8 Reels



Though proper therater projection is fast becoming a forgotten art, we consider projectionists to be the last remaining artisans of movie exhibition and we implore your help in delivering THE TREE OF LIFE properly to the screen.

With a friendly salute, we urge you to consider the following points.

* This film should be projected at the 1:85 aspect ratio.
* (For film projection) Reel 2 begins with a black frame. please be sure to cut at the marked frame or the frame line.
* Please keep the faders at a minimum of 7.5, though we hope to set as high as 7.7 if sound system permits.
* There are no credits at the beginning of this film, so make sure the lights down cue is well before the opening frame of reel 1.
* Please ensure that the lamps are at proper standard (5400 Kelvin); that they have the right wattage, and they've been tested recently so that the foot Lambert level is at standard 14.

We are most grateful to you for any additional trouble this is likely to cause you.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this request.

A fraternal salute,

Terrence Malick

We started at 7.0 and then ducked to 6.5 after some complaints during the "2001 orgasm" sequence.

Yes 7.5 for weeks in Dolby Digital.
No complaints for loudness.
I thought it sounded great too.
