Randy Gitsch and Dave Strohmaier are welcomed onboard by Christian Radich Foundation Managing Director and the evening’s cruise host Einar Corwin.

That screening, filling all of the Tancred auditorium’s 196 seats, was followed by a 4-hour long cruise in the Oslo fjord on the film’s star vessel, the 3-masted windjammer, Christian Radich. Stars of the 1958 motion picture, Jan Halversen (“Cadet #34“), Tore Bilet (“Cadet #85”) and Edvard Hokland (“Cadet #22”) joined other sail-training and cruise veterans, and seaworthy film fans on the mini Cinemiracle Adventure. All enjoyed delicious Norwegian fish soup during their time onboard.
Tore Bilet, a young cadet on the 1956-57 voyage, talks to Gitsch and Strohmaier on the poop deck.

The tour showcased the digitally remastered 3-panel Cinerama library titles complete to-date and commenced on April 18 in Karlsruhe’s Schauberg Cinerama Theate. It then moved on to Innsbruck, Austria’s Leo Kino, followed by an engagement at Dusseldorf’s Metropol and ended at Oslo’s Cinemateket.

Dave Strohmaier, Randy Gitsch, Tom March and Norwegian Film Institute Curator, Jan Eberholst Olsen, all know it’s a BIG show when “Windjammer” plays at Oslo’s Cinemateket. Picture by Jannicke Stendal Hansen.

Dave Strohmaier, the Director of all the Cinerama title’s digital re-mastering, and Randy Gitsch, producer on them made 28 presentations over the length of the tour, including a restoration production seminar before students at Innsbruck University. Cinerama enthusiast, producer and avid photographer, Tom March, joined his American friends on the tour.
