Lots of fun - Cinerama is still an impressive format today!
7 August 1999
Cinerama is a format in which movies are filmed using three cameras, then displayed on a curved screen using three projectors. It does a great job of making you feel like you're in the action. Only about 10 movies were filmed in Cinerama, and very few theaters are currently equipped to show them. The only one in the U.S. at present is in Dayton, Ohio, which is where I saw Cinerama Holiday.

This movie is about two couples (they were couples in real life too, and they used their real names), one from St. Louis and one from Switzerland. They each go to the other's country and travel around. That's the plot, such as it is - but seeing the sites in Cinerama is a lot of fun.

There are huge musical stage productions in Paris and Las Vegas, bobsledding, a county fair, skiing, a puppet show (where you can see the audience as well as the show) and a lot of more low-key stuff. It's a lot like being taken on vacation by interesting hosts. If you get the chance to see it, do.
