Of the seven sites the ancient Greeks named the "wonders of the world," only one remains. Seven Wonders of the World is a round-the-world adventure that picks up where the Greeks of antiquity left off. Released in 1956, this Cinerama spectacle follows 20th century adventurer Lowell Thomas as he seeks out the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Join him as he flies across the globe in the "Smasher," a converted B-25, capturing some of the most breathtaking photography ever shot. The quest opens at the great pyramids, the last of the original Seven Wonders to still exist. From there, the "Smasher" circles the globe with Cinerama photographing a live East Africa volcano, under the bridges in New York, over and around Rio de Janeiro, the Parthenon in Athens, Angel Falls in South America, and many stops along the way to experience the beautiful culture of diverse locales. The film encourages the audience to choose from the dozens of sites explored. "What are your seven wonders?"

Flicker Alley and Cinerama, Inc. are proud to present Seven Wonders of the World in the Smilebox« Curved Screen Simulation. Unseen theatrically since the early 1970s and never before broadcast or issued on home video, Seven Wonders of the World has been digitally remastered from its original camera negatives. The global adventure captures the beauty and culture of these extraordinary places in a Cinerama time capsule.

Bonus Materials Include:

The original Seven Wonders of the World breakdown reel - the same one used in its 1956 theatrical run.
Newsreel footage from the film's opening night in New York
A restoration demonstration on how the damaged negative was restored

The French Cinerama Everywhere short on Cinerama tent shows in Europe

Search for Paradise (1957)

 
Search for Paradise Deluxe Blu-ray/DVD Combo Edition S.R.P. $49.95

Search for Paradise / 1957 / 120 minutes / US / Directed by Otto Lang / Produced by The Stanley Warner Cinerama Corporation

UPC: 6-17311-67899-8 ISBN: 1-893967-89-1

"Join Lowell Thomas and follow in the footsteps of Marco Polo" in this new, digital restoration of Search for Paradise, the fourth of the original, 3-panel Cinerama travelogues. Released in 1957, the motion picturetakes you to the "Roof of the World," the Himalayas and Karakoram mountains of Central Asia, the highest region on Earth. You'll become part of the adventure as explorer Lowell Thomas searches for paradise in ancient cities, wild river rapids, and the lush gardens of mountaintops. Your first stop is the Forbidden Kingdom of Hunza, a hidden valley bordered by China, Russia, India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, home to a legendary warrior tribe. Next, you'll challenge the rapids of the Mighty Indus River, fed from a fantastic galaxy of monumental glaciers draining from some of the greatest heights known to man. From there, find respite in the romantic Shalimar Gardens in the Vale of Kashmir, then fly to Katmandu for the coronation ceremony of King Mahendra of Nepal. The adventure concludes with a trip to a U.S. Air Force base, where Thunderbird jet planes cut across the sapphire blue sky overhead at supersonic speed.

Flicker Alley and Cinerama, Inc. are proud to present Search for Paradise in the Smilebox« Curved Screen Simulation. Unseen theatrically since the early 1970s and never before issued on home video, Search for Paradise has been digitally remastered from original camera negatives. The film captures the imagination and asks what your dream paradise would be: beauty, adventure or peace.

About Cinerama, Inc.

Cinerama, Inc., which produced and released films in the three-strip Cinerama process, is a part of Decurion Corporation, which also owns ArcLight Cinemas and Pacific Theatres. Cinerama is the trademarked name for the widescreen process, which works by simultaneously projecting images from three synchronized 35mm projectors onto a huge, deeply curved screen. Previously released Cinerama titles on DVD and Blu-ray include This is Cinerama (1952), Windjammer (1958), South Seas Adventure (1958), and Cinerama Holiday (1955).

About the SmileBox« Curved Screen Format

These Cinerama publications are set up in a format which illustrates to a modern audience how different and special the Cinerama experience was when originally exhibited in theatres. The innovative curved screen "look" used in these Cinerama remasterings was developed and designed with input from film historians, award winning 3D graphics experts, digital engineers, and Oscar winning cinematographers. From this effort, SmileBox« was developed to take full advantage of the HD 16 x 9 frame, and yet maintain a 146 degree effect that would approximate what people saw in Cinerama theaters. Owing to certain limitations, the producers believe that this SmileBox« format will approximate a "Cinerama effect" on flat 16 x 9 monitors, or when projected on screen.
