WOW! And they have that weekend evey year! What a weekend that must be!
If Great Britain can have a weekend of 3 strip CINERAMA and 70mm films, why can’t the CINERAMA Dome and the Seattle CINERAMA both not manage to do the same thing each year? We should all contact both theaters and ask them that!
“Ladies and Gentlemen, This is CINERAMA!” Lowell Thomas, September 30, 1952
It is always a great time and some of the greatest ever 70mm films are shown as well as the best 3-strip Cinermama movies; ‘This is Cinerama’; ‘Cinerama Holiday’; Cinerama’s Seven Wonders of the World'; and ‘How The West Was Won’ over the years. Where else can you still see, in all its Cinerama glory, the 3-strip ‘Renault Cars’ commercial?! This weekend also includes ‘2001 – A Space Odyssey’ as a Cinerama presentation – as it was originaly shown. Pictureville cinema is equipped to show all film and sound formats and is an example of the best in film museums and as a regular cinema. An IMAX 3D cinema is next door. All in all a weekend in which to indulge yourself.
This is what happens when tax money goes to the arts.
The current US government believes the arts can fend for themselves unless they carry a moral agenda. We have a lot to learn from the UK.
WOW so Windjammer still exists
