HANG ON TO YOUR HATS AND GLASSES .. CUZ THIS HERE IS THE W.I.D.E.S.T SCREEN HERE IN THE WILDERNESS!!!
Get ready for an encore presentation of a piece of Hollywood History:
........ Is playing at the Cinerama Dome Theater this Oct. 28 thru Nov. 3rd:
This was shown in 2003 at the Cinerama Dome theater in Hollywood ...
and I thought I'd pass on the word for anyone who might have missed this back in 2003.
For those who don't understand all the hoopla .. let me explain the other reason, other than this being a classic Hollywood film -
How The West Was Won ... is one of a few films shot in a process using three cameras .. interlocking together to create an emormously wide picture.
Something like this:
Todays films are iether shot in a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1 or 2.35:1.
But CINERAMA was a whopping 2.76:1 approximate.
Not not only was it wide .. but the size of each film negative was significantly bigger than what's used today .... resulting in some rather impressive resolution .. even for "2005" standards.
How the West Was Won ..... has an incredible brilliance in it's original presenation with vibrant colors ... a depth of field that is breathtaking ... over all .... It's a shear "E Ticket" thrill.
Only a few Cinerama theaters exist today ....... original "Cinerama" films .. shown in their original format .. even rarer.
So ... if you feel like catching some Hollywood History ... or if this is one of your favorite films ... or if you feel like catching a good ole "Disneyland E Ticket" type experience ... this movie ought to pull you into an "attraction" feel with this format .. and this film .. which is a shear treat.
check it out!
