As Eliza Doolittle would say, It will be positively loverly
Celebrations are underway with The Capri Theatre at Goodwood screening the newly restored Oscar-winning 1964 film version of My Fair Lady, in style, for the film's 50th anniversary on New Year's Eve.
This new breathtaking restoration is described as looking more "lovelier" than ever. Costing more than 1 million dollars, a whole new digital restoration frame-by-frame from the original 65mm negative with a new 8K scan and a full 4K restoration. Over six months approximately 12 million glitches in the film's images, including dust, scratches, tears and splices were removed by computers.
If you are wondering what that all means, well a regular Blu-ray player displays only 2K of resolution. So My Fair Lady with the latest improved technology, will look and sound very much like what Eliza Doolittle would call "positively loverly".

When Saturday, 31st December, 2016 from 7.00 pm you will be made to feel welcome in the licensed piano bar in The Capri Theatre foyer.

Your ticket includes a glass of bubbles on arrival and at midnight.
