Rats are part of living in NYC, no? I guess you wouldn't want to get bitten, so having one in a dark theater is a little unnverving, but I'm sort of unfazed even if I see one in a restauarant.
I mean, raccoons, skunks, possums, deers and coyotes were very much a part of living in my hometown, and I generally wasn't fazed by them either, but it's a bit different when you're both inside a room together.

Especially when it's a dark room in which you're supposed to remain quite static.

I wonder what implications this will have for the remaining Buster Keaton restorations since there was all the awkwardness with the competing restorations, some released by Kino and the others by Cohen.

I assume nothing. All that is happening is Kino is assuming the physical distribution of Cohen's discs (all the work producing extras, encoding, etc, is still done by Cohen) which was previously handled by Sony and Entertainment One.

So Kino will continue to handle physical distribution for competing editions of Lobster and Cohen restorations of the Keaton films?

I would assume so. Arent the Kino Keaton releases OOP?

Melbourne cinema, The Astor, has long had a resident cat. Makes we wonder if this wasn’t part of the reason in the beginning.

Isn't this why everyone loves Bodega Cats even though they're a health issue? Cats > rats

Not that I'm aware of. The old Kino Keatons are out of print but they only started releasing the Lobster restorations with the Short Films collection in 2016 which appears to be still in print. They also released double features of The General / Three Ages and Steamboat Bill Jr. / College both in 2017 and most recently Our Hospitality a little less than one year ago. These (unlike the older Kino blus of Keaton) are all based on the Lobster restorations which are a bit contentiously running simultaneously with and independently of the Cohen restorations.

That's not really a thing in Australia, nor is the name (which I had to look up!). Other than The Astor, I've pretty sure I've only ever seen cats in second-hand bookstores.

And I can tell you when I first came across that cat at the Astor (decided to curl up on my feet), I did jump!

The Raccoon Cafe will definitely be on the itinerary if I ever get to Seoul.

Thanks for sharing that! Looking forward to the next volume. As far as my question, it does show they will continue to release the Cohen restorations but I wonder if they will release any future Lobster restorations as well.
