If you’re in the New York area and can make it to the Quad Cinema (34 W. 13th Street, New York, NY 10011), you’re in for a super cool treat delivered in wondrous 3D! Color us who are far away extremely jealous.
From the Press Release:
With cinema having taken shape amidst such early iconic images as Broncho Billy firing into the camera, a train coming straight for the audience, and a rocket going into the moon’s eye, it was inevitable that features filmed in 3D would opt for comparable effects so as to show off the wonder of the process. But there were more varied genres explored in the format and by more eclectic filmmakers from all over the world than are commonly recalled.
With 3D for today’s movies fully digitized into lockstep with DCP, the Quad takes a look back at some of the more arcane, quixotic, and disreputable uses of the process in the ’80s over-and-under boom, which was heavy on horror sequels, sci-fi adventures, idiosyncratic cult movies, and grindhouse fare.
Join us for an all-35mm survey programmed by Harry Guerro. The event runs from October 13th to the 19th.
