CURIOSITY CORNER-MOVIE SMELLS

 
Movies and gimmicks; we've had a good few. 3-D, Emergo, Shock Sections, Hypno-vision, Duo Vision, Hypno Vista, DBox, Psychorama, Percepto and Sensourround to name but a few but surely the most bizarre gimmick has been to use the viewers sense of Smell. I saw Polyester at The screen on the Green in 1981 and was lucky enough to experience Odorama in all it's dubious glory. I seem to recall that each smell was indistinguishable from the next. Here are some other examples of the smell of cinema, or should that be The Cinema of smell?
