Team Negative 1 have expressed several times that they had no plans to release a grindhouse version of ROTJ and since we now have 35mm transfers of both SW and ESB, and I do have a complete 4K scan of an LPP print, I decided to go ahead and do it.

This is a high quality scan of a 1983 35mm LPP print of Return of the Jedi. Special thanks to Poita. This is a Grindouse release, meaning only basic color correction has been done and nothing else, so it’s shaky with lots of grain, dirt and scratches, but for those who enjoy that grindhouse theater experience, it should serve very well.

The colors on the print weren’t faded at all, but the scan did have a very heavy blue cast and was very dark, so I still had to do a lot of hokery-pokery to get the colors to look decent, and each reel, and sometimes each scene, needed completely different settings, so that also means it can hardly be considered
a faithful color reference. Pretty much all scans are like that before correction, so 35mm scans can only be considered a color reference, if they were color-corrected by someone actually looking at the 35mm print being projected traditionally.

This release is 1080p - I tested it and there would be virtually no benefit in releasing this in 4K and everything would take four times as long and have to be 4 times bigger.

The video is NTSC-GOUT-synced, so any NTSC-GOUT-synced audio track or subtitle file should work with it.

Wonderful! Out of interest, are the DD and DTS tracks the same audio in different formats, or is there any difference between them? Are any of the tracks actually from the print itself?

Were there frames missing at reel changes; how did you fill these gaps for GOUT sync?

Most importantly, thank you 😃

So rad to have a completed grindhouse trilogy. Definitely watching these on the big screen at work!

The DTS and DD tracks are the same. Missing frames were filled with black.

Pardon my ignorance but is there a Star Wars '77 35MM Grindhouse? I thought there was only TN1’s ESB Grindhouse 35MM and this new ROTJ one.

TN1’s SW Silver Screen Edition is the Grindhouse equivalent.

I was referring to this post. I’m a bit of a noob to this world so I’m not sure if it would technically qualify as “grindhouse” given all the cleanup… http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/team-negative1-star-wars-1977-35mm-theatrical-version-release-details-and-updates/id/14590

Yeah, the Silverscreen edition isn’t really a Grindhouse release - I would say that rather we now have the whole trilogy as complete 35mm transfers.

It would be nice to have all silver screens but this is MORE than just fine for me. Much thanks to Harmy! (And TN1 for their goods too.)

Just finished downloading this, currently on a 0.587 ratio, the colours are amazing on this preservation, especially at the pit of karkoon, endor and skin tones. Even the image is sharper than the bluray in many scenes, and I’m not talking about the known out-of-focus mid section from the Bluray

Edit: Now watching the scene where the falcon and the other ships enter the Death Star 2 and the picture is so sharp!

Excellent! Thanks Harmy! Yesterday I got your ROTJ DS 2.5, and today this one. It will make an great evening of movie enjoyment…

Wow. What a treat! For example the insides of Jabba’s palace is full of detail I never knew existed. Thanks Harmy and Poita.

I would like to know more about the scanning process. Where did the film come from? Who scanned it?
Was this scanned with a setup similar to what Team Negative 1 uses or something completely different?
It’s all very interesting.
