As for the print itself… Holy Jeebus! I can’t imagine it looked any better opening day of any of the 70mm re-releases… The bigger news to me though is just the knowledge that this exists in the first place and therefore it IS possible should that occasion ever happen.
That’s my take away as well. It’s wonderful that an original version was seen and is in excellent condition. Also nice to think there may be more viewings. Particularly since there have been a few in other theaters lately. It’s either a big coincidence or someone is testing the water to gauge non-nerd-board interest in the original film.
Whatever the reason, we now have a well-documented case of there being a prime candidate for a proper home release.
