Hi All
I am just curious how much people actually collect and have access to 70mm prints for their collection.
It was a special gauge in the Cinemas away back in the day. In fact it still is a very special gauge.
Cheers
Dave

It was requested, so I added it :-) I have no room for 35mm almost and certainly not 70mm. But it's film and I'd love to see more in this format. Last I saw was Lawrence of Arabia and Interstellar, before that Close Encounters of the Third Kind. That's all I've seen in 70mm

Yes Vidar I have seen many 70mm prints in the cinema over the decades.
I do know of one collector Ben Wales who has some 70mm prints including Lawrence Of Arabia.
He also has a Philips DP70 dual gauge film projector. He has in the past exhibited it at past BFCC conventions.
