4:00

Saturday, December 8

Presented by Robert Furmanek

Robert Furmanek, founder of the 3-D Archive, presents this eye-popping collection, including the earliest (1922) extant 3-D film; New Dimensions, the first full-color American 3-D movie, first shown at the New York World’s Fair in 1940; William Cameron Menzies’ Doom Town, a once-banned anti-nuke movie; I’ll Sell My Shirt, a racy 3-D burlesque short unseen for six decades; Boo Moon, a Casper the Friendly Ghost “stereotoon”; 3-D trailers for The Maze and Miss Sadie Thompson (starring Rita Hayworth); animated puppet sci-fi short The Adventures of Sam Space (pictured), and, for the first time in 65 years, a 3-D short starring Nat King Cole! 3-D glasses provided at no extra charge!

Robert Furmanek began his work to save our stereoscopic film heritage in 1980. As founder of the 3-D Film Archive, his organization has located and preserved dozens of vintage 3-D shorts and features. To date, they have released twelve restored titles on 3-D Blu-ray, including the critically-acclaimed 3-D RARITIES in 2015. Their most recent restoration is William Cameron Menzies’ THE MAZE; a collaborative preservation project with Martin Scorsese, The Film Foundation and Paramount Archive.
