Cinema Retro Announce 2014 Season
Celebrating Films of the 1960s & 1970s. An exciting New Season from our friends at Cinema Retro.

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: Dave Worrall & Lee Pfeiffer, Cinema Retro Publishers Date: 01.10.2013
Soon-to-be-published in 2014, Issue 28 with a 12-page tribute of the Technirama film "Zulu".

Do you remember the days when cinemas showed 'Double Bill' programmes, Road Show films with intermissions, and sold souvenir brochures? Do you long for those days when you could read great film magazines like ABC Film Review, Photoplay and Showtime? YOU DO? Then you must remember that the 60's and 70's were probably the greatest period ever for the film industry - an era that brought the cinemagoer a choice of several classic movies released every week, film posters that were works of art, and ice cream usherettes that brought your ice pop to your seat - and wore stockings too! This was a wonderful period in cinema history, and Dave Worrall and Lee Pfeiffer, have brought those memories back and recreated some of those fabulous publications that we all still long for.

CINEMA RETRO: the Essential Guide to Cult and Classic Movies is a 64-page full colour magazine - now in it's 10th year of publication - devoted to those great films of the 60's and 70's. Every photo-packed issue features:

Major in-depth look at a classic film or film series.
Cinema sirens and hunks: photos of those delicious sexy actresses and actors whom we all long to see again.
Reproductions of some of the greatest movie poster art of all time.
Exclusive interviews with actors, producers and directors from films of this period.
An international team of film scholars and journalists brining you classic movie news and articles from around the globe.

Each issue is a limited edition collector's item- published in England but available worldwide. This is not an amateur fan magazine. Rather, it is written by recognised writers in the field of film criticism as well as from the vantage point of the actors, producers, directors and technicians who were a part of this wonderful era of film making. To ensure you receive each issue of this magazine, you must be a subscriber. Cinema Retro is a premium-priced magazine designed for readers who take their moves seriously. You will not find the latest film news, gossip or rumours. You will find insightful and fun articles regarding classic and cult movies, in-depth interviews and some of the rarest photos imaginable.

So, if you have a passion for films like - The Great Escape, Psycho, The Devils Brigade, Get Carter, Zulu, Where Eagles Dare, The Magnificent Seven, Play Misty For Me, Our Man Flint, Von Ryan's Express, 100 Rifles, A Fistful of Dollars, The Carry On comedies, Ice Station Zebra, It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, Kelly's Heroes, the films of Hammer, Norman Wisdom comedies, The Professionals, The Dirty Dozen, Cinerama, The Eagle Has Landed, - get our drift? - Then why not join the growing band of film buffs who, at long last, have decided - no, demanded - they can at long last read a publication devoted to their passion - great classic films from the 60s and 70s. And if there's a favourite film you would like to see featured or would like to supply an article about, then we want to hear from you too!
