    Will Around the World in 80 Days ever get a special deluxe edition like The Wonderful World of The Brothers Grimm?

    Wow Roland! What a collection! Thanks for posting. I miss 70mm at the dear old Coronet (before they reduced the screen size and curvature, and some dim bulb asked that dim bulbs be put in the projectors). I guess nearly everyone abandoned carbon arc. My friends and I would take the N bus...

    Will Around the World in 80 Days ever get a special deluxe edition like The Wonderful World of The Brothers Grimm?

    IMO, if possible, it should be from one of the two original color 65mm negatives (30 fps, 24 fps, or both if necessary) and from the best 6 channel sound sources, maybe from a 35mm 6 channel magnetic sound source. In the theater, when the band at the beginning marches off the screen to the...
