Flicker Alley was born out of a passion for cinematic history and a desire to bring filmmakers and films from out of the past to new audiences and renewed recognition. The company was founded in 2002 by Jeffery Masino who drew on a lifelong enthusiasm and fascination with silent film as well as classic, experimental and independent cinema. A goal of Flicker Alley is to contribute to the on-going interest in our film heritage through the creation of new, high-quality digital editions for broadcast, steaming and home video distribution.
The Flicker Alley brand has grown to enjoy national and international critical acclaim and is regularly featured in annual “Best Of” lists. The company is a three-time National Society of Film Critics Film Heritage Award recipient for publishing “rare early U.S. and foreign silent film” (2009, 2010, and 2011). The name “Flicker Alley” was the nickname of Cecil Court, London W.C.2., the business center of the British film industry during the silent film era.
Photographed over an eight-year period by Russia’s top filmmakers, CINERAMA'S RUSSIAN ADVENTURE brings together some of the most exquisite, jaw-dropping, and beautiful sequences from over six Soviet Kinopanorama productions (the Russian equivalent of three-panel Cinerama). The film’s locations stretch from one end of Russia to the other, from the snow-covered countryside to the majestic subways of Moscow, from the deck of a whaling ship to the front seats of the Bolshoi Theater. Bing Crosby narrates the journey, offering both a grand and intimate view of a country and culture so often cited and yet so seldom seen.
Flicker Alley, Cinerama Inc. and the family of Hal Dennis / Hal Dennis Productions are proud to present CINERAMA'S RUSSIAN ADVENTURE in the Smilebox® Curved Screen Simulation. The film has been digitally remastered, and beautifully so, allowing audiences to experience – in the words of Bing Crosby – “what I believe will be our most exciting journey…”
