Film buffs will be treated to 15 classic widescreen movies during the Cinerama Film Festival, including extremely rare 70mm prints from studio vaults and the archives of The Academy of Motion Picture & Sciences.
The festival opens Sept. 30 at Seattle Cinerama Theatre and runs through Oct. 16. Opening weekend will feature two of only seven movies ever produced for Cinerama’s three-projector technology, This is Cinerama and How The West Was Won.
