    Description

    This is Cinerama (Cinerama Europe 1, 1961). French Grande (46" X 61").
    This is Cinerama premiered in New York City the fall of 1952, ushering in a groundbreaking viewing experience that completely awed and thrilled audiences. The Cinerama technique created wide screen images almost three times larger than that of traditional movie screens. The film's distribution was also revolutionary, as the new technology required a special setup of three projectors and multiple soundtracks. It was shown in a single theater in most cities, with reserved seats and lengthy runs, a distribution method known as the "road show." The film begins in black and white in standard 4:3 aspect ratio, with a narration of the evolution of motion picture entertainment, from cave paintings intimating movement, up to the introduction of color and sound. Audiences then hear "This is Cinerama" and the screen expands into the full Cinerama aspect ratio and color. A series of breathtaking vignettes unfold before the viewer's dazzled eyes and ears -- Niagara Falls via helicopter, gondolas floating down the canals of Venice, the Vienna Boys Choir performing "Tales from the Vienna Woods," a crowd in a Madrid arena watching a bullfight, and the plunging Rockaway Playland Roller Coaster, depicted on this French poster. Heritage is delighted to offer in the July Signature Auction this format, one of several created, from the picture's 1961 release in France. Only signs of light use can be detected, including misfolds, edge tears, and cross fold separations. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
