  1. It is a pity that, at least at the Cinerama Dome in L.A., the slatted screen was abandoned in the early 1970's. The standard perforated material that replaced it is utterly inferior, as it allows bright image elements on one side of the screen to bounce onto the other side and fog the picture with light pollution. It is even more of a pity that, when the Dome was rehabbed in the early 2000's, including the installation of 2 additional projection booths and the capability to show 3-strip Cinerama, the engineer in charge AGAIN chose the solid, self-fogging screen material. Every film you see

Saw it upon original release, and previous TV versions seemed to be bad transfers , pan/scan, etc. East Berlin, gloomy overcast, lots of zoom shots, Techniscope. Atmosphere alternately tense and somber, somewhat reminiscent of The Quiller Memorandum.
  3. Hi all, Did anyone watch the recent showing of Hard Days Night and notice missing audio during some of the songs?

I could hear the harmonica faintly leaking over on the sound, but basically it was missing. Just wondering...
