pmstephens -> London Screening of The Master in 70mm? (14/9/2012 12:54:32 PM)

Howdy, does anyone know where I can see The Master in London on 70mm?

I have searched a number of large-screen cinema listings, I have Googled extensively, I'm coming up blanks.

I would have thought the IMAX would have had it, but no.

Any ideas.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Paul

I'm sure BFI will show it at some point, but how many prints are there?

The British distributor (Entertainment) have no plans to bring over a 70mm print I'm afraid. Which is very frustrating. I'm involved in a campaign to get a print over in time for next years instalment of a 70mm festival that I attend, with our plans being to tour the print around Europe in a road-show fashion, should we be able to get ahold of one. Every 70mm capable venue in the UK is on board with the plan (although there are only a handful of them), we just need the print now.

Anderson announced tonight that there are 16 prints. Which is 14 more than I thought there would be!

Odeon West End are showing it for 2 weeks from 2nd November.

Awesome news. Definitely going.

It's not London (obviously), but this evening the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse announced on Twitter that they'll be showing it in 70mm from 16th November.

Big thanks to UTB.

Went to see the screening at ODEON West End last night.

Excellent.




UTB -> RE: London Screening of The Master in 70mm? (8/11/2012 10:55:09 AM)

Excellent! I went too. Best film I've seen all year.




adambatman82 -> RE: London Screening of The Master in 70mm? (8/11/2012 4:31:47 PM)

I too went last Friday! I saw it a few weeks earlier in digital, but the 70mm made it even more impressive (it was already my film of the year based on the digital screening).

I should have updated this thread btw, but I totally forgot about it. The 70mm print is going on tour later this month. It starts, as mentioned in Cambridge for a period, before heading elsewhere. Liverpool FACT definitely have it for one night, while I expect Edinburgh Cameo and Pictureville Bradford will also be screening it, while a pal of mine tells me a screening in Manchester is on the cards.

Did you have to put up with the Les Mis featurette? Has to be the single most 'wanky' thing I've ever seen. If anything it proved that my love of film and utter hatred of actors isn't crazy.

And who'd have thought singing live would ever be classed as 'groundbreaking'?

Urgh. I shall be using it as an argument for more bare bones dvd/blu ray releases. They might as well have been tossing each other off. That would have been infinitely less wanky, ironically.




giggity -> RE: London Screening of The Master in 70mm? (8/11/2012 8:33:10 PM)

I actually thought the Les Mis featurette was pretty good. Actually made me excited for the film and I dislike musicals. I'd like more trailers to take this route and instead of showing everything that happens in the film show some footage and behind the scenes stuff to try and tell the audience what they're doing. It's much more interesting.

btw adambatman as someone who's seen both versions can you tell us if there were any huge differences between the digital and 70mm print? I only saw the 70mm print and it looked beautiful!

Yep, got the Les Mis featurette. It was heckled in our screening! I was actually quite looking forward to the film, I'm a fan of the three leads, but that's pretty much killed any anticipation.

I'm a big fan of 70mm, so naturally lean towards the "yes there is a huge difference" side of the argument. However, I did tweet as soon as I sat down in the theatre that it wasn't a particularly big format friendly auditorium (low ceilings, unusual seating etc). I'd never been in Screen 2 of the Odeon West End, so booked third row seats, but had I known just how far set back the screen was from the front row then I'd have gone for the front row. I suspect the average person, sitting towards the back of the screening room would have left muttering things along the lines of "I couldn't tell the difference".

It's a beautifully shot film, so it's going to look great in any format, but from a technical perspective our eyes ought to theoretically be able to see more information and notice more detail on the 70mm print. Were I to recommend one version of The Master, I'd suggest making the effort to see it in 70mm. As is usually the case with the vinyl argument, I certainly think there's a difference in the "feel" of the experience of watching a film *on* film.


Funnily enough I had this exact conversation with Empire's own Kim Newman outside of my first screening of the film. We didn't know if it was going to be digital or 70mm that night see, so there were a number of folk quite worried that they wouldn't be able to actually tell the difference between the two if not told which version we were watching. You'd be surprised by the number of people, and professional film critics at that, that admitted that evening of not being able to tell the difference between DVD and Blu-ray!

Really? That is surprising. I remember one of the first blu-ray's I got was The Dark Knight and I remember showing my brother the truck chase scene and then showing him the same scene on his DVD and I was shocked how blurry the picture was on the dvd (although i've since found that the Blu-Ray makes Two Face's burnt face look less convincing while the dvd it looks more believable)

Also I remember putting in Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol Blu Ray and thinking halfway through watching it that it was an extremely poor picture for Blu Ray...only to realise that I had accidentally put in the dvd version of the film!

Yeah, it's a shame when there's a lack of effort put into the bluray. If you compare the bluray and DVD for a film like Lawrence of Arabia though, the difference is night and day.
