The Matrix 35mm Preservation

 (Edited)

   Poita has been offered The Matrix 35mm print as most of you know by now, but the seller is only holding it for 1 week. It's going for $1000 which is a good chunk of money but with enough people donating we could make it happen and preserve this awesome film.

   I don't see the movie studios ever putting out any other version but the one we see on blu-ray.  Maybe a higher res scan but not the colors we first saw in theaters. So if you love this movie as much as i do and want the theatrical colors and contrast that's not dialed way up, then please help us reach our goal.

As was said by poita, 50 people at $20 each will get it done faster.

If not then what ever you can spare would be helpful.

 

We're now accepting and collecting the donations at this point in time.

 

   Donation goal for the print was met!!

$25 here!

A picture is worth a thousand words. Post 102 is worth more.

I’m late to the party, but I think this is the best song. Enjoy!

No problem! I'm sorry that I can't donate more; my finances are a bit tight at the moment.

Just BTW, a scan of 90mins of 35mm film costs upwards of 10K at a bureau.

Don't give up guys, maybe there's a friend that doesn't know about the project and wouldn't mind tossing some in the hat.

Ask around some web sites

This project is extremely exciting to me and hopefully many others.

Is this the real world or the Matrix?

I'll toss in $20. I've mentioned this to a friend. He might be able to toss in a few bucks.

I'd throw in a $20…

Another buyer wants the print, the owner has only given me until Sunday unfortunately. If it gets close, I can borrow the rest and hope that future donations come in.
