As the Kinopanorama seems to be coming to an end, these adds help us remember our "Kino", the one we enjoyed.
Here is a selection of these adds (some of them are missing though). Memories...
A list of theaters we'd like to see more often...
December 1975, a classic
The 240sqm of the screen can't be missed
October 1979, the movie that woke the Kinopanorama up
Note "Seul à Paris... sur écran géant!" (Only in Paris... on a giant screen!)
Two weeks later, the add was changed a little bit;
the Kino still is the only giant screen playing this movie though.
March 1981, the 70mm print of The Rose is replaced by a new one (48 weeks on the Kinopanorama screen!)
[Thank you Philippe for your documents!]
October 1987, a masterpiece by De Palma
The screen surface was replaced by its width (24m); competing with the new Forum Horizon.
Competing with the Forum Horizon again, but also with a remodeled Max Linder.
The logo has changed.
New STS sound system equipment.
The screen surface is now only 200sqm (why?)
Few changes, but hey, this is Indy playing in 70mm!
Nothing left about the amplification system; reservations can be made.
Information on the new CDS digital sound system
Even more sober
Much too sober, the 70mm mention can hardly be noticed
(Only the Kinopanorama played Howard's End in 70mm, it will be its last 70mm print before Gaumont remodeled the theater).
June 10, 1992
The Kino can hardly resist its new competitor located on the Place d'Italie;
the Dolby SR sound seems poor compared to the LC Concept of the Gaumont Italie and Ambassade and at the Publicis Elysées;
it will be the last movie played in the old Kinopanorama.
June 24, 1992
The adds are getting smaller.
July 8, 1992
No more adds for the last week.
Juillet 15, 1992
Closed for remodeling.
In september, the "Gaumont Grand Ecran Grenelle" (!) will open, new and beautiful (but with a smaller screen).
Thank you Philippe for these adds.
September 2, 1992
