      Welcome to Fonts In Use, Gerardo! Thank you for your contribution. Since you asked: The Cinerama logo does not use a specific typeface, but is very likely custom drawn. Nick Shinn’s Checker is similar. He mentions: “After I had completed the typeface, I came across the old Cinerama logo (1952–1974), which has some resonance.”

      Hello Florian. Thanks for the link on Checker. I whish there was a condensed version, similar to Cinerama logo. I am happy to contribute to the site. I have loved it since the begining and now I hope to bring some interesting things to the table. Do you guys identify fonts as well?
