The George Eastman House in Rochester, New York currently houses one of the country’s largest collection of nitrate films. This year, the museum sponsored “The Nitrate Picture Show” — screenings of rare nitrate films that drew attendees from 20 countries. 

The star attraction was a 1947 print of Casablanca, and the Eastman House’s senior curator of motion pictures Paolo Cherchi Usai introduced the screening by addressing guests for whom it was the first time seeing the film: “Well, this is like getting your first kiss in front of the Taj Mahal.”
