Have the Theatrical Cut of Amadeus (1984) released on bluray

The Theatrical Cut of Amadeus has, basically, been extinct since the inferior Director's  Cut was released. Still to this day, there hasn't been a bluray release of the Theatrical Cut, the version fans and critics have loved since 1984. The new generation has been down-grading this masterpiece because of the added scenes and fans cannot enjoy it in all its glory like they did back in the day. These factors have affected the film's legacy and now it has become a forgotten masterpiece. Warner Bros, as well with the director Milos Forman and Orion Pictures, can act to make a difference and release the Theatrical Cut in a new restoration, that will be glorious to watch. Also, with the addition of Dolby Atmos and 4K, this could bring much more life into the picture and offer a greater experience. The PG rating will also attract young audiences into this film and learn the true beauty of cinema, as opposed to the longer, rated R version of the film that mostly patient adults will find enjoyment in.  The Original Theatrical Cut has always been my favorite film, since I first saw it on DVD when I was 11 years old. I have had other people borrow my copy and they too love this movie as much as I do. I watched it with my whole family and we all gazed up at our TV screen in wonder. Unfortunately the Theatrical Cut is very rare to come across these days, being overshadowed by the inferior Director's Cut that has already been transfered to bluray. I don't want to have the original cut become extinct and WE, the fans of the academy award winning masterpiece, can prevent that from happening by insisting on a new restoration of the Theatrical Cut we love and contacting the studio and director. Please sign this petition as this is very personal to me and many others. Just one signature from you can hugely helps us bring this cut back to life. Your signature COUNTS.
