Cowboy is 212 929-4200. I WOULD NOT call them unless you know what you want
They have never done this before and I doubt they have any official list now
Critrion 800-890-9494
New Yorker is 212-247-6110

There are other places that will have SOME films but Swank & Criterion have
the vast majority of "hollywood" films. The others ( like Kino) are mostly
foreign & indepedent films.
I would strongly suggest figuring out a general idea of WHAT films you are
looking for
