A cruise ship wending it way across the South Pacific, with visits to Hawaii, Tahiti, Tonga and Fiji, includes a film crew shooting footage of native culture.
Camera-captured in 1958 in “Cinerama South Sea Adventure,” it sounds pretty colorful, doesn’t it?
Now a legendary travelogue, “South Sea,” one of the great exercises in wide-screen projection from the late ’50s and a real journey back in time, also includes a cavalcade of dance history; it’s full of indigenous dance.
The film screening is the centerpiece of a fun Saturday night at the Egyptian Theatre, when the American Cinematheque hosts it 11th annual “Tiki Night.”
Evening, which starts at 5:30 pm with drinks, also includes Tiki Marketplace and live performances from King Kukulele & The Friki Tikis and the Polynesian Paradise Dancers!
