An Anonymous Patron writes "Theater of Documentary Intrigue, The National Archives has solved a longtime quandary: How can it showcase some of the more than 300,000 reels of motion picture film and 200,000 video- and audiotapes in its possession? The solution is to be unveiled this week in the form of a new 290-seat theater at the Archives building at 700 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. Officials hope the William G. McGowan Theater will become a national center for documentary film, showcasing rare archival footage as well as frequent documentary features and hosting panel discussions, all free."
