23jul2:00 pm4:20 pmEvent OverThe Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm (Smilebox Version): Saturday Movie Matinee

Event Details

Scranton Public Library will be presenting a special Saturday Movie Matinee of the restored “Smilebox” version of 1962’s The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm on Saturday, July 23rd at 2 PM in the Henkelman Room (2nd Floor).

The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm  was one of only two narrative feature films to be released in Cinerama (the other being 1962’s How the West Was Won).  The library screening will feature the recently brilliantly restored edition of the film (including Entrance and Exit Music, as well as Intermission) in Smilebox, a curved image recreating (on a smaller scale) how the film was originally released in Cinerama theaters  in 1962.

Wilhelm (Laurence Harvey) and Jacob Grimm (Karl Boehm) are writing a historical manuscript for a local duke (Oscar Homolka), but the project is late because Wilhelm spends his time gathering fairy tales. When Wilhelm drops part of the manuscript in a creek, catches pneumonia while retrieving it. Near death, he dreams of various characters that want to be written — and upon his recovery, a shaken Jacob agrees to work on a book of fairy tales with him, beginning the brothers’ illustrious career.

The film is Rated G and has a running time of 2 hours and 20 minutes.
