Apocalypse Now Theatrical... correct running time?

According to IMDB, the running time of the theatrical cut is 2hr33mn. I've also done a Google search and looked at DVD/Blu Ray cover art & some say 2hr33mn & others 2hr27mn. The version I have is 2hr27mn from a DVD I ripped years ago but the disc became unplayable on all of my players/computers so I tossed it. As far as I know, there are only two versions of this film (Theatrical / Redux). Can you guys check your DVD/Blu Rays for the length? Thanks!

OK good. I guess all info stating 2:33 run time is incorrect. Thanks!

My copy is three hours and 20 minutes, but I taped it at the slow speed, so it takes longer.

Is that a joke?
You have 'Redux' (Extended Director's Cut version).

The discrepancy on the run times of the theatrical cut may come down to whether you're watching the version with or without closing credits. There was a limited run without credits (which were printed in a program moviegoers received), then credits with the bombing of the compound added to later releases.

A wonderful film with some great acting from 14 year old Samuel L. Jackson.

Could've sworn it was Delroy Lindo.
