    Oh, and the Castro Theater - I saw a 70mm print of
    "Lawrence of Arabia" there, and I thought they had
    Bladerunner there recently.

    My university played a 70mm print as a special showing on
    campus. The projection/setup was amazing. I'll never forget the
    opening scene.. where the man is riding the camel in the
    distance. At first the image is a tiny speck, but the DETAIL of
    that speck was amazing. The scene was rock steady, and no
    obvious "film" jitter or anything.

    Can't recall the actual size of the screen they projected on,
    but was an easy 25' across.
