    I wrote to Kino asking if a soundtrack would ever be made available as I quite enjoyed the score very much. Unfortunately, there won't be one, however they did tell me this...

    They must be planning some more big screen exhibitions between now and then. It's well worth seeing on a big screen, but that's good news about the DVD.

    Michael,

    Once the Film Forum engagement ended, not only did the Ziegfeld start to show it, but a Clearview Cinema in Montclair, N.J. - just a few miles from my home - began its engaement as well.

    I've seen it twice, and I'm planning on going to the Ziefeld as well. Great stuff.

    I'm excited - it opens at the Brattle Theater here in Cambridge/Boston for a two week run on Friday. Seeing as the Brattle's only a five-minute walk from my apartment... Yes, I'm excited.

    Yep, it was closed down for a couple weeks a year ago. The sound is now stereo - not great, but not bad, and the seating is much improved: All new, comfortable, cupholders and everything.
    (This is huge to me, personally, since I remember actually having my pants torn by a beat-up seat in the balcony during a Breakfast At Tiffany's/Roman Holiday double feature with a girl I rather liked. Not cool, especially since I chose my apartment in part to be close to the place.)

    Just saw the film at the local "art house" theater.

    OH MAN THIS FILM IS SO BEAUTIFUL!!!

    I cannot wait for the DVD. I almost want the
    Madacy version just to do an A and B comparrision
    of how much better it looks.

    February 18 cannot come soon enough!

    I like KINO!

    They answered one of my emails too!

    PS - I'll keep the Madacy disk, as a memento...
