This is enormous news; I alluded to it in a Silent Film Festival post, but it well-deserves its own mention.
Abe Gance’s epic film, Napoleon, is to be shown as never before seen in its complete restoration by famed film historian Kevin Brownlow. This includes, so I gather, its entire 5 and a half hour runtime AND the epic battle scenes which require three projectors to run simultaneously.
It is running for four showings only, March 24, 25, 31, April 1, 2012.
Tickets are on sale now, and range from 40 dollars to 120 dollars. Click on jump to purchase tickets and see some scenes with a review from youtube user Spartacus007.
