As previously mentioned in A/C, the Music Box Theatre's 70mm Festival kicks off tonight with some rare, high-quality films including 2001: A Space Odyssey, Vertigo, and West Side Story, to name a few. One 70mm print, for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, has had an interesting wrinkle, however.

The only 70mm print of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in left in circulation hasn't aged well at all (it's a tad pink) and, rather than show a Blu-Ray version at the fest, the Music Box has decided to show the pinkish print, at a reduced price ($3/ticket, with credits to those who bought in advance). Other festival tickets are $9.25/film or $70 for a festival pass.
