Post-interview, Chris did some checking and there were TWO nitrate fires at the venue. Also, he asked around and there are indeed new chemically tinted prints still being made right now, which is incredibly exciting. Finally, the Queen documentary Chris is co-directing was officially announced yesterday, so we can share a few more details. It’s called The Show Must Go On and American viewers can catch it on ABC in April.
