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:


For a complete listing of showtimes, visit the Fox Theatre's online schedule. Six-movie passes for the 3-D Film Festival are available for $38 at the Fox Cinema box office, Suspect Video (605 Markham Street) and Eyesore (801 Queen St. West, above Rotate This).
