See this acclaimed film in its first 70mm screenings in Ohio.

That’s how director Paul Thomas Anderson hoped The Master, which was shot with the Panavision System 65 camera, would be projected where possible. The format is sure to add another level to what is already a powerful film, one of the most critically lauded features of 2012. Especially noted for its spellbinding performances, The Master stars Joaquin Phoenix as an unstable WWII vet who falls in with the leader (played by Philip Seymour Hoffman) of a religious movement called “The Cause” and begins traveling around the country spreading his teachings. Also with Amy Adams and Laura Dern. (144 mins, 70mm)
