The first large-format 3-D film to open simultaneously in all three IMAX theatres in Los Angeles, Encounters In The Third Dimension uses a visit to an eccentric inventor who has invented a new 3-D device, "Real-O-Vision," as a framework for a series of spectacular three-dimensional sequences, capturing both real life events and bizarre computer-animated fantasy worlds. The film also traces a brief history of 3-D in the movies, and features a guest appearance from Elvira, Mistress of the Dark

While the film promises a tour through the history of stereoscopic effects, the survey is pretty cursory, with a lot of old Stereopticon cards and clips from 3-D movies from the form's early 1950s heyday like Bwana Devil (1952).
The film is ... not so much a satisfying story as it is a fun loving promise of things to come in the world of IMAX in 3-D.
