Here's a shot of Ramine from the 2012 digital premiere of the film:

Apparently there may be a Blu-ray release based on the sales of some other Cinerama discs being released next month. I am sure home viewing wouldn't quite be the same, but it seems better than nothing for those of us who can't make it to Hollywood.

Thanks Plainotiki for the great news. With this Blu-ray release as well as the recent Hell's Half Acre Blu-ray release Its been a great month for Tiki Movies. It nice to read about others with the same wonderment about this film. Apparently some of us also have posters and programs about this documovie and not have seen it. Lucky for you that went to see it. And lucky for all of us to be able to buy the Blu-ray. Long live Tiki!

Hey, thanks to you for the news as well! I caught Hell's Half Acre on Netflix streaming a while back, but had no idea it had been released on Blu-ray (and no longer streaming).

P.S. Your website is awesome!

If you try to preorder the new DVD, it says "All orders placed now will not be scheduled to ship until on, or just before, Tuesday, October 22, 2013 in conjunction with the 50th Anniversary Pacific Cinerama Dome Theatre Celebration Events.)" Let's hope this means that there will be new showings of the movie at the Cenerama Dome shortly before the release!

I just received the new Blu-ray disc of CINERAMA: South Seas Adventure. So far I wave watched the part when they go to Hawaii. I find you need to sit close to the screen to feel like your in the picture. Great picture resolution. Looking at Hawaii in pre-1958 makes you realize how much of the island paradise is gone and will never be again. I can't wait to view the rest of the film.

You can still get $10 off the price if you purchase it before Nov 2nd.

Finally got my Blu-ray/DVD copy. Love the Cinerama screen and the curtain effects. Great photography, a must for any tiki/South Seas movie collection. Here are some shots to wet your appetite:

Tahiti paradise

Fiji warriors

Maori performers

Tikis marking Gauguin's old hangout

One of many shots of Don the Beachcomber in Waikiki

Tahines saying goodbye
