Careful what you wish for ...
Does that postcard happen to be for the Holiday Inn in Asheville, NC?
Seriously hoping for another 80s era single strip release.
Our first 3-D Blu-ray was released on October 14, 2014.
Thank you for all your support and happy 5th anniversary from the 3-D Film Archive!
Here’s our very first review posted by Ron Epstein!
To celebrate our fifth anniversary, we're now on Instagram with our new Social Media Manager, Shane Fleming. Be sure to follow us! https://www.instagram.com/3d.film.archive/
Disc sales seem to be in inexorable decline, but is it likely that 3D streaming will happen?
I can't imagine it would, especially given that no one makes 3D sets anymore.
You are totally forgetting the potential growth of VR headset use and the perfect big screen 3D viewing experience that one gets viewing 3D on an Oculus Quest or with other VR headsets. At the moment FandangoNow is renting 3D movies on their recently created app on the Oculus Quest. Perhaps it would be profitable for the 3D Film Archive to look into online distribution in VR through a streaming service as one way of building up a fan and consumer base. Hopefully this market will grow but meanwhile the VR experience is still amazing for shared side loaded 3D movies ripped from disc so even without a 3DTV your collection can still be enjoyed with an Oculus headset. Watching 3D movies with the VR experience is the next best thing to dragging your butt to a poorly run multiplex where they are keeping image brightness down on the projector to save money. Also in VR you have the choice of viewing experience environments to enhance your viewing from various apps. I love the big theater type setting like the one below for watching 3D movie content. And while we are on the subject, the VR App BigScreen allows users to share the viewing experience with others so that 3D viewing parties are a reality. Other apps are providing the same multiuser sharing ability so spreading the 3D good news is a real possibility. Last week someone was sharing a screening of Spider-man: Into The Spider-Verse on Big Screen in 3D and it was an amazing communal experience. Don't count out 3D yet as new tech hasn't abandoned 3D like TV manufactures and retail stores.

We love presenting vintage 3-D to a new audience and college appearances give us a great opportunity to showcase our work. We have two very special events coming up later this month.
October 25; I'll be presenting REVENGE OF THE CREATURE and PARASITE in Madison at the University of Wisconsin. http://cinema.wisc.edu/series/halloween-horror#2540
October 28; Greg Kintz and I will screen THE MASK at Emerson College in Boston. Our presentation will include a discussion on the history of stereoscopic cinema and the unique challenges that we face in preserving these unique 3-D films. https://www.facebook.com/events/1786673171632245/
This special event is free and open to the public, don’t miss it!
Come do something in Sacramento, even though our theaters suck!
My alma mater! That’s gonna be a far better event than anything they had when I was a student there.
Only thing we got in my day was a lecture from a hedge fund manager that bought some of Elvis’s likeness rights. Good for him, but that doesn’t really translate as something most of us can learn from.
They're not in decline in my house!
My house is in decline due to the weight of discs!
3D discs are the one category of thing that doesn’t play nice with my HTPC. So I’m on the way to a future where the only discs actually on display are 3D titles, and I’m pretty cool with that. I already started moving them to their own shelf and it looks pretty neat to see them all together. Bob’s work fills its own section of the shelf unit, I’ll have to grab a picture sometime.
I've done the same thing and utilized a terrific video cabinet my late father built for me in the 70's to house my then VHS collection. Happily it worked equally well for Blu-ray discs and I now use it to only store my lovingly curated collection of 3D Blu-ray discs. These are all 3D and I'm happy to share this image of my collection with you. Of course the 3D Film Archive Collection holds a place of honor here. Hoping I will be able to outgrow this cabinet as releases slow but I certainly appreciate and enjoy my 3D collection regardless of what the electronics industry thinks about it and my worth as a happy consumer. So glad Bob and the gang are keeping the faith. Can't wait for the roadshow version of The Bubble which I was lucky enough to see first run in Chicago in 1966, this a Mighty Mouse 3D comic and The Mask started me on my love of 3D media. Immensely grateful that the 3D Film Archive has preserved those fabulous memories for future generations with a quality that surpasses the original presentations. Keep up great work guys!

Man, that’s a thing of beauty.
It almost looks like the right and left shelves would close, though I can’t see how both would close. Nice cabinet.
Probably a perspective issue with the photo as it closes perfectly. Thanks for the compliment.
