This is interesting, how many theaters can still show 70mm?

And I wonder how its done, given 70mm print stock no longer has magnetic stripe on it.  But, it was done for 'The Master'

Mag stripe ( for new prints ) hasn't been used for many years now.

70mm is printed with a DTS timecode ( or timecode for PCM on IMAX ).

I am 99% sure all film projection became digitally synced with a separate audio system many years ago.  And, before that I believe all audio tracks became digital tracks in wave-form in the sound strip area on the negative.  I don't think a magnetic strip has been used for sound in Hollywood projection for some time.

 

Sadly, I only know of one theater in the Boston area, the Coolidge Corner Theater" capable of projecting a 70mm (non IMAX) print.  They were the ones to have The Master when it made the rounds in the Northeast.

35mm optical soundtracks in recent years varied from Dolby SR ( analoge ), Dolby Digital, Sony SDDS ( data blocks ) and DTS ( timecode ) all on the same print.

 

Mag stripe was phased out decades ago for 35mm due to cost and better quality sound from Dolby encoded tracks.
