I believe you Peter but I find this odd at best. For instance a number of
the titles that were in the collection and may still be ( I have not
checked) such as THE TIN DRUM, FAUST, THE BLUE ANGEL etc now belong to Kino
in the US. I know there is nothing in our contracts that permits a third
party to have any kind of public screening. It would be VERY awkward if for
instance a college or museum were to borrow a print or video from the
library for a public screening when we had in fact booked the film at
another nearby location. We would never want to cause any trouble but I
always assumed the library for strictly for educational use and not for
public showings.
