Widescreen Weekend 2017 will take place between 12–15 October 2017. We've already announced two wonderful widescreen movies and a very special screen talk that will be part of our programme this year. Weekend 2017 once again celebrates the joys of large format film making in many guises. Cinerama pioneers Dave Strohmaier and Randy Gitsch return to our shores once more and enable us to screen their final digital restoration of the historic 3-panel Cinemiracle travelogue "Windjammer", showing on Pictureville’s deeply curved, louvered Cinerama screen.

THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF THE BROTHERS GRIMM

Experience the grandeur, majesty and pure fantasy of the famous Brothers Grimm and their tales in the world’s only known surviving 3-panel print. With everything from invisible cloaks to elves and dragons, the film features re-enactments of three stories—The Dancing Princess, The Cobbler, and The Elves and the Singing Bone—to create an all-singing, all-dancing film for the whole family!

WINDJAMMER: THE VOYAGE OF THE CHRISTIAN RADICH (New Restoration)

Come on board this magnificent Norwegian square-rigger as it takes a spectacular 17,500-mile journey, manned by a crew of young sailors-in-training—all photographed in the widescreen splendour of Cinemiracle. Now digitally restored fully from the original 6 perf 3-panel elements, this classic is reborn: the colour, the music, the true artistry more vivid than ever. Embarking from Norway, the ship sets sail across the Atlantic, with storm-tossed stops in Madeira, Curacao, Puerto Rico, and Trinidad. By the time they arrive in New York, the Cinemiracle cameras offer a kaleidoscopic treat of colour and sound, including exciting underwater shots of frogmen and a submerged US submarine. Seen digitally, the picture hasn't looked and sounded so good since its original theatrical release, over 50 years ago. Sponsored by Cinerama, Inc. This screening will be introduced by Cinerama's Restoration Team, David Strohmaier and Randy Gitsch.
 
 
Lecture: KEVIN BROWNLOW: THE RESTORATION OF NAPOLÉON

Kevin Brownlow's 2011 Schauburg Cinerama lecture was completed by the last reel of "Napoleon" in 70mm on the curved screen. Kevin Brownlow is looking at the screen from the 5th row. Picture by Thomas Hauerslev

Widescreen Weekend is proud to welcome the acclaimed British film historian, documentary-maker, filmmaker, and author Kevin Brownlow, who will be taking us through his incredible 50-year journey to restore Abel Gance’s five-and-a-half hour silent masterpiece Napoléon. The event will be accompanied by a screening of Napoléon’s famous triptych sequence, showcasing one the film’s most innovative techniques and one of the earliest uses of widescreen.
