I have a 16mm print of Citizen Kane that I would like to get professionally cleaned up. I would love to get a duplicate print made as well. Does anyone have any recommendations for good labs that specialize in this type of preservation? I've found some places through the usual searches, but I would love some first-hand experiences you have had. This is a treasure to me and need someone to care for it. Thanks in advance!

Check out these web sites of film collectors:
16mm film Talk this post about making copies

film cleaning supplies Larry runs the Film Talk site.

Film Center then go to the forum at the top of the page.

or ask forum member Robert Houllahan. He works at a lab.

You have a 16mm print of Citizen Kane? Nice! However, I am not sure if a lab would be able to make a duplicate copy because of copyright reasons. Of course you could always check just in case.

Ditto on the copyright issue.
Also since revesal print stock has been discontinued a dupe neg would have to be made and a print struck from that.

Yeah I don't think i'll get a dupe made anyways. I'll definitely be getting the print cleaned though.
