QUAD CINEMA in Association with Harry Guerro and Exhumed Films Presents……
Friday Oct 13th to Thurs Oct 19th, 2017
A WEEK LONG CELEBRATION OF 35MM 3-D ! !
Comin’ At Ya! 35mm 3-D
With cinema having taken shape amidst such early iconic images as Broncho Billy firing into the camera, a train coming straight for the audience, and a rocket going into the moon’s eye, it was inevitable that features filmed in 3-D would opt for comparable effects so as to show off the wonder of the process. But there were more varied genres explored in the format—and by more eclectic filmmakers from all over the world—than are commonly recalled. With today’s 3-D fully digitized into lockstep with DCP, the Quad takes a look back at some of the more arcane, quixotic, and disreputable uses of the process in the early ’80s over/under boom, that was heavy on horror sequels, sci-fi adventures, idiosyncratic cult movies, and grindhouse fare. Join us for an all-35mm survey

Frankenstein’s Bloody Terror in 3-D!!! with Dracula vs. Frankenstein and intro by Sam Sherman!

Saturday, December 9 at 8 PM – Horror fans rejoice! One of the “holy grails” of cult cinema, presumed lost forever, has been unearthed and is heading back to the big screen for the first time in nearly fifty years. Exhumed Films and Lightbox Film Center, in association with Garagehouse Pictures, are proud to present a new 35mm print of FRANKENSTEIN’S BLOODY TERROR in 3-D!
The story behind FRANKENSTEIN’S BLOODY TERROR is legendary: in 1971, famed film producer Samuel Sherman’s Independent-International Pictures secured theatrical rights to distribute the Spanish werewolf movie MARK OF THE WOLFMAN — first in the long-running series of “El Hombre Lobo” films featuring Euro-horror superstar Paul Naschy — in the United States. Sherman also infamously retitled the movie FRANKENSTEIN’S BLOODY TERROR despite the fact that neither Dr. Frankenstein nor his monster actually appears in the film! FRANKENSTEIN’S BLOODY TERROR was enjoying a successful theatrical run in the states when distributor Samuel Sherman learned that the film was originally shot in 3-D, so he decided to strike up some 3-D prints for release in the U.S. The new version opened on a handful of Los Angeles screens, but difficulties with the projection lenses prompted Sherman to pull the screenings after a brief run. While the flat version of FRANKENSTEIN’S BLOODY TERROR continued to play drive-ins for years to come and eventually became a staple of TV “Creature Feature” programs, the 3-D prints of the movie vanished entirely and the stereoscopic version passed into legend.
Now, nearly half a century later, this faux Frankenstein favorite is finally being resurrected: though long assumed to be lost or destroyed, a search of the Independent International archives has turned up the original 3-D elements; a new 35mm print has been struck by Garagehouse Pictures and it will soon be touring the United States. Using state-of-the-art 3-D viewers and technology, audiences are finally able to view FRANKENSTEIN’S BLOODY TERROR as originally intended! Please join Exhumed as we present the Philadelphia premiere of this cult classic!
Samuel Sherman, legendary drive-in movie producer, director and president of Independent-International Pictures, will be in attendance to introduce the film.
