A new piece in the Journal of Colonial Williamsburg on the restoration of their signature film The Story of a Patriot.

The restored Patriot will be on screen, in 70mm, at the Colonial Williamsburg Visitors Center beginning shortly after July 4.

There will be a DVD release late this year.

I've never been to Virginia, but this just might be worth a trip!

And a DVD release is coming?!?!
*giggling giddily* Yayyy!!!

I don't think we could ever thank you enough for your tireless efforts in film restoration, Mr. Harris. Honestly, you're deserving of an honorary Oscar and your own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The DVD will be a definate purchase for me, even if I cannot make it to the real thing (the theater).

If I'm in the Williamsburg area, though, I'll be sure to catch a showing at the theater.
