US 70mm-capable Theatre Listing

Last Updated: July 3, 2014

Wow. After languishing for years without many updates, this page has become popular over the last couple of weeks due to the potential release of The Master in 70mm. Please send any updates and I will add them ASAP. Let's help to get this released in 70mm! As a reminder, this is for 5-perf 70mm locations only. Not Imax. Not 8/70.

This is an attempt at compiling a list of theatres in the US which are capable of presenting 5-perf 70mm films. For the purposes of this list, special-venue theatres are not considered--only regular, theatrical venues and screening rooms.

These theatres have been submitted since the spring of 1997. Some theatres may have closed or been stripped of their 70mm capability since then. Everything in the "comments" section has been contributed by others; I (snorwood) have no way of verifying the accuracy of most of these comments. This list started as a do-it-yourself web form thing where people could fill in theatres as they pleased, but the list got large enough that it really needed to be sorted by state, and I haven't had time to re-write the original CGI scripts for this new (and much more readable) format. Maybe I'll get a chance to do it someday.

If you have new theatres to submit or updates to the theatres listed here, please send mail to snorwood@redballoon.net. Thanks.

US 70mm releases since 1970. (This is a few years old.)
