Yes, that's great news. Blu-ray 3D hadn't really taken off so I was worried this would never get released.

Two weeks from today on November 7, our 3-D restoration of Arch Oboler's THE BUBBLE will have its world premiere at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. If you're in the area, don't miss this chance to see it on the big screen!

If you're in the New York area, it's not too late to get tickets for our 3-D FUNHOUSE presentation at MoMA. It's part of the 12th International Festival of Preservation. Don't miss it!

100 years ago today - on June 10, 1915 - the first documented exhibition of a 3-D film took place at the Astor Theatre in New York.

Unfortunately, we physical media hounds are an increasingly rare breed. I know so few who have a Blu-Ray player and the format is more than a decade old. DVD was still going stronnger than ever on its tenth year.

Yeah, I'm worried about what will happen once my TV dies. I certainly don't use 3D often, as in twice a year at most, but it seems critical for films like Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Pina, Adieu la Language, and others. I always tell people that 3D is a gimmick in 99% of cases, but it's disappointing that we may lose the capability to properly watch certain films as we please. It's the main reason I'm one of the aforementioned physical media holdouts, but I never stopped to think that 3D may take viewing options away before streaming does.

Is it possible/comfortable to watch 3D movies on VR headsets?

Definitely possible, though I think the resolution on present-day consumer grade VR is lower per eye than blu ray (PlayStation VR is 960x1080 per eye). Though I might be wrong about this- is each eye full 1080p on a 3D blu?

In any event, I definitely think VR headsets are the future of home theater, since 3D is built in and since it can overcome the limitations of a TV in terms of physical room dimensions.

It'll be interesting to see how the major studios handle their tentpole 3D releases on Blu-ray going forward. Which titles will drop a 3D option? How fast will others follow?

I know the 3D Film Archive has a few classic era 3D titles in the works, so we should get a few more 50s 3D films in the next couple years at least. And these runs are small enough that it's probable that the 3D projector crowd is the main audience already buying these.

But would Warner still release Wonder Woman in 3D on video? What about Fox and Alien: Covenant, which is one of the few 2017 releases being shot in real 3D to begin with?

And what happens when James Cameron finally releases Avatar 2 and everyone gets hyped about 3D movies again, because Cameron seems to have that effect on people?

I don't think 3D projectors are disappearing quite yet, so it's not as if the technology to watch these films will be completely off the market.

Correct. But will the major studios feel the established foothold in 3D HDTVs and projectors (current and future) will be enough to put their 3D conversion tentpole titles on 3D Blu-ray? It's just something to keep an eye on.

History says Disney will bail first.

I for one really like 3D, when it's done well. Hugo is amazing, and the classic stuff from the 50s is really wonderful in 3D.

They've already been bailing. For instance, The BFG did not have a 3D Blu-Ray release in the US.

Disney hasn't released hardly any 3-D Blu-rays, most fans have to import them from the UK

Disney has been weird. They didn't release 3D for Frozen in the US, their biggest animated hit in years, or for Big Hero 6. Then they release Zootopia 3D day-and-date with the regular release. But The Force Awakens and The Jungle Book 3D releases were 6 months after their initial releases. Moana is gonna be same-day as the regular release. They're simply unpredictable at this point.

This does bring up an interesting point, though - 3D seems to have been more successful in Europe than in the US.
