Hmmm, a bit weak in 1950’s content…

The new “2001” print that Warner’s is providing to the Seattle Cinerama for this event will be on a “permanent loan” basis according to this article, which also indicates that this sci-fi festival will become an annual event as will the wide-screen festival in the fall.

The new 70mm print of 2001 is on “permanent loan” to the Seattle Cinerama because they paid for the new print to be struck, thanks to theatre owner Paul Allen. Hopefully, then, the print will stay fairly pristine!
