When “3D” movies periodically flare up as the New Big Thing (it’s happened several times), count on opportunistic revivals of vintage stereoscopic horror/sci fare from the 1950s, like the Vincent Price House of Wax. But the Cedar Lee Theatre nostalgically screens a less well-known blockbuster of yesteryear that promised to bring images right into your lap (and compete with 1950s Hollywood’s worst enemy, TV).
Those Redheads from Seattle is a freshly restored, colorful 1953 Paramount Yukon-western-musical that served partially as a launch for Toledo-born pop singer Teresa Brewer (her lone acting role). So rarely is this shown in the original 3D that the theater is hosting two VIPs, film historians Bob Furmanek and Greg Kintz, for a live Q&A on the Saturday show. You won’t even need the funny glasses to see them!
The film could well be considered G-rated by today’s standards. An additional screening (minus the guests) happens Tuesday night. Admission is $7 for each show.
