through Sept 16th

I was a bit surprised to see it is not being shown on film but "Digital ‘Scope"

"digitally restored from the original negatives to create this stunning new 2k DCP."

There will be a blu-ray DVD in November

Jeffrey Anderson writes:

"According to a press release, the original negative was newly scanned at 4K, and from there all the restoration work was completed. The color was corrected, scratches and dirt were removed, and rips and tears were mended. In addition, some mismatched dissolves were also corrected. Apparently there was even a malfunctioning camera that resulted in a few unwanted effects that have all been corrected.

Now, thanks to the digital transfer, the film can be shown in is proper aspect ratio of 2.55:1 instead of being cropped for 2.35:1.

Finally, the real screenwriting credits are restored, including the formerly blacklisted Michael Wilson and Carl Foreman."
