    Unfortunately, with the exception of certain known, high quality venues, going to the cinema these days has gotten quite like pulling off a highway on a long trip, to the only spot where one might safely spend the night. Once you enter the parking area, under that big signs reading " otel,"...

    For those who wonder how a film frame fits within theatrical guidelines, here's a sample frame with an RP91 overlay. 5% is considered acceptable for cropping in theatrical. Keep in mind that the actual projected image may appear rectangular, but may be a trapezoid. The far sides would be...

    That print, and any other 1994s, was struck from a printing dupe, derived from a 65 IP of the restoration. They were beautiful prints, by deluxe. RAH

    As I recall, all 70mm prints were struck by deluxe, Hollywood, and all were beautifully made. There was only one printing element, and all striping and sounding would have been performed in LA. RAH

    I'm confused by your statement, and must wonder what you saw. The 1994 prints were substantially produced from the original camera negative to 5243 positive and negative stock, which is virtually grainless. As was the print stock. The only true grain that would have been seen for those prints...

    Impossible. The sound design is not being surpassed. It is only being presented via newer technology, which allows transparency of the original recordings. RAH

    My opinion. HDR is a plus for modern films. For older productions, it could easily open a can of worms, never to be closed. Many colorists have problems dealing with older elements. Add differential fade by layer, individual alien layers replaced to 100%, differential fade at perfs, splices...

    35mm prints were struck in 1964-5, and again in 1970. If it were up to me I wouldn't strike 35s today. No need. Only frustration and cost.

    It's always a pleasure having Bruce visit, as he knows his stuff. He is also the only non-Fotokem viewer to have seen a sample compressed Blu-ray, on a 25 foot screen. RAH
