You asked for it!

Any chance this may screen at The Rafael in San Rafael?
Thanks,
Randy
PS,
I saw the previous 3-D Rarities program there a couple of years ago and it was fantastic!

Now if only I could get a decent 3D TV. Do they even still make them? A friend has a plasma 3D Panasonic and the picture is remarkable. I bought the first 3D Rarities so I could watch it at his place.

3D TVs are hard to find now, so many people go for 3D projectors and projection screens. I myself have a 27" 3D computer monitor that I use to watch 3D Blu-rays with PowerDVD. But watching 3D on a small screen feels like looking at a dollhouse. You need a big screen to watch 3D because the life-like quality offered by 3D is better seen in LIFE SIZE. That's why watching 3D in a theater is much more impressive. On a small screen, everything is miniaturized and you feel like looking at figurines. Still, I buy and watch 3D Blu-rays quite a lot, if the content is interesting enough.

You can get a 3D capable projector for $400-600 that will display a 70-100" picture (try doing that with a TV). Shutter 3D Glasses run about $25.00 a pair. You will need a 3D blu ray player. A white wall or screen will complete this set up. There are reviews of all kinds of projectors at ProjectorCentral.com

I have a media room with an Epson 3D projector and a 120" screen. It's not as expensive as it sounds. The model of pj I own(Epson 5030) is regularly on sale, and there are cheaper models that are probably just as good. The wall was measured against the projector image size, and I purchased paint from Home Depot that is meant to be used for home theater. 3D looks amazing. I think the 3D format will survive mostly through projector's, and anyone interested in 3D should consider getting one.

Sadly, the space in my condo won't allow for a proper projection setup. But it'll be something to consider down the road.

The passive 3D in theatres (polaroid glasses) doesn't work for me, for whatever reason my brain refuses to process it after a few minutes, and the effect simply goes flat, but the active 3D I've seen with shutter glasses has been outstanding (I've watched Kiss Me Kate, Creature From the Black Lagoon and 3D Rarities on a friend's set). I have a 3D-capable OPPO blu-ray player, but had just bought a new non-3D flatscreen before that. Bad timing on my part.

In gathering material for our 3-D RARITIES II release in late 2018 from Flicker Alley, we've just found 15 minutes of unknown 35mm left and right camera outtakes from a lost Golden Age 3-D film! So far, there are no matches for actual 3-D footage but there might be more rolls where these were found.

I've been looking for rare 3-D material for more than 40 years and STILL get excited with this kind of discovery. Footage is out there, just waiting to be found and restored. The search goes on.

Keep your fingers crossed!
