Released in 1952, This Is Cinerama was the first wide-screen motion picture ever produced. It was also the first movie to incorporate multi-track magnetic stereophonic sound, invented by Hazard Reeves. This Is Cinerama Aat the Movies features the film's original symphonic score, which was written by Max Steiner, Paul Sawtelle and Roy Webb and performed by Louis Forbes leading the Cinerama Philharmonic Orchestra, which brought together first-chair musicians from the New York Philharmonic, New York Metropolitan Opera and Toscanini's NBC Symphony Orchestra.
