    Is the current Criterion version identical in every way to the first pressing with the exception of the restoration demo?

    And being coded for Region 1, yes. Completely identical.

    One other question. Are the subtitles removeable on the current edition?

    Supposedly not. It was at Toho's request that the subtitles be burned into the video. I can't verify this, I have the original edition.

    Can anyone verify whether or not the English subtitles are optional on the current release?
    Thanks!

    The subs are indeed removable on the current release.
