The brand new high-definition restoration of the classic Dam Busters film is being premiered as one of the official opening events for the International Bomber Command Centre in Lincoln on Saturday 14 April. If you can’t get to Lincoln for this showing of the film, it will be screened again on Thursday 17 May, in a simulcast from the Royal Albert Hall, which you can catch at the Kinema in the Woods, Woodhall Spa, the Playhouse, Louth, the Savoy, Boston and other cinemas in our area. Booking here.
For the restoration, STUDIOCANAL went back to the original 1954 camera negative and sound negative. They have produced a 4K DCP, UHD version and a new HD version to the same high technological standards as today’s biggest international film releases.
