New Fillmore Theatre 1329 Fillmore Street, San Francisco, CA - 3D Presentation

3D Presentation

House of Wax is a 1953 American period mystery-horror film directed by Andre de Toth and released by Warner Bros. A remake of the 1933 WB film, Mystery of the Wax Museum, the movie stars Vincent Price as a disfigured sculptor who repopulates his destroyed wax museum by murdering people and using their wax-coated bodies as displays.

The film premiered in New York on April 10, 1953, and had a general release on April 25, making it the first 3D film with stereophonic sound to be presented in a regular theater and the first color 3D feature film from a major American studio.

Man in the Dark, released by Columbia Pictures, was the first major-studio black-and-white 3D feature and premiered two days before House of Wax.

In 1971, House of Wax was re-released to theaters in 3D with a full advertising campaign. Newly struck prints of the film in Chris Condon’s single-strip StereoVision 3D format were used for this release. Another major re-release occurred during the 3D revival of the early 1980s. Warner Bros. released a loose remake of the film in 2005.

Greg & Film*** We saw many years ago a 70mm film print of ‘House Of Wax’ in stereophonic surround sound and dual 3D at the Fox Grauman’s Chinese Hollywood Theatre. Both left and right images were on the same single 70mm film frame I think It was the great StereoVision system.
