If I still lived in Long Beach, I would enjoy going just to see the spectacular auditorium AND sitting in the balcony… it’s so much more exciting!

Is this a 3 screen presentation or just really wide screen?

Most likely a HD smilebox presentation from HD-Cam or Blu-ray. Smilebox version is the way “How the West Was Won” was presented in the Blu-ray edition.

This is GREAT news. Although I’ve seen this film, it sounds very interesting.
Hopefully someday, before it’s too late, they will redo “Brothers Grim”. I’ve never seen that either. But from the stills it looks impressive.

Are there plans to show this movie in other Los Angeles theatres after it’s showing at the Warner? I saw this movie as a 6 year old at Graumsn’s Chinese in 1958. It was shown in the original CineMiracle but I don’t remember most of the movie. I would like to see it again. I’m coming home for the holidays and it would be great if the Dome will show it then.

It was shown at the Dome on September 5; I would think it would be awhile before it shows there again.

The Seattle Cinerama with a new remodel opened this past weekend with ‘Harry’ What happens when a curved screen type Cinerama theatre shows the new SmileBox version of ‘Windjammer’ on a curved screen that is set up already? Do they just play a flat version if available and let the curve they have play out? I told my friend ‘Jim’ at the art deco large Del Mar Theatre in downtown Santa Cruz CA to try to play the SmileBox version of ‘Windjammer’ for a one week exclusive in Northern California on the Del Mar’s large wide flat CinemaScope screen with SmileBox, they have new digital projectors. Santa Cruz is a sea type town with many surf ocean type people and students that have never seen the curved Windjammer print.

“Windjammer” is available for theatrical exhibition on a HD drive in regular “letterbox” version, a smilebox version, and anamorphic version with a 1:25 squeeze. (That’s the version that we played at the Cinerama Dome in September.

Any chance of a report from anyone who saw WINDJAMMER at the Warner Grand?

Thanks John for the tech info. I’ll try to get Jim at the Del Mar Theatre in Santa Cruz to get in touch with you or Dave about booking of Windjammer in the Smile Box format in Santa Cruz CA. I wrote Ted Gooding about this so he can help.

Thanks to Bob for posting this video – I would never have known about it otherwise.

Boring, dated movie. Left film early during last year’s Conclave.
