Idea: RoboCop - Theatrical Version Preservation - any interest? — Page 2

Ah, I (mistakenly) thought 1.66:1 was the theatrical AR.

Reportedly it’s Verhoeven’s preferred AR for the film. Hence its usage for the Criterion releases.

I definitely prefer the film in 1.66:1.

It’s better to say ‘intended aspect ratio’ than OAR. I also think it works better in 1.85:1, but it would be cool to see something akin to Criterion’s release of On The Waterfront, with both widescreen ratios included.

Oh, weird. I would have assumed it was shot straight open-matte, it’s surprising to me that they’d hard-matte it to 1.66:1.
