Weekend Classics: Restoration Roundup

Weekend Classics: Restoration Roundup

Throughout the course of a very busy 2017, a number of restoration projects were undertaken by studios large and small. So many, in fact, that this modest summation only scratches the surface, and there’s actually more where this came from. Presented below are a list of repertory films that have been stacking up on our ongoing wishlist. We’re quite thrilled to present these films again on the big screen.
