Freebie Theatre

In the wake of the Tim Horton's suicide immolation on Sunday, I thought I'd make a funny video because I am, well, pathetic. Where to look? The Internet Archive. It has some seriously cool stuff and some of it is issued under Creative Commons.
Here's an example of how you could have a "free" night at the movies:
  • Experiments in the Revival of Organisms (1940) - This disturbing film records the successful experiments in the resuscitation of life to dead animals (dogs), as conducted by Dr. S.S. Bryukhonenko at the Institute of Experimental Physiology and Therapy, Voronezh, U.S.S.R. Director: D.I. Yashin. Camera: E.V. Kashina. Narrator: Professor Walter B. Cannon. Introduced by Professor J.B.S. Haldane.
  • Duck and Cover (1951) - Selected for the 2004 National Film Registry of "culturally, historically and aesthetically significant" motion pictures. Famous Civil Defense film for children in which Bert the Turtle shows what to do in case of atomic attack.
  • Night of the Living Dead (1968) - In this classic yet still creepy horror film, strangers hold up in a rural Pennsylvania farmhouse and battle constant attacks from dead locals who have been brought back to life by mysterious radiation. Note: This item contains a user-contributed srt subtitle file. To use this file you must download an srt compatible player and point it at the correct video and srt files (google for srt subtitles). We include this file for advanced users who may wish to use it, however the Archive does not support any player that displays subtitles stored external to the video they are intended to be used with, nor can we vouch for the quality or completeness of the subtitling effort. (Man! I paid $5 for a DVD and here it is for free).
