Thomas Hauerslev, who runs the fantastic retro movie web site In70mm.com, provides this full schedule for this year's Widescreen Weekend festival in Bradford, England. (Thomas also does yeoman work as one of the programmers for the festival.) The theme of this year's program is the celebration of the 60th anniversary of Cinerama. It will be a treasure trove of films rarely seen in their original format, ranging from three-panel Cinerama to Super Panavision 70 prints. Titles include the rarely-seen Russian Adventure, How the West Was Won, Ryan's Daughter, This is Cinerama, Cinerama Adventure, Around the World in 80 Days and The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm, shown for the first time in 40 years in three panel Cinerama (co-sponsored by Cinema Retro). The festival draws classic film historians from around the world, this year including Kevin Brownlow and Sir Christopher Frayling. Cinerama historians Dave Strohmaier ad Randy Gitsch will be premiering two exciting films: a documentary about the Cinerama production Windjammer and rare, never-before-seen outtakes of cast and crew interviews from their documentary about the making of How the West Was Won. The dynamic duo will also be updating attendees about their incredible latest venture: shooting a new production in 3 panel Cinerama! As usual, the Pictureville Cinema's dedicated projectionist, Duncan McGregor, will be working tirelessly to ensure this historic event will live up to expectations. All this- and a bar on the premises, too! In 2010, Cinema Retro's Movie Magic tour took attendees to the Pictureville cinema to see a special showing of How theWest Was Won. All classic movie lovers should make an attempt to attend this wonderful, annual event. Click here to read more and see full schedule. - Lee Pfeiffer and Dave Worrall.
