Lucas, Cameron go 3-D

ShoWest brief

In his bid to boost 3-D cinema, George Lucas will present clips of the original “Star Wars” (or as it’s been retitled, “Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope”) at a Thursday presentation. James Cameron will be on hand to present parts of his Imax 3-D release “Aliens of the Deep,” a Disney doc about underwater life.

Presentation is sponsored by Texas Instruments DLP Cinema and will use Christie CP2000 projectors.

“The biggest action, visual effects and fantasy movies will soon be shot in 3-D,” Cameron said in a statement. “And all-CG animated films can easily be converted to 3-D without additional cost if it is done as they are made.”

Christie announced deals to install its CP2000 Digital Cinema projectors in five Italian cities. Pacts are with exhibs Arcadia, CineCity and CineWorld and include the world’s largest and brightest screen, a 98-by-54-footer at the Arcadia Multiplex outside Milan.
