Go dark or only talk about the wonders of the 2004 second special edition.
I’ll let you decide which is easier for the forum.
The thirteenth anniversary only happens once.

May 2004 Be With You
Time

To support George Lucas’ desires for his Star Wars vision be remembered (as the 2004 set was made and marketed to do) please refrain from communicating any non-2004 Star Wars talk between the dates of the original movies release, May 25th, and the release of the 2004 DVD set, September 21st.
Websites and forums can go offline for this duration to support the cause. I recommend that the OriginalTrilogy.com deeply consider, so that they do not look like they do not support creator’s rights.

May 2004 Be With You For The Thirteen Time.

4K restoration on Star Wars

Cinefex Issue 151: Page 76
Quote: “As a template for the reconstruction, Knoll referenced a 4K scan of the original release, which contained 25 seconds of the Cuba graphic.”

Page 53
Quote: “On his first days at ILM, Edwards joined Knoll and key staff members to begin deconstructing their source material. “We sat in the cinema to watch the restoration of A New Hope,” said Edwards”

Language variations to the opening crawl and credits would expand your list. German, French, Russian, etc.

Is a feature which can be used to identify variations. The fact that prior to 1997 they appear in some version, are lessened in others and do not appear in another group, shows there could possibly have been different ‘masters’ for prints vs home media releases.

TWC328 has some minutes/sections not in the ROTJ_TP. ROTJ_TP has the British title card. TWC328 might have slightly better quality. Screencaps for both are still online from the first post links.

Theater Performance Preservations
Time

From 2011-01-21 to 2016-08-09, the Theatrical Performance Preservations mentioned in this thread sat on a public server for those that made the connection. In that time, zero complaints were filed, either with the domain hosting service or the search engines which indexed those files. No one wrote to say thank you. This was a test to show that this type of content is culturally irrelevant, a bizarre form of orphaned work or abandonware, considering the time and place this experiment took place. Society, it could be said, agreed in this context. The files would have sat for a longer period of time, but the domain hosting service revised their terms of service. Unlimited plans of the past are now being restricted with different clauses so that people can be rebilled as they migrate to cloud services.

OT Special Editions to have USA Roadshow Summer '16
Time

According to: Shane Mendez ‏@ShaneMendez
Guy just offered to run home and grab his LaserDisc copies
&
A few people complaining that Alamo Drafthouse is screening the 2011 Special Editions of Star Wars. Clearly advertised…

I called 3 of the theaters and asked if they knew and only one was able to say it was being shown digitally (the equipment provided by Alamo). The best response to if “they were showing the movies on film or digital” they responded that “it was going to be shown on the screen”.

It is good they are acknowledging the variations to these films, even if they continue to ignore the later revisions.
The copyright status of all Special Editions releases have been retro-active to the 1997 theatrical release, according to the credits. So most likely they will be showing the BR or whatever propped up version is their now current.

A more expansive list of Force Awakens trailers and TV spots:
https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsLeaks/comments/3swqzo/up_to_date_list_of_all_trailers_tv_spots_and/

There are even more than this. The above list stopped updating around the release of the movie, there were a series of trailers specific to post release which are noteworthy, talking about critical aclaim and audience reaction. Also if you visit official Star Wars language sites in youtube, you get many of the trailers in multiple languages and ones only released in that region.

And then there are languages released through other organization: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAqdhlmG3cU (Hindi)

Note: these are scale down, full res in the folder.

Mentioned in other threads was the possibility of the SWTFA BR credits being longer in length or containing different content making them longer. Tried to confirm this afternoon but was not able to get a firm confirmation. Using the above screen captures printed out a copy (color reversed and cleaned up a bit to make for easier reading) but as this is late in the theatrical run they didn’t turn the lights on right away with the credits as they normally do. So couldn’t read along. Fairly certain the first third, the single name credits are identical. As it was still dark when the scrolling credits began, just paid attention to the general formatting, when it was several rows across and the frequency of those patterns. It seemed that the credits for the 2nd third followed closely. Had a few questions but things moved to fast. Then they turned the lights on and I lost track. But the end few (locations) seemed the same.

So my guess is they are the same, in the confusion forgot to pay attention to the music cues. Probably the film length of the BR is correct but the one mentioned for the theatrical was incorrect.

Requesting MySpleen invite (or other rules-abiding help) for rare antique theatrical AOTC TS by Centropy
Time

Think I used some DVD authoring software (Toast) which permitted me to reverse back into the file streams, by making the .cue into a OS mountable .img.
Ok, Here is a video guide which seems similar to the process:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvKpQHJ2bhg “converting bin/cue files in mac osx with toast”
Which should produce the following:
ctp-ep2A_AVSEQ01.mpg dated Jul 24, 2002 7:44am
ctp-ep2B_AVSEQ01.mpg dated July 24, 2002 7:59am
ctp-ep2C_AVSEQ01.mpg dated July 24, 2002 8:08am
Remember also encountering issues with the audio as it was mpg version 1, as the process of going from bin/cue to img/dvd was being investigated. Maybe it was the above files come out of the unarchiving as .mp1s and I renamed them to .mpg to get software to recognize them.
