    While some of these titles I have seen numerous times in 70mm, this is a pretty impressive collection. The big news of course is PORGY AND BESS. Not sure what they will show... the only extant 70mm print I have ever heard about had German subtitles. LORD JIM is also a rarity.
    I do hope that the east coast 70mm fans will come out and support this. Most of the films are showing on weekends, so it should make the trip pretty easy. If this is not supported, people should not complain when this is the last time we have an opportunity to see these films in their original format.

    Sad to report that the screenings of PORGY AND BESS have been cancelled due to rights issues. Must admit that was the one film in this festival I most wanted to see. C'mon Gershwin and Goldwyn estates... let this movie be seen!

    Considering what they let them do to the show itself in the current, not-approved-by-Stephen Sondheim Broadway revival, there is no reason not to let it out.
