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." It was the Ambassador Theatre, and it was specially set up for a ...

I thought it was great...
20 October 2003 | by (Auckland New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I have been a Cinerama Buff since first seeing Cinerama Holiday at the London Casino way back in the 1950's. Enjoying other 3 strip and single lens productions over the following years. Such is my enthusiasm for this unique cinema medium that I took a flight from New Zealand to enjoy the 50th Anniversary of "This Is Cinerama" last year. Following this with a visit a month ago to "How The West Was Won." What beautiful colour and definition. Puts present day productions to shame. Whilst in L.A. I managed to see David Strohmaiers production of "Cinerama Adventure". What an interesting and entertaining historic document this is. The interviews with production crews, artists and producers makes this an excelent archival record for future generations of film buffs reminding them of the cinema at it's best. I thought the Cinerama images quite spectacular even on the "standard" wide screen format. The Dolby sound track too opened up a new window on the superb audio that was part of the Cinerama attraction. Top marks to David and his team for a wonderfull look back at "Cinerama" in it's heyday. Can't wait to get the DVD... Bob Jessopp Auckland New Zealand.
