New York’s The Quad Cinema unleashes 3D 35mm cult film festival

3D is the state of the nation. Common like dirt. But listen up, junior. There was a time when 3D was something special. An event. A big freaking deal. Back in the days of Arch Obler’s Bwana Devil and Warner’s big budget 3D studio feature House of Wax and then, when the process became cheaper, drizzling all over the exploitation and horror genre, drawing out lazy arses from living rooms to have an experience they could only have at the cinema.

In honor of cult cinema’s long, awesome history with 3D, NYC’s The Quad Cinema is prepped to blow out a wild festival filled with all manner of cult oddities all in 3D, all on 35mm including the World Premiere of a new 3D print of Paul Naschy‘s Frankenstein’s Bloody Terror and director Worth Keeter in person to present Hit the Road Running & Rottweiler

From the press release:

With cinema having taken shape amidst such early iconic images as Broncho Billy firing into the camera, a train coming straight for the audience, and a rocket going into the moon’s eye, it was inevitable that features filmed in 3-D would opt for comparable effects so as to show off the wonder of the process. But there were more varied genres explored in the format, and by more eclectic filmmakers from all over the world, than are commonly recalled. With 3-D for today’s movies fully digitized into lockstep with DCP, the Quad takes a look back at some of the more arcane, quixotic, and disreputable uses of the process in the ’80s over-and-under boom, that was heavy on horror sequels, sci-fi adventures, idiosyncratic cult movies, and grindhouse fare. Join us for an all-35mm survey. Programmed by Harry Guerro.

Check out this mouth water list of wild film. If you’re in NYC you have to be there. If you’re not… GO!
