During the digital restoration of the 1976 classic, the original 35mm negative was scanned at 4K resolution. A Barco projector will make it possible to show the Columbia Pictures release in 4K quality.

The film, relating the story of a disturbed Vietnam vet (Robert De Niro) looking to clean New York of sleaze, won Cannes’ Palme d’Or.
