I'll post my views in the thread for the film, but this run is something of a marvel. They seem to be underplaying (or not even mentioning) that there's an entire added aria that no one seemed to know about and hasn't been seen anywhere else. Hoping there's an upcoming Blu with this (and the added curtain call ending) included.

EDIT: Full review: Film's thread

There is an upcoming blu ray based on this restoration.

At least I have the Criterion for its special features, but glad to see it's getting the right treatment. Does StudioCanal have the rights to release a US Blu as well?

Presumably, since the Criterion is out of print since it's SC.

The new Repertory Calendar. Some highlights are two weeks of Gabriel Figueroa, The Apu Trilogy resto and the 25th anniversary of Goodfellas (4k resto).

Some rarities in the Figueroa series, at least. Still surprised we have a dedicated thread for the Hipster Shoebox but not for MoMA (Japanese talkies! Technicolor!) or Lincoln Center (Titanus!).

The fall repertory calendar. Lots of De Sica, Brando and 3D. Plus, the restoration of Rocco and His Brothers.

Lots of DCP which is a shame, especially considering the blu ray quality of the the Hitchcocks.

The winter repertory calendar. As Drucker posted, Chimes at Midnight newer 4k screening, the new Spartacus 4k restoration, and Coen Brothers.

Very exciting about CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT, I'm hoping that Criterion will follow with their Blu-Ray.

Also hopefully the 4k restoration of Johnny Guitar is an improvement over the Olive, and that gets an MOC release, perhaps?!

Yep. I saw all of the pre-LLEWYN Coens on 35mm

If the DCP's are of the quality of the 4K scan restoration of "Spartacus," though, I won't be complaining. It was my first time seeing "Spartacus" ever, and those reds and 'cast of thousands' vistas of armies assembling and going at it? My jaw got acquainted with the sticky floor below quite often, and that's just from getting hypnotized looking at Kirk's chin. :-)

Yep, saw Spartacus earlier in the week and thought the same, it was pretty amazing to look at.

Someone needs to invent a Star Trek transporter so I can go to places like this.

Interesting Film Forum calendar -- they continue to repackage the same old Pre-Code series. I'm looking forward to RAN.

A Touch of Zen looks pretty tempting for a quick NYC trip.
