This was just announced on

The World 3-D Film Expo III will be held at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California, September 6-15, 2013. The 10 day festival will pay tribute to the 60th anniversary of what many film historians regard as the "Golden Age" of 3-D, and will include screenings of the John Wayne western Hondo (1953), the Vincent Price horror film House of Wax (1953), Cole Porter's musical Kiss Me Kate (1953), the sci-fi thriller It Came From Outer Space (1953), and even later 3-D films, such as Jaws 3-D (1983). Lesser-known titles, such as The French Line (1953) with Jane Russell and Second Chance (1953) with Robert Mitchum, will also be included.

The Expo is partnering with digital 3-D projection sponsor RealD to present a number of screenings in RealD 3-D including Alfred Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder 3D (1954) and Jack Arnold's sci-fi/horror classicCreature from the Black Lagoon 3D (1954). Stefan Droessler, 3-D historian and head of the Munich Film Museum, will present an in-depth overview of "European 3-D Filmmaking 1935-1953," including long-lost footage from the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

The festival will also be home to several premieres including the Los Angeles Premiere of the 1946 Russian 3-D adaptation of Robinson Crusoe. It will also mark the World Premiere of the stereoscopic version of the 1954 Korean War drama, Dragonfly Squadron. The film was only released in a 2D version during its initial release and has never been seen by audiences in 3-D. Newly-restored 35 mm prints of the shorts Rocky Marciano, Champion vs. Jersey Joe Walcott, Challenger and College Capers will be screened in 3-D for the first time in 60 years. Most programs being presented at the festival will be shown in archival double-system 35 mm. prints, many of them the last known copies.

"The technical demands of presenting 3-D cinema and the increasing difficulty of finding prints means that for many of the films presented, this may be the last time they are ever screened in this format" says producer and programmer Jeff Joseph. Tickets for the festival are available on the Expo website at or by calling the Expo Box Office.
