The Grand Budapest Hotel

This weekend, The Grand Budapest Hotel expands into some more theaters after a record-breaking limited release on just four screens last weekend. And with that wider release, someone at Reddit (via Collider) has gotten ahold of the very specific projection instructions that Wes Anderson had Fox Searchlight send to all the theaters playing the film. The main reason for this is to avoid confusion because of the three different aspect ratios (1.33, 1.85, and 2.35:1) used throughout the film to keep the timelines clear. So it's smart to include this information so viewers don't get a screening with the image cut off. Look!

Here's the projection instructions for The Grand Budapest Hotel from Reddit (click for larger image):

The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel is written and directed by Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore) and tells of a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars and his friendship with a young employee who becomes his trusted protégé. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting, the battle for an enormous family fortune and the slow and then sudden upheavals that transformed Europe during the first half of the 20th century. Fox Searchlight released The Grand Budapest Hotel in limited theaters on March 7th and expands wide in coming weeks.
