  1. Was there a new restoration done last year? I have to wonder what else could be done since the last one four years ago?

    1. I too noticed that "restoration" remark from the Museum's press release. To my knowledge, I don't think any new work has been done to the film.

      What they're probably referring to are those enhancements made for the 2009 Blu-ray. And this screening would simply be an opportunity to see how they look on the big screen.

  2. I was about to ask the same question about the restoration, but now it's all clear! I certainly can't imagine the film looking any better than the Blu-ray.

    1. I agree Vlad. No need to do more restoration.
