The Hateful Eight 70mm screenings list [unofficial]
While the world is anxiously waiting for the Weinstein Company and their associated international distribution partners to release an official list of theaters that will show the 70mm roadshow version of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, let’s get the ball rolling. With the help of in70mm.com and hopefully with the help of you all, we can compile what we know.
Update: The official listings have since been published, click here.
Visit this entry at in70mm.com on The Hateful Eight, which has a release map, a work-in-progress list and some information about the 70mm technology used.
So now we’re working on our own list: The Hateful Eight 70mm screenings list and we’re hoping for you to send us updates or comment below so we can extend and clarify the list as much as we can.
Also recently released is the short documentary about the 70mm roadshow version of The Hateful Eight (which was also shown at Comic Con), watch it here:
We will update this article as soon as there’s an official list, and in the mean time please do send us your info if you have a heads up from your local movie house, we’ll update our wiki article accordingly.
In my opinion, Mr. Tarantino has changed the face of American action movies for the good! Lots of movies come and go ,but Quentin’s movies stick with you! The mixture of his writing,casting and choice of soundtracks are unequaled in the industry!
Orpheum cinema in Cremorne Sydney http://www.orpheum.com.au/wp-cinema/movie/OHATEFULEIGHT/THE+HATEFUL+EIGHT+-+70MM/
AFI Silver in Silver Spring, MD (Washington DC) is advertising the roadshow on their calendar but no showtimes yet.
Don’t see Hateful Eight at Varsity in Toronto. They butchered the projection of this film. It looked like 70mm projected through a jar of Vaseline. Very disappointed.
AMC Northpark in Dallas was a joke. They used a normal size screen (Star Wars is on all the large ones), which when the 2.76:1 aspect ratio was projected, made for an underwhelmingly small image. Tarantino would have been upset. AMC should be ashamed. It should have opened at LOOK on their evo screen, or anywhere else for that matter. Epic fail.
FYI The Park Theatre in Vancouver is NOT SHOWING THE FILM IN 70MM . I was there opening night and management made everyone there aware that the film would be shown digitally and if you didn’t like that you could trade your ticket in for a voucher to see it some other day when they had the print up and running. Not impressed as I asked for the ticket for XMAS..and drove all the way there to see the print from Langley. Someone needs to get down there and show them how to set up the print that’s sitting there and offer the patrons who showed up on xmas day a voucher in addition to their paid ticket to see the film the way the film is being advertised .
Seemingly another spot in Melbourne, Australia showing this film in glorious 70mm:
