From Randy Gitsch and the Cinerama Restoration Crew:
Our digital, recombined, remastered and Smileboxed, “Cinerama Holiday” (1955) will screen on April 27th in Bradford, Yorkshire, at England’s National Media Museum, during the Widescreen Weekend portion of their Bradford Film Festival. It will be shown on the Pictureville Cinema’s curved screen, and in one of only three in the world venues capable of showing real, 3-projector Cinerama. Our digital version can be projected on flat, or curved theatrical screens, with perfect visual results. In fact, we’ve shown our previous digital versions, of “Windjammer: The Voyage of the Christian Radich”, and “South Seas Adventure” here to packed houses and enthusiastic acclaim.
David Strohmaier and Randy Gitsch, responsible for the remastering of this title and the rest of the Cinerama widescreen library, will present both the film and a behind-the-scenes seminar on the film and its painstaking reconstruction while in Pictureville. This year’s festival will be mark the 7th time that Strohmaier and Gitsch have been guests of the festival where they’ve presented films they’ve created on the subject of Cinerama, and shown their remastered, widescreen works.
Discussions are initially underway by Cinerama, Inc. for distribution of this title by Flicker Alley, the current distributor of combo DVD/Blu-ray releases of “Windjammer” and “This is Cinerama”.
