Interesting tidbits on the restoration...
There's also a new hardcover book on the movie due out in October:The restoration work also includes a high dynamic range version. "We worked on that for quite a few weeks," Crisp said, adding that with the expanded range, "Close Encounters still had to look like Close Encounters. The film was so well shot. We did a few HDR tests and I asked his guys to come and look at it. We got to where we would show it to Steven. I went over and set up some OLED monitors. He had recommendations for changes, but ultimately really liked it."
