    Cinerama was a revolutionary film-making process introduced in 1952 as a means of prying people away from their TV sets and getting them back into movie theaters. The process employs three color cameras filming simultaneously with projection on a concave screen with stereo sound (although in the documentary "This Is Cinerama" that I watched on TCM 10/18/12 I could detect the 2 lines where the three film sections converged). Movie studios (particularly MGM and 20th Century Fox) were quick to capitalize on Cinerama, producing expensive and elaborate epics. Ultimately the process proved too costly and complicated, and there were only 2 feature length films made in authentic Cinerama, "South Seas Adventure" and "How The West Was Won". Several others were advertised as being in Cinerama; i.e. "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World!", "Grand Prix" and "2001: A Space Odyssey", but in reality it was 70mm. Also, when Cinerama was introduced there very few theaters in the U.S. equipped to show films made with the process. In Robert Osborne's comments after "This Is Cinerama", today there are only two theaters in the U.S. (Hollywood and Seattle, WA) equipped for Cinerama.
