The Matrix, A League of Their Own Are Among This Year’s Additions to the National Film Registry

Every year the Library of Congress picks 25 “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant” films for inclusion in their National Film Registry. It’s a way to highlight the importance of preserving the United States’ film heritage. It’s also pretty much the only time you’ll see a short documentary about 38 streets, businesses, and cities named Augusta on the same list as The Matrix.

10 Movies That Should Be In Theaters All The Time

Every once in a while, popular films are re-released into theaters. Sometimes it’s with improved sound, effects etc. but sometimes it’s just because people love them so much. This past year we saw Disney’s The Lion King back in theaters in 3D and the original Back to the Future. Next year will find Star Wars back in theaters (again) with their 3D version. When movies like these are brought back to the big screen, they almost always prove extremely popular, not to mention profitable. So that begs the question – why do they ever leave?

The movie theater business isn’t an easy one. Most of their money is made through popcorn, candy and soda sales with a percentage of ticket sales going to the studios depending on how long the film is out. Special screenings, depending on who’s running them, have a different cost strategy, but pretty much, if people will keep coming to see it (and buying concessions) it stands to reason they’ll make money. Here are ten films that I think deserve to perpetually show on the big screen. Granted I don’t know everything about what a financial model for something like this would be and I’m not saying they have to show every day but theaters are guaranteed to have at least one butt in their seats for these.
