All-Digital Sound Pic Is A Fest First

The first motion picture with all digital sound will be premiering at the Cannes Film Festival.

“Final Approach,” from FilmQuest Pictures, will be screened at the Bouri Theater which has been newly equipped with the Eastman Kodak/Optical Radiation Corp. Cinema Digital Sound system.

This will mark the first presentation of a theatrical feature entirely recorded, mixed, mastered and released in digital sixtrack sound.

“Final Approach” was produced and directed by Eric Steven Stahl with a budget of $12.8 million. Stahl also made “Digital Dreams,” a $7.5 million half-hour short and produced and directed the first digital stereo televisio commercial for Chevrolet.

Cinema Digital Sound was introduced last year and was initially used for “Dick Tracy,” “Edward Scissorhands” and “The Doors.”

The first screening of “Final Approach” is on May 13, with four additional screenings May 14 to 18. Foreign distribution of the film, which stars James B. Sikking, Hector Elizondo, Madolyn Smith and Kevin McCarthy, will be handled by Intercontinental Releasing Corp.
