The "Black Bird" launches LOC film series.
The Library of Congress inaugurates its new art-deco theater at the library's audiovisual conservation center in Culpeper, Virginia, with showings of The Maltese Falcon on September 4 and 5th. It will be followed by other films from the National Film Registry (those movies deemed culturally, historically, or aesthetically important), such as Shane (September 9), Shadow of a Doubt (October 3), and Out of the Past (October 7). The official press release with the film schedule can be found here.
