You've got less of an excuse than Greg. Jet 2 do cheap flights from Geneva (pretty close to Villeurbanne if my brain hasn't crashed) to Leeds/Bradford Airport, which is only 30 miles from York. Despite there being Yorkshire terriers, Yorkshire humans (by and large) don't bite!

Darren

So Greg lays out £25 to get to the airport, $600 for an air fare and $200 in accomadation, plus buys the movie ticket and takes a week off to do so. And you buy him a £3 beer ? Sounds like a fair trade to me - sounds like you are following company financial policy - Ms G would think be proud of you !

Darren

...including 3 new articles from Darren´s hand on www.in70mm.com - very soon. There´s no stopping to this guy!!

Btw. Denmark now only has 2½ cinemas left capable of showing 70mm films for 5.387.174 people. Isn´t it terrible? I have to go and live somewhere else - oh, wait a minute, I do that every year during Wide Screen Weekend [Cool]

Even the Danish Film Museum, may it rest in peace [sleep] , is not interested in 70mm [Mad] (except a few gentlemen in the library and the projectionists [beer] ). They don´t even have 70mm screenings facilities! [uhoh] What kind of museum/Cinematek is that? [thumbsdown] Only silent b/w, Carl Th. Dreyer and Asta Nielsen movies and Dogma 95 videos [dlp] has their interest. Anything wider than 35mm is not considered interesting. A typical amateurish Danish - non recommendable - approach. [puke]

I recommend everyone of FilmTech.com write them an e-mail at dfi@dfi.dk asking for 70mm facilities.

Thanks Thomas,
Ill do everything I possibly can to help promote the 70mm film format, as you do too.

Lets hope the rumors of the new 65mm production are totally true and this time next year many of us have a 70mm dts print in out premier theatres, run by people who care about film and will ensure a 70mm print is screened with the up most pride just like when films such as Lawrence of Arabia were released in the past.

Darren

Anyone after 35/70mm projectors should try peter at
www.fproj.com . You may find a bargain and be able to screen the 70mm premier format in your cinema!

Thomas - picketing the Danske Filmmuseum probably won't do much good. They've probably all been admitted to a psychiatric hospital after watching too many Dreyer films. That is if they haven't slit their wrists.
