Sabucat Productions will present the largest 3-D tribute
show ever mounted anywhere in history, from Friday, September 12 – Sunday, September 21 at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.
The 10 day festival, which celebrates the golden era of 3-D filmmaking, will include many of the best known 3-D titles of the 1950ss, such as “HOUSE OF WAX,” “KISS ME KATE” and “CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON,” but will also offer fans of the format an opportunity to see some of the more obscure 3-D movies, many of which have not been seen in 3-D in over 50 years! Some of these titles include: “I, THE JURY,” “JESSE JAMES VS. THE DALTONS,” “GOG,” and “GLASS WEB.”
In all, 33 features and 21 short subjects will be shown along with a “rarities” show consisting of rare stereoscopic images, many of which have never been seen in a public setting. In person guests will speak at selected screenings.
All prints will be 35mm and run in the “double-interlock,” Polaroid System, the original method (and still the best method) for showing true 3-D.
Festival organizer Jeff Joseph says, “Many of the prints that we’re running are the last in existence… and in some cases the original negatives no longer exist. Due to the complexity of projecting these films in the stereoscopic format, this may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience these movies the way they were meant to be seen.”
Daniel Symmes, noted 3-D historian and 3-D filmmaker, is working with Jeff in organizing the technical aspects of the Expo, as well as providing background information on the films. “This is a totally unique event in film history,” says Symmes. “It is my dream come true to see all this wonderful, stereoscopic art at one time. Nobody has ever seen all these films together – not even when they were originally released.”
