What does 70mm look like?

Short answer: really freaking cool.

The long answer has to do with the history of film, aspect ratios and the development of different camera equipment, but suffice to say chances to see a 70mm print are few and far between. For our presentation of Jacques Tati’s Playtime on January 5th, the Film Society is rigging up special sound equipment and other bells and whistles.

The print arrived a couple of days ago. Pretty cool, isn’t it?
Tati’s exuberant vision will be a ray of sunshine in the middle of winter. Come join on Monday:

Mon Jan 5: 1, 3:30, 6 & 8:30
