Does anyone have a listing of Dimension 150 theatres and/or know if any are still in existence? How did this format compare to Cinerama?

Check out Roland's Cinerama Stuff site -
he has what you're looking for on D-150.
I don't know what the addy is for this, but you can find it in the Links section at www.widescreenmuseum.com .

The Continental still exists, and the auditorium and screen are (largely) as they always were (same size, curvature, etc.). Note that they are not running 70mm, so only a portion of the screen actually gets USED these days. That's the only one I know of that still has the deeply curved screen intact. The Cine-Arts in Pleasant Hill, CA, still has the original auditorium, but the deeply-curved screen has been replaced with a mildly curved and slightly smaller screen, much as they did with the Century 21 in San Jose.

I don't know what I'll ever do with it, but I have the screen from the UA-150 (D-150) in Seattle sitting in a storage unit. I had fun moving that one! I tried to buy all the surrounding draperies, supports, etc., but the theatre was in mid-demolition at the time, and the scissors-lift we rented to get up and disconnect things couldn't get from the door to the screen area, so that idea had to be scrapped.
