It looks like the Loew's Jersey in Jersey City may finally
be installing the 70mm equipment they acquired sometime ago:http://www.loewsjersey.org/
Farther afield, I've been trying to convince the ownership of the Senator Theater in Baltimore to do
a 70mm festival, to no avail:http://www.senator.com/mb/viewmessag...m=13&Topic=211
The AFI Silver in Silver Spring, Md. occasionally does
70mm (they've shown "Lawrence of Arabia" in 70 a number of times - in fact they're doing it again next
month as part of a David Lean retrospective. Interestingly, they're showing "Ryan's Daughter", which
reportedly looks great in 70mm - in digital!):http://www.afi.com/silver/new/default.aspx
The Ziegfeld in NYC, where I saw "Lawrence of Arabia"
in its original restoration showing in 1989 (one of my top
five movie-going experiences - complete with stunning
70mm print, Overture and Intermission music, no
commercials or pre-film junk of any kind, and two sets
of curtains - one of which opened for the Overture!)
doesn't appear to do any 70 any more.
