Andy, strickly speaking it isn't necessary to use a Super 35mm gate to run
full aperture 35, unless you intend to project the entire image "perf to
perf", in which case you should rent a Super 35mm gate from Cintel.
Otherwise, there's no physical reason as there is with Super 16mm.

There is a very nice Super 35mm alignment film available through Options
(D.E.L. Alignment & Resolution).  Works great and not too expensive.  It has
extraction points for Academy, and various other aspects from full aperture.
I recommend it as an alternative to the SMPTE A&R film.
