Current bulk from Ilford comes in cardboard box with only a paper closure on one side - -the box says in eight languages only open in total dark.
Inside is an unsealed black bag.
Don't accept a box with paper closure broken...
Id not store in fridge either.
You can still get Kodak cine...
the load door for cassettes for plastic I.e. non bakite Watsons should close completely without any use of force dont use force
the rotating door can need effort but you do need to make sure the interlock is clear
A pukka dark room is just as good and you never lose the 36 frame to the loading process...
