Win Tickets to the 3-D Film Festival at the Fox Theatre
This Friday, the Fox Theatre launches a sophomore edition of its 3-D Film Festival, a week-long celebration of the old school pop-off-the-screen experience.
The 3rd Dimension adds a whole new, um, dimension to the nine campy films running from July 17th to the 23rd. This year's lineup includes 3-D classics like Friday the 13th 3-D and House of Wax 3-D, and will also introduce a couple of rare new titles to the event: the futuristic animated Starchaser: The Legend of Orin and Revenge of the Shogun Women 3-D, an R-rated kung-fu movie.
blogTO has festival passes to give away to a few lucky readers. Check out some trailers and read on for contest entry details.
The full set is a strange mix of films from two different waves of 3-D popularity, mostly from the 50s and the 80s. There are different glasses for different films, according to Fox co-owner Andy Willick. For those hoping to collect a retro red/blue pair, these anaglyph glasses are included in your admission to Creature from the Black Lagoon 3-D and It Came From Outer Space 3-D ($8 for members, $11 for non-members).
Alfred Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder 3-D stands out in the sci-fi and horror heavy programme:
Produced by Andy Warhol, Flesh for Frankenstein (1974) is a light skin flick adaptation of Frankenstein starring a young Udo Kier. It's a must see - 3-D or not - by the looks of this clip:
Jason Voorhees will seem frighteningly close in Friday the 13th 3-D (1982), the third installment in the neverending Friday the 13th series:
And, "The 3rd Dimension is terror" according to this Jaws 3-D (1983) trailer:
