Celebrating 100 Years of 3D Cinema

The first documented exhibition of a stereoscopic 3D motion picture took place on June 10, 1915 at the Astor Theatre in New York. The historic footage does not survive.  But nearly 35 years ago, the 3-D Film Archive began our effort to locate, save and restore lost 3D films. Over the past three decades, many rare stereoscopic treasures dating back to 1922 have been located and preserved by the 3D Film Archive. The 3-D RARITIES Blu-ray was released June 16, 2015 by Flicker Alley.

The ALSCC is an odd device resembling a cane stuck to an oversized coffee dispenser.  To use the ALSCC, an astronaut simply plopped it down over an area of interest and pulled the trigger. A small flash fired, capturing two, offset images measuring nine square inches each. Combined in a single anaglyph, these images of the moon soil become a 3D picture visible with red/cyan glasses.
