Giant-Screen Docs are Box Office Giants

Did you know that large-format (70mm-15perf) documentaries such as Everest are among the top-grossing documentaries of all time? I wrote this story for the Oct. 23 2006 issue of Film Journal International. (FJI brought me on as Large Format Editor for several years in the 1990s, during the boom period when many movieplexes added giant-screen 3D theaters. I am still an occasional FJI contributor.)
