Booking into a 70MM-equipped theatre, of course, for revival showings.

According to the Internet Movie Database, there have been 320 titles with 70MM sound mixes, therefore I'd assume there must have been at least a handful of prints per each made originally.

Here's the link to these...

Ugh...MOVING!

Joe, please pay attention. The main index page clearly states

They left out "Castle Keep" which is on Sony's list of available 70mm titles. That makes 321 titles.

Nope, the line was drawn between 5/70 and 8/70 (or more) because many typical theater complexes could run 5/70 and is a conventional format (so to say), but 8/70 and up is far from conventional. 5/70 needs to stay here.
