Philip Seymour Hoffman in 'The Master'
Philip Seymour Hoffman in 'The Master'

Friday night I got an email tipping me that Paul Thomas Anderson was previewing "The Master" in 70 mm at The Aero in Santa Monica. Scheduled at 10:30 PM, the movie unspooled after 11 PM; I did get a writer into the house and will post something later today.

There has been debate about how many 70 mm theaters will be able to show the film, which is set to debut in Venice followed by Toronto, although no official announcements have been made. TWC bumped up its release date from October 12 to September 14, with a wide opening on September 25.
