Re Cinerama, Pictureville Cinema in Bradford at the national science and media museum is able to project this format. Apparently it is the only public Cinerama projection system outside the USA. (according to wikipedia).

The ultimate 70mm Cinerama experience imo, is the "Beyond the infinite" sequence from Kubrick's "2001" - and I saw it back in the day, on that giant screen, when I was a kid. Blew my brains out. I've never been the same since !

Great podcast guys I did own a Loewe once but it was way back in the late days of crt, I think it was a 32 inch Planus in black and I bought it ex dem along with a Yamaha AX1 that's still going strong at my parents. The combined weight of those two nearly destroyed the back axle of the Punto on the journey home

Great podcast!
Thanks for the heads up on Jaws, managed to catch it in the cinema, I think back in 2012 before the blu release, you just cant beat it on the big screen!

On a side note I was once looking for ET for a film based school topic & my search brought up ET : The Extra Testicle :blush:

Hello Phil,

Is there a podcast in which you discuss the Sennheiser Ambeo soundbar?

Are you going to review it?

Great podcast guys (as always). It'd be great to get 4K discs for Lawrence of Arabia and Jaws (although...how more fake will the shark look?) but what we really need, finally is THE ABYSS and TRUE LIES...come on Cameron, stop faffing around with Avatar and get those approved!

Loewe TVs - the only thing heavier than a Sony Trinitron. Not a terrible idea for one of the big brands to pick up the name and use it for ultra top-end stuff.

Spider-man FFH is the first movie available in the 270 wraparound screen at my local Cineworld. A modern version of cinerama for Phil?

I had a 32inch Loewe Tv , it was great picture before we had HD.

BTW - Jaws is (sort of) available in 4K on Sky Movies.

Thank you Steve. I had a long conversation with Sennheiser today about it. Looking forward to your evaluation.

You might be interested in this documentary Steve. I think you mentioned it in a previous podcast.

I've still got, in grade "A" condition, the original untouched Star Wars trilogy on THX VHS including the case.

I also still have a fully working Panasonic NVHS1000 S-VHS deck within my Hi-Fi / AV rack complete with a working remote so I can still watch them But as I have them (like many others) on BD's er I don't. By the way any film with an "uber" driver in it is a no, no for me. :censored: :nono: Apart from that an enjoyable poddy guys. ;)
