Sorry to post this here, we have a show tonight, and there is some question.

The print we have is labelled (via sticker) 1.33:1, and the cans are labelled the same. The leaders (from negative) are merely marked "flat." Does anyone know authoritatively what the aspect ratio is?

Our first show is in about an hour [Smile]

I will post full details to the FITA when we're not in a hurry.

When I opened it in Los Angeles First Run, we played it 1.85. All my prints were E.K. Showprints and the TAP sheet had it Flat 1.85.

Have a Great show.

Bill is correct. I played 2 EK showprints and a regular release print and all 3 were 1.85

Please make a post in FITA with any further details you wish to note. I am locking this thread, but certainly understand the need to post it here to attract the most attention given your timespan.
