If you look under 8mm Distributors and Sellers in this section, A1 Video has a flat Poltergeist for $150.00. I have never purchased anything from this seller, but you could check it out.

I wish I could bid on this but it looks like it's not set up for bidding in America. If I find a way to win this I might consider selling the flat version I have =D

There you go Alexander!

The power of speaking to the masses, on a one to one basis!!

Alexander buys this, sells it to you, then he buys yours Evan. Simples and everyone is Laughing.

I love my flat version Evan, and wouldn't swap it for anything.
Scope is just so unpredictable on 8 for sharpness for my tastes
but if it is yours, here is the solution.

Haha. Good thinking Andrew. However the reason I carefully selected the word MIGHT was because I would first be Interested in running the film and judging the quality =}

And with a trustworthy seller, so you shall, my friend!
i have been the recipient of this goodwill gesture on many occasions and I believe it works above all other methods barring someone who has something to hide! [Smile]

I have had far greater experiences dealing on this forum than the prints I've bought off of eBay. It has almost turned me off of ebay all together. Almost....there are a few listings I can't help but watch carefully. Of course detailed descriptions and pictures always help

Thanks for all comments - I am collecting over 40 years and the
Kempski print of Poltergeist in Scope I have bought new when it comes out - but I heard of the flat version and I want to have a look on it. The scope print is great and I would sell it never...

Well I've only seen PII in scope Alexander of these two, but flat or scope from what I've seen, they are both very good quality prints.As you would expect from Kempski really.

I'm just curious ... why would you want a flat version when it's available in scope?

1. No scope lense?
2. It's the flat version a different "cut" of the film?

Alexander has mentioned above that he already has a Kempski scope copy, so I'd also be curious regarding the motivation to obtain a flat one!

The explanation is simple: as the most collectors I am a little fool - I collect erverything from special titles like Indiana Jones, Poltergeist and so on... Yes, I own the scope version bought new when it came out from Kempski - but what against to say buying also the flat version to see the quality and specially owning both?

Nice collection Alexander, and I can go with that explanation, if you're a collector...then you're a collector!

Simple as that, I'd say!!

Nobody has ever been crucified for owning two penny blacks!
