    Day one purchase for me. My current copy is HD DVD. It still plays just fine but 'Field of Dreams' held the spot of my #1 favorite film from 1989 to 2001. (It moved a little lower once 'The Majestic' was released in 2001.) I look forward to the 4K version.

    I'm really glad that I didn't rush to replace my HD DVD films with Blu-ray versions. Now some of those titles are coming on 4K Blu-ray and it would have been a temptation for at triple-dip. My two HD DVD players still work fine and, frankly, I still prefer to spin up an HD DVD disc because the dang things load so much more quickly and efficiently than Blu-ray.

    This is encouraging news.
    No doubts, if the studios continue to build up their 4K offerings they - the consumers - will come.:thumbs-up-smiley:

    We visited the Field of Dreams movie site in 2011 when we (with some of our Miata-owning friends) were on the way to Chicago to start our Route 66 (Chicago to LA) adventure.

    Mark, was the house a facade or a fully functioning house?

    We’ll be there in early April.
    I believe everything is fully realized including the house.

    From what I remember the sight was originally owned by two families and the gift shop was on the line half on each side.
    I think that has been resolved now though.

    I’m really looking forward to the visit.

    Yes, it's a real house. Don Lansing owned the house (and property) and lived in it when the studio approached him about building the baseball field and shooting the film there. The Lansing's maintained the site pretty much exactly as it was seen in the film. A souvenir stand was erected (the red building you see in my first photo) and the Lansing's welcomed visitors from near and far. They did not charge admission to visit the site but they did accept donations and, of course, sold souvenirs.

    We visited in September 2011, just one month before the Lansing's sold the property. They were seeking buyers and ultimately sold the site to Mike and Denise Stillman and their company, Go the Distance Baseball LLC. Last I heard, the Stillman's were planning to be a bit more aggressive about marketing the tourist attraction in an attempt to earn more money from their investment, including offering tours of the house (the house was off limits when we were there in 2011). In fact, I think you now have to book a tour of some kind to even visit the site.

    I'm pleased we got to see it before the Lansing's sold it. We were allowed to spend as much time there as we liked and we all bought souvenirs to say thanks.

    House Tours need to be booked 24 hrs in advance.

    There are special events including this years 30th anniversary that are not free.

    House tours appear to be $20 for adult 30 minute tour.

    I’m happy just to get on the field and hang out for a while.
    You can bring lawn chairs if you want.

    That's good to know.

    When the Lansing's sold it there was a little bit of an uproar on Facebook regarding the supposed plans the Stillman's had for it. I haven't followed it since.

    A bit off topic, but in relation to the steel book edition of this film- I’m not a fan of the steel books due to how tight the spindle is in getting the disc out of the case (my BluRay of Heat
    stopped playing correctly due to the disc getting warped while trying to get it off the spindle). Anyone have the same problem?

    Nope, never. Not a single one has given me that problem.

    Steel book editions are nice looking, but I shy away from them in fear of the disc having problems later. Not a huge deal about Heat though- it was the old mastering of the film, so I bought the latest release which is a vast improvement in video quality over the old one.
