Cinerama Releasing Corporation

Cinerama Releasing Corporation, or CRC, is a defunct motion picture company established in 1952 that originally released films produced by its namesake parent company for major Hollywood studios (e.g. How the West Was Won and Battle of the Bulge).

In 1963, the owner of the Pacific Coast Theatre chain purchased CRC to be an independent distributor of widescreen motion pictures produced by Cinerama, various foreign films and ABC Pictures, the film production unit of the American Broadcasting Company.[1] Films made under the CRC banner include They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, Straw Dogs, and Walking Tall. ABC Circle films ended in 1973, the last production of CRC was released in 1974.

Though CRC closed operations during 1974, its productions and reissues were temporarily handled by American International Pictures.

CRC was only a distributor of films, without retaining copyright stake over each production. Therefore, the rights to CRC releases rest with their respective production companies:
