MOSTLY LOST 2: SILENT FILM ARCHAEOLOGY

  13.06.13 11:23am

Culpeper, Virginia, is a rather unique community about 70 miles southwest of Washington, DC. Chock full of American history (General George Armstrong Custer had his horse shot out from under him during the Civil War), a vast collection of architectural styles, cool dark night skies amid rolling hills, and home to the likes of Scarlett O’Hara, Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, and many other film and television stars. The latter are all ensconced  at the Library of Congress National Audio Visual Conservation Center, a large American archive of film, digital media, and recorded sound, all housed in a former Federal Reserve bunker now expanded into a 420,000 square foot facility that serves as a preservation laboratory, underground storage vault, and cataloging center, as well as a lovely 200-seat theatre with regular programs showcasing it collections, with the screenings, for the most part, open to the public. The locals love it. Why not?
