Unseen theatrically since the early 1970s and never before released on home video, CINERAMA SOUTH SEAS ADVENTURE can now be viewed in a digitally remastered edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars CINERAMA SOUTH SEAS ADVENTURE-Great transfer and sound Oct. 28 2013
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Unseen theatrically since the early 1970s and never before released on home video, CINERAMA SOUTH SEAS ADVENTURE can now be viewed in a digitally remastered edition. The film was restored from its original camera negatives, emitting both a breathtakingly colorful panorama and a sparklingly clear, seven-channel sound track. Narrated by Orson Wells the film takes us on five different stories following trips to Hawaii Tahiti, Tonga and Fiji, then to and the even more exotic, primitive Pentecost Island. Native dancing and song are celebrated alongside cultures and customs spanning thousands of years. Then it's onward to New Zealand and to Australia. My granddaughters and I watched the Blu-ray today and they really enjoyed the movie. Watch and you will see primitive bungee jumping from a tower with vines attached to the boys feet...YIKES. Sound is great and the transfer is even better than "This is Cinerama" re-mastered last year. It's worth every penny. There is a vintage Renault promotional film as originally presented in 3-panel Cinerama that is pretty cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing restoration & beatifull 1950's time capsule in high resolution Nov. 4 2013
By Peter Rondum - Published on Amazon.com
Image Trends performs miracles on this round of Cinerama restorations! Due to the extra cost & complexity of restoration many people felt these films would never be restored. Image Trends goes above & beyond! Cinerama was an industry game changer. In 1952 they had developed wide aspect ratio & high resolution picture along with 7 channel high fidelity simultaneous surround sound. A very significant step(s) up from the norm of the time. Their "test" exhibition on Broadway was a colossal success leading to international growth. South Seas is the last of the initial Cinerama travelog films and the subject matter is stunning in sight & sound. The motion of the ocean on the Te Vega really puts you in the picture! It's such a 1950's time capsule.The Tongan Choir singing Handel's messiah in Polynesian is astounding! They did not read music but used a system of numbers. The higher the number the higher the note. Pick up a Blue-ray deck if you don't have one. They are really affordable these days. Cinerama is high resolution from the start so it's pays off on this vintage material. Recommenced!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful restored Cinerama travelogue Dec 6 2013
By Jim Tarleton - Published on Amazon.com

Another Cinerama travelogue now released in a beautiful Blu-Ray SmileBox format. The scenery is positively spectacular with Orson Welles narrating. It is a big plus that these original Cinerama movies are being released in SmileBox simulating the original Cinerama process. MGM released "How the West Was Won' in SmileBox and I just wish that all Cinerama movies were released in the SmileBox process. This is the original roadshow presentation.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Cinerama! Dec 26 2013

This movie was a fun travelogue on the big curved screen in the 1950's. Now on a digitalized Blu-Ray format with the SMILEBOX Widescreen provides us with the illusion of the original curved 3 projector experience. A must have for the admirers of Cinerama. A must have. Many extras and fun, fun, fun.
