Movie Details

A look back at Cinerama, the forgotten film production process that utilized three cameras and projectors to create a spectacular wide image capable of completely immersing moviegoers in the action. Filmmaker David Strohmaier introduces contemporary film viewers to the process that flourished from the 1950s through the mid-1960s by creating a completely new cinematic experience. From the sweeping travelogue adventures that helped establish Cinerama to box-office hits like The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm and How the West Was Won, no film tin is left unopened in an effort to tell the complete story of the cinema style that flourished for 14 years before it was usurped by other, more convenient forms of widescreen. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
