Schauburg Cinerama. Karlsruhe's curved screen

In Karlsruhe’s Schauburg Cinerama Theater, where the screen is curved 120 degrees, Smilebox® had viewers recalling seeing analog Cinerama in Berlin, when it first premiered there, in 3-strip projection, in 1959.

Manager Herbert Born used his red velvet theater curtains to lead the digital curtains opening and closing on all our digital Cinerama shows for a premium presentation.

In Innsbruck’s Leo Kino, where the screen is flat, Smilebox®, in conjunction with Cinerama’s 3 lens image capture, created the illusion of a curved screen for each show. Here host Dietmar Zingl used his vertical lift blue curtains to lead Cinerama’s center-separating digital curtains on each show, for a double dose of showmanship.

 
 
Leo Kino, Innsbruck

During a rehearsal in the Leo Kino, pausing the show with the digital curtain closed and the theatrical curtain raised. Suddenly, the screen is curved.

Smilebox® was created by Dave Strohmaier and is used on all of the 3-panel Cinerama release motion pictures being screened in the 2015 European Cinerama Festival Tour.
