Cinema 3.0: A Classic Hollywood Typeface is Updated

The Cinema font includes many new features.
David Occhino Design has released an upgrade to its popular Cinema font, a 1940s art deco design from Hollywood's Golden Age.

Many improvements and enhancements have been applied to Cinema 3.0. The character set now features over 200 glyphs including international characters, extended punctuation and other typographic and symbols. The typeface has also been improved with the refinement of the small caps design.

"Cinema was one of my first art deco display faces," remarked David Occhino, the designer of both the original version as well as the update. "I wanted this new version to be more useful, so I refined the look of the glyphs so that it works really well in longer headlines."

Users of previous versions of Cinema are encouraged to upgrade, and upgrade prices have been kept to a minimum. "We're offering a free upgrade to those who recently purchased Cinema," explained Occhino, "and those who have used Cinema for years will pay $15 or less for an upgrade." Previous users have been contacted with upgrade options.

A single-user, non-commercial license for the Cinema font can be purchased for $30 from the David Occhino Design FontShop. The typeface includes four styles, Regular, Medium, Bold and Outline. Additional information and samples can be viewed on the Cinema font page of the David Occhino Design website.
