Turner to christen Kodak vaults

Turner Entertainment has found a new home for over 12,000 cans of irreplaceable original camera color negative, including such cinematic classics as “Gigi” and the original 65mm print of “Raintree County.”

The film will be stored in Kodak subsidiary FPC’s new PRO-TEK film preservation vaults.

Turner is the first entertainment company to store film in the new vaults, which were recently opened in the new Kodak Motion Picture Service and Distribution center in Hollywood.

While the Turner films are protected by duplicate copies, those copies are a generation away from the original. Interpositives are kept in a cold storage facility in Kansas City and internegatives will be maintained in a separate cool storage facility near Culver City.
