Thanks for the above info.the time i was at the ABC olympia ther was a still slide projector in use to the left of the DP70s , used mainly for the saturday mornigs ABC minors shows.i wonder if that was still ther till the conversion.i remeber one sat. one of the rectifiers broke down and my self and deryck the chief projectionist had to work fast to get a standby rectifier connected for the normal afternoon show as we had to finish the morning show useing just one of the DP70s

I was ther when the 70 mm re release of gone with the wind was on, i remeber carrying the reels in ther metal cases to the projection area.i think one of the last 70 mm films shown at the olympia was Ryans daughter in about 1972.but ther may have been a few more later.I have some photos of the hall just prior to tripling ,which im hopeing to put on here sometime.thanks for the above reply.

I was a probationer at the abc olympia in late 1968, the DP 70 projectors were in use then , and as far as i know were in use up until the triple conversion in 1976.
