When 3-D TV was introduced there was not much to see which I think is the main reason it did not catch on.

But why watch 3-D movies on a TV screen no matter how big when you can see them on a BIG screen with a 3-D projector?

I have perhaps the best set-up for viewing 3D movies at home or in a theater (The Cineforum being a combination of both) in Canada and perhaps in the world.

I also have one of the world’s largest 3D movie archives.

Reg Hartt films THE MAD DALTON (Peter Sumadh) in 3D at The CineForum: . 

3-D was made for birds, bugs and fish. I love watching birds, bugs and fish in 3-D. Thankfully there are now many great 3-D documentaries (many in Imax).

Hollywood and the rest of the world continues to make new 3-D movies.

Thanks to the people at THE 3-D FILM ARCHIVE many classic 3-D movies have been restored. They look better than when they were first shown.

Twilight Time had some great 3-D releases that are out there. After years of waiting I finally saw Rita Hayworth in 3-D in SADIE THOMPSON. Wow!

We’re in for a long haul here.

Below I have listed the best sources for 3-D movies, etcetera.

Now while life is getting flat add an extra dimension.

P.S. I converted my field sequential dvd 3D collection to over/under Blu-ray. If there’s a title you must have and can’t find get in touch.
