Presented in the "Smilebox" curved screen simulation. 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 U.S. film exhibition. Fred Waller, cinerama's creator, had indeed labored 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 146ʻ deep. In celebration of the 60th Anniversary of its premiere, Flicker Alley is proud to present This is cinerama (Academy Award Winner*), exactly as seen by over 20,000,000 viewers in its original roadshow version. 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! (*1953 - Scientific Technical Award to inventor Fred Waller)
