Does Anyone know if there are any surviving theater film reels of star wars 4-6 that still exist out there? I don't really know how theaters handle old film reels but if any should have been preserved it should be classic theater versions of star wars 4-6. I imagine collectors and hardcore fans sometimes get their hands on old film reels from theatrical releases.
Has anyone ever got their hands on original theatrical 4-6 star wars film reels? If someone out there does have them they should do what they can to transfer it to DVD or post safe easy access to downloading it online putting to rest the debate of theatrical vs. re released versions. I had VHS versions from 1997 (which are the closest things I had to unaltered) and compared it to the DVD versions my friend got and there are noticeable changes in the DVD edit versions. Like people say Star Wars 4-6 went from a 5 star movie (original theatrical version) to a 4 star movie (1997 VHS) to a 3 star movie (current DVD edit)
