On Sunday, Jan. 26, The American Cinematheque will present a rare dye-transfer print of the classic fantasy film The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, featuring stop motion animation by Ray Harryhausen. The screening is part of an 18- film retrospective dubbed Technicolor Dreams: The 3rd Festival of Dye-Transfer Technicolor At The Movies, running Jan. 17 – 26 at the Egyptian Theater on Hollywood Blvd.
Directed by the legendary Nathan Juran, who passed away in October, 7th Voyage will be shown at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday as part of a double feature. In addition to Harryhausen’s beloved special effects, the film features one of Bernard Herrmann’s most memorable scores and cinematography by longtime Harryhausen collaborator Wilkie Cooper (Jason and the Argonauts, First Men in the Moon). The second feature is Roger Corman’s 1964 adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s Masque Of The Red Death.
Tickets are on sale for $9 general, $6 Cinematheque members and $8 seniors (65+ years) and students with valid ID card. For more information, visit http://www.americancinematheque.com.
