September 14, 1984 Five years before the major 70MM restoration engagement, this quick two week presentation was 35MM despite the ad heralding the Super Panavision 70 photography.

I saw this presentation and despite being in 35MM it was a beautiful print and as it was the first time I was seeing the film I was pretty overwhelmed.

Though I didn’t know it at the time it was probably missing those scenes and moments Lean had cut shortly after the Criterion NY premiere.

In fact it may have been the cut that the New York Times had lamented when the film was re-released in the early 70s at the Rivoli causing me not to go at that time.

Note however this release uses the original ‘62 artwork which neither the '71 or restoration release utilized.

The restoration release artwork was terrible as was My Fair Lady’s when it was restored. Both should have used the original though Lawrence’s ‘71 looked terrific on the large billboard on the back on the Rivoli and could have been used as well for the restoration.
