This chapter discusses autostereoscopic cinema, which has always been considered as the “holy grail” for utopian inventors. Semyon Ivanov successfully created autostereoscopic motion pictures in the 1940s, and soon a slew of motion pictures were being filmed and presented using this method. This process was followed by the single-strip 3-D systems and other works in stereography. The chapter ends with a discussion on the Festival of Britain, which marked the end of the novelty period of stereoscopic cinema.
