I am pleased to confirm a 35-mm screening of 'Halogenuros' (Halides) technical research short-film in Burbank, next Tuesday April 3rd, 2018 at 13:00.  The short film was mainly shot in Super-8 Vision2 color negative in Chile between 2004 and 2006. Anyone interested to attend should send an email ( to fotoquimicafilms@... to receive an invitation to attend free of charge.  We will project the answer print (Kodak 2383 with Dolby Digital 5.1 and magenta analog tracks). It was made in New Zealand in October 2006. Please note this first screening has no english subtitles. 
This is targeted to industry professionals.


Thank you for your attention,

Lots of commercial screening rooms around. Googling “screening rooms los angeles” will get you a nice, long list. Adding “35mm film” to the search terms shortens things up considerably. Quentin Tarantino’s New Beverly Cinema is mentioned...

Many thanks.

Thank you Bengt F.   "Halogenuros" is part of a technical research project about Super-8 and 2K Digital Intermediate. The research received initial funding from FONDART, a cultural fund from Education Ministry of Chile in 2004.   As you mention, we were able to use for some sequences, the Pro8/01 stock back as early as November 2005, just few weeks after Kodak released the Vision2 50D (5201) stock.   The camera was an ex-Beaulieu 4008 ZM II upgraded by Pro8mm in Burbank, and called "Pro8mm Classic".  A PL to C Mount adapter was used and the best Super 35 lens we could use at the time was Carl Zeiss Ultra Prime on one sequence (the second sequence of the dancer, with blue screen).  We also used on one sequence the Schneider Optivaron 1.8/6-66mm.   The blue screen work was done using Rosco Digicomp blue fabric.
The footage was all shot in Chile, and then was mainly developed in Megacolor, Sao Paulo and Gama S.A.I in Santiago de Chile. The footage was then scanned at Park Road Post, in New Zealand via a Spirit Datacine to 2K DPX RGB 10-bit Log. The 2K DI uncompressed post-production was done in Chile with a Quantel eQ (QColor) system and the film-out to 35mm was done at Weta Digital, NZ, via an Arri Laser to Kodak 2242 intermediate and then printed to Kodak Vision 2383 print.  I am grateful of all the support from great people like Jony Sugo (Megacolor), Maria Mayor (Gama), Jon Newell (PRP), Pete Williams (Weta), Phil Vigeant (Pro8mm), the crew (Gaffer Francisco Urzúa, 1AC Cristián González S) and more, that made this project possible.

I have attached a frame, that shows Super-8 Vision2 100T with a Carl Zeiss lens (intended for Contax)

I am now preparing sort of a sequel, updating the results to new stocks, optics and digital film post-production, but the target is the same: a 35mm print.
I have been testing recently, CW Sonderoptic Thalia, Master Prime, and Cooke S4/i.  I plan to shoot the second part within few months, hopefully.

The Spanish 'Halogenuros' project film is interesting, I have seen it before, at a much higher resolution, incredible quality.

It was one of 1st attempts, as far as I know, made to scan in high resolution a Super-8 Vision 50D color negative (provided then in Super-8 cartridges from Pro8mm in Burbank) with excellent results. The camera used was a Beaulieu 4008 ZMII Super-8 camera with the famed Schneider Optivaron 1.8/6-66mm zoom lens, but 35mm Zeiss Master primes were also used, I believe, via a PL to C mount adapter. So, this was an ambitious project, where green screen is also used in some scenes, and also a comparison with scanned Super-16 negative.
All the best, Bengt F, photographer & DP, Stockholm, Sweden

Here's a web link of the project  (but at very low rez! and with a slight frame rate issue - however the 35mm print is just fine):

Many thanks for all the replies in this list and off-list.
If the projections are finally scheduled, I will let you know to invite you.

The short film is a technical research film about Super-8 : "Halogenuros" (Halides) that was completed in 2006.

Spanish version; we hope to make a new print with english subtitles.

In Los Angeles:

Check with the American Cinematheque which runs the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood and another theater in Santa Monica. The Egyptian has a large theater with 35/70 mm changeover and Dolby, and a smaller screening room on the ground floor.  The AC does rent facilities for events and screenings. The main theater is been used as a screening room for 70 mm dailies, among other things.

In New York City:

Check Anthology Film  Archive, Second Street and Second Avenue.

If Anthology can't help they likely know who could.

In both cities, check with Technicolor and Deluxe to see if they maintain screening capability for 35 mm with Dolby 5.1

If what you need is more screening room size, that might be appropriate and less costly than renting an entire theater.

You might also find possible locations in the AMIA Supplier directory:

I hope this is helpful.

Well, there's always the Loewe's in Jersey City. It's a little bit big...
I suspect it will cost a lot to four-wall the place just because of the
HVAC costs... but they have good 35mm projection and the last I looked they
had staff that weren't film-wreckers.

I'll second the recommendation of the Fotokem screening rooms and also suggest
the Billy Wilder Theatre at UCLA.

I see a lot of places that have 35mm projection in the booth around here,
but not so many that actually maintain the equipment and have staff that
are competent to run it.

I don’t know if they still have film projectors in place but it’s worth checking with them.
Fotokem, of course, in Burbank (smallish screening rooms, though)
