3D Classic Film Series

When: Sat., July 8 2017

Way back in the 1950s, Hollywood studios started showing movies in widescreen formats and in 3-D to combat the growing popularity of television. Between 1952 and 1955, Hollywood studios produced 50 3-D films using a dual projection system that required audience members to wear polarized lenses. But because of issues keeping the images in sync, studios quickly lost interest. Now, digital technology has corrected the synchronization issue, and the classic 35-mm, 3-D films are available on new digital prints. To showcase the vintage films, the Cedar Lee Theatre will screen five "golden-era classics" as part of its 3-D Classic Film series. Kiss Me Kate, the 1952 musical-within-a-musical of a play-within-a-play, screens at 11 a.m. today and at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Tickets are $7. (Niesel)
