35mm Print of Eyes Wide Shut on Ebay!!
Time

Update on Eyes Wide Shut 35mm Print-

The Film has been scanned and is being sent to me and an early collaborator soon. Unfortunately, the scan turned out to be 1.85:1, not 1.33:1. Although, I looked at a preview of the scan and the colors, grain and all look truly beautiful. This project was a bit more expensive than I expected, though.

The total costs of obtaining the reels, scanning, shipping, drives etc. was around $962.

So far, I have around 9-10 interested donators who have given around $30 each. If anyone is interested in seeing this 35mm scan and funding this project, private message me.

So far, I have around $230. Let’s reach the goal of $730. Private message me if interested. This scan is definitely worth seeing!

Eyes Wide Shut 35mm. Who is interested?
Time

I currently obtained a 35mm print of Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide shut, the print is located in Italy, I’m in the states. The print was $203. I could have it shipped to me, or wherever people know a good place to get it scanned. If anyone is interested in funding this project to get this scanned and released, please let me know. It would be awesome to see this feature in HD (or even 4K?) in 4:3 aspect ratio with it’s true colors, whether it be ‘grindhouse’ or a cleaned up version.

Private message me if you want to contribute money towards this project!

Great to hear!

As far as the print, I’m waiting to get pictures of the scans as the seller only has pictures of the cans and reels. I need to see if it’s in 4:3 and doesn’t have faded colors. As far as bidding, it’s at around $120 right now, and two other people are bidding and I have been outbid.

Once I get the pictures I’ll let you know if I want to go forward. Anyone who has interest in this, funding would be greatly appreciated!

There is a 35mm full print of Eyes Wide Shut up on Ebay currently. It’s up for bid with just 3 days remaining, at around $100 as of right now, it’s from Italy.

I know there’s currently a project for a 35mm scan of The Shining, so this would be cool to explore as well and see Eyes Wide Shut in its open matte beauty.

I don’t know any other details on it, but if someone wants to check it out, it’s up there now!
