You can theoretically run 5 perf 70mm on IMAX projectors, though I certainly wouldn't do it with anything precious (and pretty much all 70mm is precious these days) ... it would be a fun experiment though, you'll just get three frames at a time rotated 90 degrees running three times as fast as they should. Likewise I often use junk IMAX film as regular 70mm leader since the frame lines match up.
