Are they keeping their facilities? Steve Polta says "Does not look like
they will be providing access to optical printers, Steenbecks, Bolexes...",
but is this true? I haven't lived in SF for a while, but FAF did have one
of the only optical printers I knew of that allowed rotation of the gate on
the z-axis, a feature that I vaguely imagined being able to take advantage
of again someday. It would be sad to know for sure that it isn't there any
more!
