There have been at least a few showings of KMK in 3-D in the last couple
of years.  For example, see:

It was also shown at the Oak St. Cinema in Minneapolis in fall 2000,
using dual-projection and polarized glasses.

Subject: Kiss Me Kate in 3-D

I still haven't seen _Kiss Me Kate_, and I didn't know it was shot in
3-D until I read about it in yesterday's newspaper.  Is there any way to
see it in 3-D?  The article implied that the 3-D version is composed of
different takes, based on what Ann Miller said.  The article was off the
AP, so I imagine someone else might have read it and can correct me.
Anyone know how one can see this?  I understand Turner owns it.  One
would think they'd release it through Rhino, which handles the TCM CDs,
since they've released a number of 3-D movies on VHS and DVD, even
though.  I've heard complaints about the quality of 3-D in home formats,
whcih I presume makes them hesitant.  FWIW, a couple of years ago I went
to a midnight show of House of Wax in 3-D on Hallowe'en, and kept the
glasses.  The 3-D didn't work especially well, and some of my friends
said they couldn't even tell it was 3-D, but had to wear the glasses so
the double image would be less bothersome.

On the other hand, I heard a shaven-headed tough-looking guy shout "that
beat the s---t out of _Scream_" after it was over.
