Why not get the laserdisc that came out last year? It had both the old
Movietone soundtrack and a new one, as well as out-takes, script and other
supplemental materials. The image looked very good. I would much rather
show excellent quality video than crappy 16mm film. For instance, we are
now going to show the new video of Strike that Kino recently issued rather
than our old dupey print. (This is not a plug, Jessica)

So do consider video as an alternative to 16mm film.
