The old Warner Cinerama theater on Hollywood Boulevard is now a religious center called Ecclesia. 
 
Right outside its entrance, you'll find one of Lowell Thomas' stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Lowell Thomas actually has two stars on the walk, one for his movie career, and the other for his work in radio. The symbol on the star indicate which is which.
 
 
Merian C. Cooper's star has his first name misspelled.

The old ticket windows have been boarded shut. Patrons are requested to go to the new multiplex, "Arclight Cinemas", for tickets.
 
 
 
It's 9 AM Friday, and people are beginning to queue up for the free 10 o'clock premiere of "In the Picture".

Those large projection lenses are actually real second hand lenses that have been used in 70mm cinemas, and quite heavy. Not your typical nicknacks. One can be yours for $99.95. Why not buy a dozen?

Cinerama camera #1 used to be on display in Bradford, but a few years ago it was moved home to the U.S. Unlike later cameras, this model has the three magazines mounted in parallell for easier dollying through narrow doorways.

Grauman's Chinese Theatre was the site for the premiere of Windjammer. Nowadays it's one of Hollywood's foremost tourist attractions.
 
 
Nothing says Hollywood like the classic sign, seen here from my hotel room at the 10th floor of the Loews Hotel.

John Sittig is the director of this festival, and it seems like he does all the jobs by himself. He has produced the films and restorations, he changes the posters, runs the projectors, introduces the films, and collects the tickets. I could swear that there must be more than one of him... :)
 
 
Cameraman Lance Fisher is eager to demonstrate the Cinerama camera, doing anything to please the festival audience...
 
 
...even taking the camera apart...

 
 
...and then finding it slightly difficult to reassemble, because it was unexpectedly loaded with film!

Dave Cavena of Image Trends explains how the digital scanning and restoration of the three panel Cinerama films is done.
