70mm projection

I want to start posting more of my movie theater projects here on my website. We are installing a 70mm projector at my theater. At double the width of regular 35mm film, 70mm film has a resolution of 9.3K. (Compare that to regular 2K digital projection.) 70mm was the most popular for grand films of the 1960s and has gained attention recently with The Master in 2012 and The Hateful Eight later this year.

Today we received a test print of 70mm film.  The picture is faded, but in this photo you can compare it to the size of the 35mm film next to it.
