, there was green light from the exit sign on the screen, and asked if that had been fixed. She said that she wasn't aware of a problem there, so it must have. I asked dubiously, "You're sure of that?" She answered confidently, "Yes."

It would be in the same auditorium as Hateful 8 was. They ain't moving that shit. It's in one of the "newer" auditoriums that was added in the last 10 years. #8 or #9 I believe.

I guarantee you that light hasn't been fixed. She just hasn't noticed it and nobody has ever complained about it, at least not while she was working.

I don't buy that.

For Denver the list omits the Colorado Center IMAX which had earlier confirmed they would be showing it in 15/70.

Both the other Denver locations showed Hateful 8 in 70mm, though I would be very suspect of the presentation in Westminster given how little AMC in this area seems to care about it.

Who cares about geography? [Razz]

Not yet official, but EYE Amsterdam will most likely run the 70mm version after the general release.

So, there's no way to see it in 70mm during the first weeks after the release in the Netherlands. Which is kind of ironic, since it was partially filmed there.

Most German locations will most likely run the German dubbed version.

Indeed the Grand Lake is showing it in 5/70mm. I believe the Mercado in Santa Clara is not.

Also missing is the Willows in Plymouth Minnesota.
