THIS IS CINERAMA [1952] [60th Anniversary Edition] [Deluxe Combo Blu-ray + DVD] [US Import] IT PLUNGES YOU INTO A STARTLING NEW WORLD!

On the evening of September 30, 1952, the shape and sound of movies changed forever with the introduction of Cinerama. This unique widescreen process was launched when television was deemed as a major threat to US film exhibition. Fred Waller, Cinerama's creator, had indeed laboured that long on his dream of a motion picture experience that would recreate the full range of human vision. It used three cameras and three projectors on a curved screen 146° deep.

In celebration of the 60th Anniversary of its premiere, Flicker Alley is proud to present THIS IS CINERAMA [1953 Academy Award® Winner], exactly as seen by over 20,000,000 viewers in its original roadshow version. You will travel around the world with Cinerama, from Venice to Madrid, from Edinburgh Castle to the La Scala opera house in Milan, and concluding with a flight across America in the nose of a B-25 bomber. Experience this cinema classic once again in this unique SMILEBOX curved screen simulation! Narrated by Lowell Thomas.

FILM FACT: 1953 Academy Award® for Scientific & Technical Award to Inventor Fred Waller for Development of Cinerama. This is Cinerama was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Music, Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture. Although the score was credited to Louis Forbes, who conducted the music, it was composed by Paul Sawtell, Max Steiner (who composed the opening credit sequences, Cypress Gardens, the Flight Across America, and the End Credits) and Roy Webb. In 2002, the Library of Congress deemed the film "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" and inducted it into the National Film Registry for permanent preservation.

This is quite an interesting journey in the history of film; we are taken on a film journey of the time and in Blu Ray you can enjoy a global trek in hi-def.

How wonderful to relive this first Cinerama film, restored so well by the talented crew. Unfortunately it wasn't available Region Free so I had to purchase a Region A player as well as the Blu-ray itself, but if a film means so much to you, you do it. The roller coaster ride was unforgettable and my other personal favourite was the Temple Dance from Aida, then the ballet during the grand march and chorus scene.You never forget the impact of a Cinerama production as a young person, much like Imax and Imax 3D today.When Cinerama came out to Australia we already had seen Cinemascope and Todd-AO, but it had quite a different effect, drawing you into the movemet. All together a great product and historically so important. Peter Hutley, Newcastle, Australia.

iiiiiiiIts been many many years since as a young lad i first saw this movie in London at the Casino Theatre and like many others was knocked out by it - loved proper widescreen movies ever since [its not widescreen today, just a cheap ripoff], this version goes a long way via the SMILEBOX image to restore somewhat how it felt if you were sitting in the rear stalls, i actually sat in about the eigth row from the front stalls - inside the curve of the screen! The sound system also was fantastic unlike anything ever heard before in a cinema {the early Fox Cinemascope movies of the middle fifties used Directional Stereo Sound also very thrilling and lifelike - Dolby Digital has never matched that experience] The restoration of this film considering the lack of resorses is quiet outstanding [thanks again to original Technicolor stock being used instead of Eastman or De-Luxe.For the new generation who have never seen CINERAMA or for the older generation who would love to re live the thrill all over again then you can do no worse than treat yourself to this fantastic dvd.
