But why 70mm, you ask? What is so special about this format and why should you come check it out at our theater? Well, we are glad you asked. Here’s why:
So that’s a quick rundown of why 70mm rocks our socks off...so what next? The titles, of course! We’ve got some of the favorites returning to our projection room and a few fun additions.
- 70mm is just plain better. With resolution equivalent to 8K (twice as high as the modern 4K digital standard) gives you the absolute best picture quality with the warmth and texture of genuine celluloid film. Sharper, wider, more awesomeness in every scene.
- It’s movie history! Having been around for almost as long as movies have been around, 70mm is an extremely rare format these days that very few theaters are able to accommodate. Luckily, your friendly neighborhood Seattle Cinerama has you covered.
- Directors LOVE it. From Christopher Nolan to Quintin Tarantino, some of Hollywood’s top filmmakers see 70mm as the essential way to view their pictures. We tend to agree.
2001: A Space Odyssey is the shining star in the group. Lawrence of Arabia returns. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood brings us to ‘present’ day filmmaking. Simply put, there is a bit of everything for the cinephile in your life. The full list of titles in the series can be found below.
But wait…there’s more! The highly-anticipated Joker, from director Todd Phillips, is coming to Cinerama following the 70mm Film Series with the first week of the 3-week run (10/3-10/24) being presented in the 70mm format! We’ll have more 70mm films this calendar year, so keep an eye on our social channels and newsletter for more.
