"Dial M For Murder" in 3D at the Goldwyn June 19

With a resurgence in 3-D interest generated largely by less cumbersome digital technology we've seen the studios inspired to go digging in the vaults for some less  frequently seen titles.

Hitchcock's "Dial M For Murder" (Warner Bros., 1953) played most of its initial engagements flat but a few were in 3-D. If you've missed it before, here's another chance to see Warner's digital restoration. By the time it came out, interest in 3-D was waning. It was a similar story for "Kiss Me, Kate."

"Murder" is playing Wednesday, June 19 at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. 

Showtime is 7:30. Tickets are only $5 -- but get them in advance as it will probably sell out.

More information is on the AMPAS website.  The photo here is from their page about the Goldwyn Theater.

It should be a great presentation. The Goldwyn uses the Dolby 3-D system which involves a color separation technology to generate separate left and right images on the screen. It's doesn't require the use of a silver screen so there's no hot-spot problem.

 For more information on the 1,012 seat state-of-the-art theatre in the Academy's headquarters building see the Goldwyn page on our Wilshire Theatres web site.
