This has been a great discussion but I must confess I'm getting confused.
A few years ago I wanted to run a 'movie night' at my library. We'd show
a feature film, eat popcorn, then have a small discussion after. I was
told I needed to get PPR before I did this. The viewing would have been
free, we would show a video owned by my library, and there would be NO
commercial gain to the institution - merely some use statistics for the
bean counters.

Am I wrong to assume I need PPR for this sort of purpose?
