Thanks for the feature "Next Ten Days in L.A.," which is always a must-read every week.

And every week, I scan the list, hoping in vain to see a mention of THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER. I used to be able to count on the New Beverly to show it every year, enabling me to introduce it, on the big screen, to friends who had never seen it. Alas, ever since Mr. Tarantino took over the theater, this is no longer the case.

I wonder what preparation the theater has taken to secure its print of STAR TREK - THE MOTION PICTURE on June 9. When the American Cinematheque screened it at the Egyptian Theater last year, the studio provided a shockingly degraded, gone-to-red print.

The New Beverly tends to be pretty unpredictable about print quality, especially regarding color. The films they screen range from excellent modern prints (like the one I saw of A Private's Affair last week), to splicy but colorfast IB Tech prints, to prints faded from anywhere to mildly brown to nearly colorless.

Sounds as if, even if I tried to warn them about the Egyptian print, they'd be indifferent. You think?

At the Pacino/Schatzberg double feature tonight, they mentioned the bad ST:TNP print that screened at Cinematheque and claimed that this Friday/Saturday's print would be different and much better. (I suspect that the blue screen shots in The Black Hole will still be remarkably grainy, though).

Thanks for the heads up!
