Remember a few weeks ago when we talked about Panavision? In the 1950s, Hollywood attempted to lure viewers away from their new TV sets by making movies widescreen, color, and/or 3-D. Panavision was the wide format asked about on your Final.

One of the few remaining screens that can show 70 mm film is the Arclight's Cinerama Dome. We discussed The Hateful 8 and how it was going to screen there, and I suggested you go over Break.

Stay tuned, because it may only be playing Star Wars now. Here is an excellent brief article explaining the historical significance of the Cinerama Dome, what it meant to Tarantino's new movie, and the politics of movie distribution.

The Hateful Eight bumped from Cinerama Dome at Arclight-Hollywood-for-Star-Wars/41533
