Apollo 11


A 90-minute documentary will ht the theaters next year. Researchers found over a hundred reels of Panasonic Panavision 65mm footage in the archives. They had to make custom equipment to screen it and transfer it to digital. They found 30-channel audio tape from Mission Control that captured all of the controllers' conversations. That, along with other audio recordings, have been matched up to the film.

The results, so far, to quote CSM Pilot Michael Collins, have been "magnificent".

I my have to make a trip to an IMAX to see this one.

No grainy 16mm.? Nice.

Mr. Picky thinks you may mean Panavision rather than Panasonic.

I fixed it. But yes, no grainy 16mm. Pristine color, high-resolution film footage.

Some experiences scale with screen size. I can tell this one starts out great, so I'm hoping it comes to my iMax.

I saw Dunkirk in iMax. I would never call it a good movie, but in that theater, it was an incredible experience.
