Also, you may be interested in knowing that ‘scope 70mm aspect ratio traditionally is 2.2 wide rather than usual scope (2.35 or 2.39) to accommodate the surround sound that used to be on the film itself. And, “The Joker” was filmed with digital cameras, not 65mm cameras, or 35mm cameras (for blow up to 70mm).

All 70mm films are NOT scope! The Joker is flat, as was for example, The Master.

Terry, having checked 2 websites, it seems just this film & Patton, among full feature films were filmed in that process.

My friend Jay Farrell has suggested to me that the same road construction that is putting the bookstore out of business apparently kept the google streetview photography car from reaching that block.

Please don’t speak in “code” meaning abbreviations! It is taken me awhile to recall that some posts ago “N & A” was Nicholas & Alexandria. Spell out the names of the movies.

HowardBHaas commented about Odeon London Leicester Square on Sep 11, 2019 at 4:18 pm

RadioVenus, being in Philadelphia, PA, I haven’t visited LA recently though I have visited London recently. I was curious what movie theaters in LA still used a curtain. Being a flagship showplace for Disney, I expected El Capitan still uses a curtain, but I am delighted with your info that the Chinese IMAX uses a curtain and the Cinerama Dome uses a curtain. If you haven’t done so, please post such info on those theater pages and/or photos of the curtains closed. I’d be eager to know if the Village theaters esp Village & Bruin use their curtains, Hollywood Vista, and any others. Thanks again for your report regarding real theater showmanship!

HowardBHaas commented about Paris Theatre on Sep 10, 2019 at 6:52 am

Harris did the L of A restoration that was shown at the Paris. Having seen 70mm classics including the most recent restoration of L of A at the Museum of the Museum of the Moving Image, I would say the Paris experience would’ve been fine. True, not an enormous screen, but plenty large enough. I enjoyed “Hamlet” in 70mm at the Paris when it was shown there.
