Welcome to "Cinema Museum Schauburg" and our 3rd Widescreen Weekend.

Since 2005 we have held several weekend-long festivals, with the three-day Todd-AO weekend in October. The Todd-AO festival will be held again this year for the sixth time and is as always dedicated to the reproduction, research and historical appreciation of the 70mm format.

“In Sensurround” 5-6 Juni 2010 - German

Todd-AO Festival, Schauburg, Karlsruhe, Germany


 
In addition to the Todd-AO festivals, we have also started a Widescreen Weekend in June, and previously festivals include "In Technicolor, CinemaScope & stereophonischen Magnet-Ton" (2008) and "In VistaVision, Technicolor and Perspecta sound" (2009). Both of which have been very well received with our audience. We continue this tradition and launch our most ambitious festival so far on June 5 and 6, 2010.

We will celebrate the 1970s and perhaps the most unique of all cinema sound systems - Universal Picture's SENSURROUND. Not seen - or heard - regularly in nearly 30 years, it is again - for one time only, possible to listen to the magic of Sensurround. It has taken us three years to plan the sound system and the prints, and we are very proud to announce that we will show all 5 official Sensurround films during one LOUD weekend in June 2010.

We pay tribute to a "lost" sound format for two unique days only. All films are presented in their original German version and full SENSURROUND sound. You can only see and HEAR this in a cinema, so don't think twice about it. Tickets are selling fast. The Schauburg cinema is the only place to experience SENSURROUND.

About Sensurround

 
The Sensurround Model II system developed by MCA Universal brings a new dimension to the motion picture theatre. It is designed to generate special audible and sub audible effects not yet possible to reproduce on presently available systems. The audience will actually be participating in the film. The torso will vibrate. So will the diaphragm. Flesh and auditory nerves will receive the sensations one might feel while experiencing the event depicted on the screen. Rather than the structure-shaking resulting from a natural disaster, this vibrating movement is actually airborne. Although some vibration can be felt - on thin wall surfaces, the amplitude is so small that no appreciable displacement can be measured. Also, the Sensurround effects will not cause hearing damage. The system is composed of high-level electro-acoustic with solid-state power amplifiers capable of up to 1000 watts of audio power. The system develops 100 to 120 dB sound pressure level (SPL) on the "C" scale in the theatre. Read more

Los Angeles is the natural site for a film about earthquakes: they happen there frequently, and the landscape is familiar to moviegoers from thousands of films. A huge number of ongoing vignettes which include cameos from numerous celebrities and stars are tied together by the ongoing efforts of architect Graff (Charleton Heston) to rescue his estranged spoiled-rich-girl wife (Ava Gardner), while helping out with the ongoing rescue efforts taking place around him and while trying to determine what has happened to his mistress Denise (Genvieve Bujold). The rumbling sound effect designed for this film (Sensurround) won a "Best Sound" Oscar for the film in 1975. allmovie.com

An expensive war epic, Midway emulates The Longest Day and Tora! Tora! Tora! in attempting to re-create a famous World War II battle from both the American and Japanese viewpoints. The 1942 battle of Midway was the turning point of the War in the Pacific; the Japanese invasion fleet was destroyed, and America's string of humiliating defeats was finally broken. Though the battle itself was sufficiently dramatic to fill two films, Midway also has plotline involving the mixed-race relationship between Ensign Garth (Edward Albert), son of Navy Captain Matt Garth (Charlton Heston), and Haruko Sakura (Christina Kokubo), a Hawaiian girl of Japanese descent. The real-life personages depicted herein include American Admirals Nimitz (Henry Fonda), Halsey (Robert Mitchum) and Spruance (Glenn Ford), and Japanese Admiral Yamamoto (Toshiro Mifune, his voice once again dubbed by Paul Frees, whom Mifune personally selected for the job). For its original road show release, Midway was offered in the "Sensurround" process, which electronically shook and vibrated the audience's chairs during the battle sequences. allmovie.com

"Rollercoaster" - 11:00

 
"Rollercoaster" / "Achterbahn" (1:59). Filmed in: 35mm, 4 perforations, 24 frames per second. Principal photography in: Panavision. Presented on: The curved screen in 35mm Sensurround with _-track stereo. Aspect ratio: 2,39:1. Country of origin: USA. Production year: 1977 World Premiere: 10.06.1977. Germany premiere: 06.10.1977

Directed by James Goldstone. Writing credit Tommy Cook. Produced by Jennings Lang. Original Music by Lalo Schifrin. Cinematography by David M. Walsh. Film Editing by Edward A. Biery & Richard M. Sprague

George Segal (Harry Calder), Richard Widmark (Agent Hoyt), Timothy Bottoms (Young Man), Henry Fonda (Simon Davenport), Helen Hunt (Tracy Calder)

Rollercoaster was a by-product of the brief "Sensurround" craze of the 1970s. Nutsoid Timothy Bottoms sabotages an amusement-park roller coaster, killing several innocent revelers. After several other acts of terrorism, Bottoms (whose character is credited as Young Man) presents his demands to the authorities via audio tape: one million dollars, or he'll stage five roller-coaster disasters simultaneously in five different parks. Because detective Harry Calder George Segal evinces a grudging respect for the elusive extortionist, Bottoms declares that only Detective Calder will be permitted to deliver the money. Thus the stage is set for an explosive climax, which during the film's original run was accompanied by the Sensurround effect, a gimmick that electronically caused the filmgoer's chairs to begin shaking and vibrating during the "thrill scenes." As with most disaster flicks of the era, Rollercoaster is top-heavy with "guest stars," including Richard Widmark, Henry Fonda, Harry Guardino, and Susan Strasberg. Watch for 13-year-old Helen Hunt as Detective Calder's spunky daughter. allmovie.com

Presented on: The curved screen in 35mm mono with Sensurround. Aspect ratio: 1,85:1. Country of origin: USA. Production year: 1978 World Premiere: 17.09.1978. Germany premiere: 26.10.1978

After the series's cancellation, the pilot was edited together into a new theatrical release, with certain scenes trimmed or edited out completely. This release is notable for the incorporation of the Sensurround enhancement system first introduced in the film "Earthquake" in 1974, and is considered by most critics as perhaps the only film where the technology was used properly. It was, in fact, the last of only four films ever released in the US to feature Sensurround. battlestarwiki
