Making movies. Enjoying movies. Remembering movies.
What a time to be alive and well in Hollywood this October! The film that ushered in an era of showmanship and widescreen cinema, "This Is Cinerama," returns to the ArcLight Cinerama Dome for two showings on October 21 and October 23, 2004. For those who haven't seen true three-panel Cinerama with seven-channel stereophonic sound, this is a must-see event in one of the most beautiful modern theatres in the world, the Cinerama Dome.
If it's not enough to ride a roller coaster or fly across America's Heartland from the comfort of your theatre seat, the folks at The Dome have added more Cinerama treats to the screening menu.
According to David Strohmaier ("Cinerama Adventure"), the program will include:
"Lowell Thomas breakdown reel."
This is the standard
[Academy] format reel originally shown in the 1950s whenever the Cinerama
system broke down. Lowell tries to entertain Cinerama audiences on the
small screen with some unusual stories and bad jokes.

Dates: October 21st at 7:00 PM & October 23rd at 10:00 AM.
Location: ArcLight Cinerama Dome, 6360 Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood, CA 90028
When you're there, make sure to pay a visit with John Sittig of Cinerama, Inc., David Strohmaier and those who have put on this special Cinerama showcase. There is an amazing amount of work, time, effort and care that goes into making things happen. These gentlemen are true film buffs, and their passion for movies comes through with impeccable showmanship during these Cinerama and widescreen presentations at the Dome.
Special Thanks to David Strohmaier
