I saw a delightful documentary that I'll mention, since it seems that no one else has.

PBS showed "Saving Brinton," a sweet story about a guy - portly, bearded, and very determined - who found himself with a huge collection from a century ago, including a number of silent films, which had belonged to Frank Brinton, an enterprising pioneer of sorts in Iowa - where there is still the oldest continuously operation movie theater. According to the film, most people in the middle of the country saw a projected image for the first time via Brinton's programs.
