Six channel was usually reserved for 70mm prints, though you could achieve six channels for 35mm presentations with a separate, interlocked playback device. But even six channels usually still meant mono surround--the other five channels were all behind the screen.Larry Geller said:Just about any Cinemascope roadshow production from 1953 on has 6 channel surround sound.
Four-channel (LCRS) was part of the CinemaScope spec for the first few years, though Fox eventually dropped it as a requirement.
