This might make you drool, Leo.

See if you can find a documentary called 'Keepers of the Frame' (don't have
distrib info at my fingertips now, but I know Dennis Doros at Milestone
helped with supplying archival footage and SHOULD have been the
distributor). There's a scene of a chap in the States (L.A. I think) who
owns and operates his own Vista-Vision cinema -- in his living room! He
shows how he operates all three projectors by himself, and gives a
demonstration of what it looks like... even from the perspective of a TV
doc, featuring a very pink print, it looked marvelous. I mean, who wouldn't
want a VistaVision cinema in their living room?
