How the West Was Won (U)

Don’t miss a rare chance to experience the wonders of 3-strip Cinerama with this screening of the classic western.

Bringing together three of the best western directors and featuring a remarkable cast of Hollywood greats (Henry Fonda, James Stewart, Debbie Reynolds), How the West Was Won tells the story of a pioneering family from the 1830s to the Civil War.

Presented in their original Technicolor splendour, the panoramic scenes are spectacular. This 3-strip Cinerama presentation on Pictureville’s deeply curved screen is the only way to see this film.

Introduction

This screening will be introduced by Sir Christopher Frayling.
