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.

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.
