It seems like Flicker Alley is releasing the 1927 Chicago. It's not listed on their website, but a listing is up on Amazon. I can't tell if it will be pressed or a BD-R. I sent an inquiry to them on Facebook and they generally in my experience have always been superfast in answering my inquiries.

I listed it on our Pre-Order listing earlier today. I always thought Flicker Alley discs were pressed.
Sorry, didn't see the one listing. They also have an MOD line too. It's the MD3 that is throwing me off, when it's a MOD disc it is usually something like FA-MOD-000 but when it's a pressed disc it goes FA0000. Also, I can't find the title on their webstore.

A quick check of the Flicker Alley Blu-Rays I have quick access to indicates that the MD code means they are BD-R (eg Valentino Vol 1)

FA + a number (Cinerama titles) are pressed ...

That's what I feared and assumed. Some MOD titles are FA-MOD-[number] and then some are also FA-MD3-[number]. I assumed all the MOD titles were labeled FA-MOD-[number] but it seems all that is there's two different codes for MOD titles.

They told me months ago that it was coming via BDr. I was going to order the DVD but I decided to check with them first. And they replied saying Chicago was coming and it would be a BDr. It might still be a BDr as far as I know, but it's still cheaper than the DVD.

Does it really matter if it's a pressed disc versus BD-R?
Some players won't play BD-Rs and as I have used BD-Rs to save personal data backups, I can say I have been able to get rid of the -R part by soaking them in soapy water for a few days, leaving only the plastic base and a blue liquid left. But that was intentional ....

I have the original Flicker Alley DVD release. It's a good film based on the play that was also used for Wellman's Roxie Hart. The musical, though based on the same case, is a different beast.

This is something I would be very interested in seeing at least once because I love the musical version, but I am not sure if I would want to buy it.

Is this something that will also be made available for digital rental? I know Flicker Alley is small so they might not do that.
