Just wondering about that.  What an opportunity for one of those one-day couple-of-showings events around the country.  With, of course, plenty of emphasis on how this one can soon be enjoyed at home in all its glory etc etc etc .....

Is this the only theater in the country showing this?

 

Yes, because it's a send-off party for the new blu-ray. The only other screening is at the Egyptian in Hollywood on September 6 to start the World 3-D Film Expo.

 

Ironic that when there was no home video market HOUSE OF WAX was re-released in 3-D nationwide, in 1971 (when I first saw it about a gazillion times) and in 1981. It was quite a crowd pleaser on both occasions. It received numerous bookings across the country in 2003 and 2006 following the Expos 1 and 2, but nothing like a nationwide release. I think the chance for a nationwide release has come and gone for films of this vintage.

When I saw it in 1981 (or thereabouts), the theater was packed and the audience was very enthusiastic.

Any news on the sound? I know WB has the mono and surround tracks and Chase did a stereo conversion for the DVD. I hope its not 1.0

Is that mono spread over 2 channels to give us left and right speaker mono sound. ?

We will have complete details on the original Warnerphonic audio for HOUSE OF WAX and will tell exactly what was done for the 3-D Blu-ray.

 

We played a part in restoring the original 1953 Intermission card, unseen in sixty years!

The new 3-D restoration on this landmark production is outstanding.

 

Watch the 3-D Film Archive site for our upcoming article and review.

 

It's coming soon...

I would be happy with mono center and mono surround. I hope they used the surround track that they have.

 

I now see they have "Dolby Digital Audio English 192 kbps 2.0 / 48 kHz / 192 kbps / DN -4dB / Dolby Surround" listed. Maybe that's the same one from the DVD?

My copy just arrived. Will be watching tonight, if I can squeeze it in.

I just got it delivered today, watched various scenes just to check the disc out, i noticed ghosting, i picked a scene where a police officer had buttons all the way down his uniform, i went into the 3D settings and switched perspective from 0 to +1, it got rid of the excess ghosting, the buttons were now very good, so i'm taking my own advice that i gave above and it does work, still a little background ghosting but nothing too bad and the worst is cured, i'm using a Samsung E6500 plasma, those with that set might want to try changing perspective to +1, anything above or below that isn't good.

My Panny plasma is set to +1, and I've noticed a significant reduction in ghosting on other titles as well (Hugo), plus it makes the menu float out in front of the screen. Very cool.

I'm using Panasonic 3D glasses from 2012 with the Samsung, i wonder if you are too. ?

I suspect they are the 2012 model, as they are Bluetooth rather than IR.

No ghosting when viewed on my new BenQ W7000 DLP projector using generation 3 BenQ glasses.

 

Some mild ghosting during certain scenes on my older Panny PT-AE7000u. But still very watchable.

I finally got to watch this last night, and I was really thrilled with the results. Much brighter and clearer than the theatrical showing I saw in the 1980s, and even though it's obvious Warners had to struggle a little bit with the unwieldy WarnerColor, the 3D effects made me chuckle with giddy pleasure.

 

This is a disc I will revisit many times over the coming years.

 

And I certainly did jump when Bronson leapt into that shot near the end. I knew it was coming, and it still startled me!
