     In 70MM

Here we're looking at the Goldwyn booth in 1994
with 3 Norelco DP70 35/70MM machines.
The photo is by Thomas Hauerslev. 

Mr. Hauerslev reports that they are customized with motorized
 bases that allow them to pan and tilt for alignment in any conceivable
  format. It's a photo on this site's
DP70s in California page.

It's a 5 machine booth with slots #1 and 5 sporting Kinoton
FP-38EC-II 16/35 high speed electronic studio machines.

Mr. Hauerslev's wonderful site is the place to visit
