PBS recently aired a documentary This is Cinerama, the biggest theater system ever created. Very interesting stuff. Even though the studios never got behind it completely, it did force the industry to move to wide screens and high fidelity stereoscopic sound. It's said that nothing to this day rivals the presence you felt. By using multiple cameras and a huge curved screen, it recreated the peripheral vision elements a flat screen doesn't have. Even IMAX pales in comparison. As digital makes more and more inroads, maybe such a system could come back and be profitable.
