    I've been waiting for this to be released on DVD for years. Details from gdstore.net:-

    The Grateful Dead Movie

    This 2 DVD set, with more than 5 hours of footage, contains the original theatrical release of The Grateful Dead Movie plus extensive bonus footage. The second disc includes three additional documentaries, 11 never-before-seen songs (totaling over 95 minutes), the original "Mars Hotel" television spot, demonstration of multi-camera and multi-track audio mixing, and a photo gallery. The picture is remastered from the original negative in High Definition, and the original audio has been fully remastered in Dolby Digital 5.1 channel and 2 channel audio.

    When The Grateful Dead Movie was retired theatrically, most known 35mm prints of the Movie were returned to the Grateful Dead's vault. Unfortunately, many of the prints of the Movie were returned either incomplete, or heavily damaged. With the recent restoration of The Grateful Dead Movie, and the discovery of the original 35mm negative of the Movie from which the DVD was produced, these damaged or incomplete prints of the film have become obsolete. We still have several dozen complete (8 reel) theatrical prints of the Movie in very good condition, which are being properly preserved, but for the few "orphaned" reels (such as those prints of the Movie for which we have only Reel 1,3,4 and 7 of the 8 reels) or damaged reels, we have decided that rather than destroying these prints of what are still very cool visual items, we will distribute these 6" film strips to you!

    So, for every pre-order of The Grateful Dead Movie DVD, you will receive a 6" strip of 35mm film from an actual theatrical print of The Grateful Dead Movie. Perhaps you'll receive a snippet of Gary Gutierrez's stunning animation, or some footage of Jerry shouting out the words to "Morning Dew." It's all random, and it's all good. One thing we can tell you is that these were all shown in theatres at one time, and all once resided in the Grateful Dead's vault. They're our gift to you, as a way to thank you for your continued support.
