Requesting print information for Pink Floyd: The Wall (1982)

If possible, the print stock and reel lengths would be greatly appreciated.

It has been a long time since I handled this one.
I believe it was 5 reels pretty much full.
scope
dolby A
a note, the dialogue was recorded low to force you to play the sound high. Of course by all means crank it up. [thumbsup]

MGM, now handled by the Warner Bros archive.
5 reels
Scope
Dolby A
MGM Culver City lab
Kodak SP stock (One or two LPP prints hay have been struck a few years ago, I have heard reports of 'excellent color' to 'totally pink' from theatres that have played this title in the past several years)..
70mm prints were struck as well in its original release, possibly 35mm mag as well: AFAIK, Warner does not have either of them available.

Warners did have a 70mm print three years ago which was red. There are 35mm LPP Dolby A prints out there too.

Bumping this up to the top because after much delay, we're FINALLY going to run this thing...

...Does anyone have any Rep. info on this title, specific print numbers they know are good, or information on how to specifically request LPP, Stereo A prints when booking (if possible)

If this is violating the rules of the feature info thread, just delete this post and spank me with a raw fish.

I have handled a 35mm print of it with mono sound.

The 70mm print we run regularly is built up to 4 reels, on standard Eastmancolor stock (date-coded 1981) with six-track mag in Format 42. Stunning sound. It's faded oddly too, some sections are quite pink but there's still a fair amount of blue left in most of it too.

I have also heard it suggested that some 35mm four-track mag prints were struck, but that's purely hearsay.

Just ran WB Print #97001. Still Dolby-A, LPP. Generally very good condition, could use a cleaning. Has obviously been plattered at some previous time.
