 16mm & 35mm Films:

Though TV and home video sure make watching classic movies very convenient, there's still no beating seeing an actual film projection on the big screen.  There are a number of theatres throughout the United States and the world which still show classics on the big screen, but for those of you who like to rent or buy them and project them yourselves, this page lists a few resources that can help.

The distributors below can also help you obtain a public performance license if you plan to show the film outside of a private home environment or to someone other than family or social acquaintances.  For more information on when this special public performance permission is necessary, visit the Images, Clips and Public Performance Licensing page.
