For the first time since 2006, the World 3-D Film Expo will return to the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood for its third run. The ten-day festival will screen classics of the 3-D heyday. 

The lineup includes Hitchock's sole foray into 3-D, "Dial M for Murder" (1954), "House of Wax" (1935) with Vincent Price -- which Oliver Stone at CinemaCon said was the scariest film he first saw in the theater -- and camp classics "Jaws 3D" (1983) and "It Came from Outer Space" (1953), as well as lesser-known titles.

The festival, which runs September 6 to 15, has been called "Woodstock for movie geeks" by Leonard Maltin. See the complete lineup here.
