I was only 11 when "Earthquake" came out. I saw it but not in a theatre equipped with Sensurround. Today, I finally saw it the way it was meant to be seen and loved it!

We attended a screening of the 1974 Universal classic, "Earthquake" introduced by actress, Geneviève Bujold at the Egyptian theater which was fully setup with "Sensurround Sound" (Wow was it soooo cool) . Breifly meeting Geneviève Bujold was great too because she had so much energy and enthusiasm. Her moments in the film were really great especially her support of Charelston Heston's role establishing their character's relationships and setting up the drama. It was a sellout over 400 filled this awesome historic theater, perhaps the best popcorn anywhere. I saw this movie in 1974 and this screening sure brought back memeories of those emotion packed action films of that era. In Earthquake, all the many characters are established in the film that all come together at that big moment in the story much like the "Best Film", "Crash" did just a few years ago. The special effects of this movie was so awesome too and it was state of the art during that time period.

What the film had going for it was the Surroundsound and A-Listers, as well as the campy lines such as "What the Hell do we do now?!" by the civil engineer as the LA dam is breaking. Actually, pretty much all the dialogue was high camp, kept the audience rolling all the way through. However, the story was really lacking -- not as good as Poseidon Adventure or Towering Inferno. I bet many who attended Saturday night's show were there to be entertained by Surroundsound and the camp elements. Victoria Principal in her Afro wig and black leather ensemble -- that's a treasure from the vault of Hollywood cinematic moments!
