Is There Just One UK Screen Set To Screen Django Unchained On 35mm Film?

UPDATED: Odeon have now said officially that this was a mistake and that they will not be screening the film in 35mm at all. Indeed, at the moment, the only cinema in the UK that appears to be doing what Tarantino wants is the Rizty in Brixton. Thankfully for him, it’s a bloody good cinema. Original story follows…

There’s only one listing for Django Unchained on the Odeon website right now, and it has this URL:

http://www.odeon.co.uk/fanatic/film_info/m13428/Django_Unchained_35mm/

Quentin Tarantino did originally say he wanted Inglourious Basterds released only on 35mm and not digitally, but that didn’t seem to work out for him. I saw it in a digital presentation, that’s for sure.

And that’s also how I saw Django at a press screening too.

There are obviously plans afoot for a 35mm release of his latest across the UK, though I do wonder how many Odeon cinemas – indeed, cinemas full stop – can still run 35mm prints. It won’t be anything like a majority, I’d wager.

I’ll look into this for more information. Perhaps other chains are going to get involved. Tarantino would obviously like you to see his film with all of the imperfections that celluloid brings, and so it’s not really the experience he wants you to have if you see it in any other way.
