La Cinematheque FrancaisPink Floyd Live At Pompeii, the band's much-loved movie which had them performing a live set in the deserted Italian ruins. Later, footage from Abbey Road was added, giving an insight into the band during those days. For those who've yet to read it, our indepth interview with director Adrian Maben is a fascinating look at the whole Pompeii project.

Adrian has been back in touch with us this week. He told us that the Pompeii footage "has been fully restored and remastered from the original negative" and is now in a high definition, 2K format. The sound has also been improved. Full of enthusiasm for the transfer, he noted that the colour is wonderful, and the depth of the picture was remarkable - as if it was a modern day recording.

This new footage is getting its first public airing this Friday, May 3rd, at 7:30pm at La Cinémathèque française, which is on Rue de Bercy in Paris. The film will be presented by Adrian along with Belgian cinematographer Willy Kurant, who also worked on Pompeii. Tickets for this very special event are now available directly through the website.

UPDATE, May 2nd: Adrian has just informed us that there will now be a second screening at the Cinémathèque on May 25th at 5pm. Tickets will be available as above for the additional screening.
