This is not 3-D Bluray related, but certainly IS 3-D content related.
Having personally attended the first two World 3-D Film Expos, I can attest to this being "must see 3-D"!
World 3-D Film Expo III Returns
to Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood
May 6th, 2013 -- Hollywood, CA – The World 3-D Film Expo will return to the Egyptian Theatre
from September 6-15, 2013. The ten-day festival will pay tribute to the 60th anniversary of what many
film historians regard as the “Golden Age” of 3-D, and will include screenings of the John Wayne
western HONDO, the Vincent Price horror film HOUSE OF WAX, Cole Porter’s musical KISS ME
KATE, and sci-fi thriller IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE., and even later 3-D films, such as
1983’s JAWS 3-D. Lesser-known titles, such as THE FRENCH LINE with Jane Russell and film noir
SECOND CHANCE with Robert Mitchum, will also be included.
The Expo is partnering with digital 3-D projection sponsor RealD to present a number of
screenings in RealD 3-D including Alfred Hitchcock’s DIAL M FOR MURDER and Jack Arnold’s
sci-fi/horror classic CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON. Stefan Droessler, 3-D historian
and head of the Munich Film Museum, will present an in-depth overview of “European 3-D
Filmmaking 1935-1953,” including long-lost footage from the 1936 Berlin Olympics.
The festival will also be home to several premieres including the Los Angeles Premiere of the
1946 Russian 3-D adaptation of ROBINSON CRUSOE. September 14th will mark the World
Premiere of the stereoscopic version of the 1954 Korean War drama, DRAGONFLY SQUADRON.
The film was only released in a flat version during its initial release, and has never been seen by
audiences in 3-D. Newly-restored 35 mm prints of shorts “Rocky Marciano, Champion vs. Jersey Joe
Walcott, Challenger” and “College Capers” will be screened in 3-D for the first time in 60 years.
Most programs being presented at the festival will be shown in archival double-system 35 mm. prints,
many of them the last known copies.
The World 3-D Expo has been called “a Woodstock for movie geeks” by film critic Leonard
Maltin. Organized by Jeff Joseph of SabuCat Productions, the Expo was first presented at the
Egyptian Theatre to sold-out crowds in 2003 and again in 2006. “The technical demands of
presenting 3-D cinema and the increasing difficulty of finding prints means that for many of the films
presented, this may be the last time they are ever screened in this format” says producer and
programmer Jeff Joseph.
Tickets for the festival are available on the Expo website at:
or by calling the Expo Box Office at (661) 724-0934. Individual tickets are
$18 per show; an Expo Pass for all 35 programs is available at $399 including priority seating. The
World 3-D Film Expo will be held at the Egyptian Theatre at: 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood CA
90028. [Please note that the World 3-D Film Expo III is not a presentation of the American
Cinematheque which owns and operates the Egyptian Theatre.]
