Cinerama Adventure is a feature length documentary chronicling the amazing history of the long lost three-camera, three-projector cinematic process which thrilled millions around the world in the 1950s and early '60s. It all began in 1942 with a virtual reality training device that was credited with saving over 350,000 lives during the war effort. Unlike the 3-D fads of the early 1950s, Cinerama enjoyed a steady 14 year reign, ultimately playing in over 200 specially equipped theatres in most major cities around the globe. These wildly popular, "Wonder Hunting" Cinerama productions were almost always listed within the top ten box office grossing films of the year with two titles landing in first place.

APPEARING IN PERSON WILL BE PRODUCER/Director Dave Strohmaier and Producer Randy Gitsch. Program will include:
  • Meet and Greet with the Producers and Director
  • Screening of short film: How the West Was Won at the Dome which chronicles the experience of viewing the feature film, “How the West Was Won”, in a Cinerama theater.
  • Screening of feature Cinerama Adventure
  • Q&A with Producer/Director Dave Strohmaier and Producer Randy Gitsch.
$5 for Hollywood Heritage Members, $8 for non-members.
