I'm very excited about this news. As we have done for the past six shows, we will again be screening a film the night before the CineSea Film Collectors Gathering. This screening will take place at 7:30 PM on Friday, April 27th at the Ocean Holiday Resort in Wildwood Crest, New Jersey.
What's different this time is the screening will be in 35mm....and 3D! David Baker & Terry Bange of The Ohio Film Collector Exchange will be premiering their new portable 35mm projection system at CineSea and to make the occasion even more memorable, they have offered to screen their stunning print of the 1953 sensation House of Wax! This print was struck in 1981 for the polarized 3D re-release.
For this special occasion we're departing from our usual procedure of choosing the Friday Night Feature (submissions followed by on line voting). We will return to that method for CineSea 18. So please join us in Wildwood for House of Wax on Friday night (bring your paddleballs) and spend Saturday browsing the dealers' tables and watching film!
Admission is free.

-------------------- I think there's room for just one more film.....

Congratulations to all involved in pulling off what must surely be a remarkable first at a film collecting convention! Portable 35mm is impressive enough but portable 35mm 3D is something else! Is it a print of the type that has under/over images split via a lens, or will two 35mm projectors be locked in sync?

Doug - Not all 3-D glasses are the same .
The most common variety are polarized 3D glasses. It was Edwin Land who introduced polarized 3D images into films in 1936. They work the same way as anaglyphs, deceiving the eyes into seeing only one 3D image by restricting the amount of light that enters the eyes, but this time in general. The screen presents two images though orthogonal polarizing filters which are likewise contained in the 3D glasses themselves. As opposed to the red and cyan lenses of anaglyph glasses, these have a yellowish-brown tint. Orthogonal Lens Filters operate by filtering light in a number of ways. Linear , circular and elliptical . We are using " passive " 3-D Polarized glasses , not Anaglyph or shutter glasses .
