SUN SEPT 5 at the CINERAMA DOME – Los Angeles!

TED GOODING passed on this note from David Strohmeier – Cinerama lovers, take note!

Thought you would like to know that the digital remastering of the 1958 complete roadshow production “Windjammer, the Voyage of the Christian Radich” will screen at the Cinerama Dome on Sunset Blvd. Sunday September 5th at 11:30 AM.  This film was remastered in digital for eventual release on DVD sometime in 2011.

Due to the original negatives being incomplete this digital re mastering was done from a very rare composite 35mm anamorphic print located at the Swedish film institute.  All three panels were found intact within the 35mm Cinemascope format.  

This print had considerable color fading and grain problems and the image had to be digitally enhanced to bring back the color.   

Please pass this note along to any widescreen or Cinerama fans you know.  Hope to see you there for this nostalgic Cinemiracle voyage! Tickets will go on sale in a few days.

  1. A note from TED GOODING : Movie Fans the 50′s are back!

    Los Angeles and Theatre Historical Society of America connections:

    Developed at Jensen’s Melrose Theatre. We never went there during our National Conclaves due to lack of time, I am sorry to say. But, I did take special groups there: The Cinema Theatre Assoc.of England, and various wide screen groups with THS members in attendance.

    Played at the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, where yours truly saw it as a VERY young man, really a child! Once seen never forgotten.

    Theatre Historical Society of America member Mr. Shan Sayles was IN the movie! (A little older “young man”)

    Be sure to read the attachments on how this was brought back for our pleasure. If we show our support this will encourage them to do more. Please share this information and sell the house out, as the saying goes.
