We subscribed to the Recorded Books version about a year ago. After a few
little glitches, we've been very happy with it. We show the films in an
ongoing Friday night program, advertised in our newsletter, and after that
the dvd goes into general circulation.

The series was kicked off by an article in the local newspaper and we also
had a speaker. Attendance has tapered off somewhat, but we still have a
loyal crowd that shows up regularly.

Any other questions, just ask!
