The 35mm film strips have stereo sound so I don’t think they’re an 80’s print.

Yep. All the cells on ebay seem to be like that.

The soundtrack is also on a blue strip, and I don’t think that was a thing before the late '90s-2000s. The closeup of Sarah Conner in the fourth image in that listing matches the description kaosjm gave me after seeing an original print. I want to believe we’ll get an original print scanned eventually.

Army of Darkness: The Medieval Deadit | The Terminator - Color Regrade | The Wrong Trousers - Audio Preservation
SONIC RACES THROUGH THE GREEN FIELDS.
THE SUN RACES THROUGH A BLUE SKY FILLED WITH WHITE CLOUDS.
THE WAYS OF HIS HEART ARE MUCH LIKE THE SUN. SONIC RUNS AND RESTS; THE SUN RISES AND SETS.
DON’T GIVE UP ON THE SUN. DON’T MAKE THE SUN LAUGH AT YOU.

Curiously the seller on ebay doesn’t show any sprocket holes of the Terminator strips which would almost certainly show the digital audio and categorically date it later than the 80’s.
The dolby S.R track is possibly 5.1 but looks like stereo to the naked eye, It would have to be laced up into a projector to know for sure. I miss my days as a projectonist!
I would love to get my hands on an original print from 1984, I don’t know how many were ever made back then and very few if any would have made their way over here to the u.k.
