Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Many of us experience childhood memories, that on occasion, rush into our consciousness. A memory that has invaded my mind on numerous occasions was when I was only six years old, and my parents took me and my sister on a special trip to St. Louis, Missouri. On the last day of this visit, we arrived at a very large ornate old movie theatre. It was as if we'd walked into a sultan's palace out of the "Arabian Nights."

Grading on a curve: A.
18 October 2003 | by (Ellijay, GA) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to enjoy 3-strip Cinerama during the original release of "How the West Was Won" in Atlanta, GA and in recent years in Dayton, OH and Los Angeles. CA. I'm also a career projectionist with an affection for widescreen and esoteric processes.

Although I had previously seen rough cut segments of "Cinerama Adventure," I was not prepared for the final version. I found it informative, innovative, and surprisingly exciting. It's a story of people with a dream, some willing to risk life and limb to overcome obstacles, ironically making this picture's connection to "How the West Was Won" doubly significant.

While the Cinerama format information, clips, and witnesses interviews will certainly be of interest to fans of the large screen spectacles and the uninitiated, "Cinerama Adventure" is ultimately an encapsulation of the drive of filmmakers everywhere, a love letter to their devotion and desire to make bigger and better movies.
