Next Tuesday in London, A nos amours are showing a 35mm restoration print of Fellini Satyricon, at the Curzon Mayfair at 6.15pm.

Further down on their website, they're looking for assistance from anyone fluent in French for assistance in a potential future screening of Out 1 (helping to cue up a subtitle set with an unsubtitled 16mm print).

Only in Finland, but it's out of print, and anyway don't pay any money for that release: it has no subtitles in any language, and features very probably the worst excuse of a transfer you're ever likely to encounter - it was done from a horribly filtered TV broadcast copy, and on top of that transfered incorrectly to DVD, resulting in an amazing amount of ghosting - in a word, it's entirely unwatchable. Let's rather hope that this "pristine restoration" (which to my understanding is actually just a new properly copied digibeta of the good quality TV broadcast master) will finally end up on home video by one way or another.

I asked Malavida, who name-checked it as "one of the masterpieces of the early 1970's" in their releases of his lesser films, if they had any ambitions to release it, but never got a reply

New York Times on Eight Deadly Shots, screening next week at MoMA's To Save And Project festival. Rest of the program doesn't look that bad either!

On Sunday, as part of their "Sunday Night at the Oscars" season, the Prince Charles in London will be showing both Wings and All Quiet on the Western Front, both from 35mm prints according to the website. The trouble is, they are showing them at the same time as each other (8.30 and 8.40pm respectively)!

#-o Yeah, there's no way there'd be any overlap in the potential audiences of those two films.

Monday's press release: "Owing to the fact that both of these films only did half the business we had expected, we have concluded that there is no audience for old movies any more."

I didn't realize this, but apparently nitrate prints can still be projected in a handful of theaters in the world, and the Dryden Theatre is one of them.

I've never seen a nitrate print projected before, and probably can't make these screenings, but I imagine it's a rare opportunity to see these films this way, maybe for the only time in a lifetime. Both color and black & white films are being shown. Schedule posted here.

NFT1 at the BFI Southbank in London is the only cinema in the UK licensed to show nitrate prints. They did for a while have a regular "nitrate slot" in their programme but haven't done so for a few years now.

I can't believe this hasn't been mentioned yet (or has it?): there is a retrospective of Hasse Ekman's films starting next week at MoMA. Girl with Hyacinths is indeed (in Ingmar Bergman's words) an absolute masterpiece, and The Banquet is better than anything Bergman ever did. NY people, I envy you - don't miss out on this!

Thanks. I, for one, am taking your warning to heart.

Frank Oz restores dark original ending of 'Little Shop of Horrors'. If I remember well, the first Little Shop of Horrors released by WB had the dark ending as one of the extras but Oz didn't approve that released, so that release was either recalled or simply put out of production and the film got re-released on DVD without that extra.

Good to know cause I haven't upgraded thinking that it was just a better transfer with the same extras from the DVD re-release.

Looking forward to this weekend's screenings of Preston Sturges' "Sullivan's Travels" at Portland's Hollywood Theater. The director's son, Preston Sturges Jr. will be in attendance and participate in a Q and A after the film.
