Russ Tamblyn recalling the difficulties of filming in Cinerama.
In The Picture is the new 3 strip anniversary gift to Cinerama, the first Cinerama to be filmed in 50 years. Looks great.

Seven Wonders Of The World was a mixture of old and new because the full restoration was not completed in time for the screening. The format presented was a digitized version of an old Linwood Dunn “combined print”. It had several segments of newly restored digital material, just received from Image Trends edited in at the beginning, middle and end. What a treat that was!
Cinerama Inspired Menu. The Dome Café has the perfect menu for dining after the show.
Wonderful World Of The Brothers Grimm in 3 strip Technicolor thrilled the young at heart. This last surviving print was shipped in all the way from Bradford, England courtesy of the National Media Museum.
All seven Cinerama 3 strip films were exhibited at the Dome in various formats. Cinerama Holiday made its digital premier in a restored 2K release.
Search For Paradise was shown at the Dome for, perhaps the last time, in glorious magenta. The pristine 3 strip print was shipped in from Australia, courtesy of John H Mitchell.
The 4th strip of 3 strip Cinerama is the 7 track full coat 35mm sound. Here is the sound for “How The West Was Won”, “This Is Cinerama” and “In The Picture”.
