After sold out screenings at the MOMA in New York this summer, we premiere this amazing restoration in the UK. It has taken over 30 years for the 3-D Film Archive to assemble and restore the material in 3-D Rarities, an eye-popping collection of ultra-rare and long-lost movies. This compilation includes: Kelley’s Plasticon Pictures, the earliest extant 3-D demonstration film from 1922 with incredible footage of Washington and New York City; New Dimensions (aka Motor Rhythm) the first domestic full color 3-D film originally shown at the New York World’s Fair in May 1940; Boo Moon, an excellent example of color stereoscopic animation from 1953; Doom Town, a controversial anti-atomic testing film which was mysteriously pulled from theatrical release after a few play-dates in July 1953; I’ll Sell My Shirt, a burlesque comedy unseen in 3-D for over 60 years; The Maze coming attraction trailer with fantastic 3-D production design by the legendary William Cameron Menzies, and much more..
