Thanks, Nancy [and moirafinnie].
I lived in West Virginia for most of my life, then moved to South Carolina. Neither have been what you might call a classic movie buff's paradise. In my early 20s, I had to join online film rental websites to be able to see a lot of classics - our local cable company didn't get TCM and AMC was going downhill just about that time. What's more, 75% of the inventory at my local library and video rental outlets seemed to come from the last 25 years or so (of course, they all had the popular classics that are easy to find).
Now I'm living in SC, and classics are much easier to find these days (especially with NetFlix), but it's hard to find others (except online) who enjoy viewing or discussing them. I assume that there aren't enough cinematic bells and whistles to keep most people occupied.
