The year the World 3D Film Expo will return for a third time to the Egyptian Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, USA from September 6-15, 2013. The ten-day film festival will pay tribute to the 60th anniversary of what many film historians regard as the “Golden Age” of 3D movies, and will include screenings of the John Wayne western HONDO, the Vincent Price horror film HOUSE OF WAX, Cole Porter’s musical KISS ME KATE, and sci-fi thriller IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE., and even later 3-D films, such as 1983’s JAWS 3-D. Lesser-known titles, such as THE FRENCH LINE with Jane Russell and film noir SECOND CHANCE with Robert Mitchum, will also be included.
The Expo is partnering with RealD to present a number of screenings in RealD 3D including Alfred Hitchcock’s DIAL M FOR MURDER and Jack Arnold’s sci-fi/horror classic CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON. Stefan Droessler, 3D historian and head of the Munich Film Museum, will present an in-depth overview of “European 3D Filmmaking 1935-1953,” including long-lost footage from the 1936 Berlin Olympics. The festival will also be home to several premieres including the Los Angeles Premiere of the 1946 Russian 3-D adaptation of ROBINSON CRUSOE. September 14th will mark the World Premiere of the stereoscopic version of the 1954 Korean War drama, DRAGONFLY SQUADRON. The film was only released in a flat version during its initial release, and has never been seen by audiences in 3D. Newly-restored 35 mm prints of shorts “Rocky Marciano, Champion vs. Jersey Joe Walcott, Challenger” and “College Capers” will be screened in 3D for the first time in 60 years.
The World 3D Film Expo was first presented at the Egyptian Theatre in 2003 and then again in 2006 and this year marks the third one that gives you the unique chance to see a great classic 3D film festival showing some of the most popular 3D movies that were made during the Golden Age of stereoscopic cinema in the early 1950’s. This is your chance to see some real 3D movie classics that you normally cannot find anywhere else in 3D or even in 2D, so if you miss it you literally may not be able to see them projected this way again.
