Saw the prologue in laser IMAX, looked good but underwhelming. The trailer is much much better. There's nothing like 65mm 15 perf truly. 

I agree, the original teaser thing didn't raise an ear, this one you can clearly see the beautiful large format shallow depth of field look. I really like 15 perf. I just hope he finally uses it for some dialog scenes.

Why shoot it on 15 perf 65mm if it's to be shown with laser IMAX? Isn't that a lot of extra expense to go to if it's not going to be shown on a film projector? I'm not criticising, I'm trying to figure out why Nolan would shoot with such an expensive process. I suppose the answer is that he likes doing it that way and the movie will easily make huge profit so cost of film is no object really.

Ohh it's going to be shown on film. 15 perf IMAX, 5 perf and 35mm.

Ah, I see. You are fortunate then.

You must understand, I come from the land down under .... where real movie film and film projectors are long forgotten. It's all digital as far as the eye can see. In fact if you raise the topic in conversation with pros here you tend to get a blank stare back at you. Like what you just said doesn't register. The cursor of their mind blinks in silent anticipation, as it were, while they await your next input to the conversation with something that connects with their personal experience. Film? No response. Brain cells not engaged.

But a loyal few remain ....

In Sydney the Ritz and Orpheum still show 70mm projections, in Melbourne we have the Sun and the ever reliable Astor. Sometimes the Melbourne IMAX shows 15/70mm prints, though I’m not sure if they still have their projector,  the last 70mm print I saw there was Dunkirk. We also have Melbourne’s Cinematheque which regularly screens 35mm prints of world movies.

If you’re a film buff you need to move to Melbourne!

I don't rule it out. I lived there for years as a kid and it's a lovely place to visit - I especially enjoy the inner city of course, where there's so much to see and do. And down the coast near Brighton. Brisbane has a growing film presence, so the interest must be there. It just needs to be sustained and keep growing.

Being an IMAX buff, sadly the Melbourne IMAX has removed their 15/70 projector. They've taken up the entire booth with digital laser projection. It's a travesty as that was the last truly great theater in the world. I think IMAX is taking back projectors that were on lease with them. The only 70mm theaters left either OWN the projectors OR someone has bought them, like Warner brothers did for Christopher Nolan and they put the projector at the AMC Citywalk theater here in Studio City CA. That IS the last 15/70 theater in CA, now that San Jose moved to digital last year.
