Hi Barry!
you got a email about film cleaning

As Steven Spielberg says....
Nothing beats old school projection. Digital is just an imitation.

Paul Foster sells FILMGUARD @ £44.99 (plus £6.00 UK postage) in spray bottles containing 32fl.oz. (1 1/2 pint.)
This will clean and lubricate films.

alcohol is ok for cleaning film, but it has drying effect on the film and you will need to lub film after.
