At Virginia Underground, we love people who share our passion for historical preservation. That is why we are giving a shout out to The Internet Archive, a non-profit that houses thousands of films in the public domain. Why? In order to make it easier for all of us to view these wonderful pieces of history. Through their efforts, researchers, students, the disabled, and everyday film aficionados can watch classic films from the comfort of their own homes. Gone are the days of calling every video rental store within a one hundred mile radius just to get a copy of Le Voyage Dans La Lune. In addition to the films  preserved by The Internet Archive, you can also find books, websites, live music, and all manner of ephemera. The work done by the IA is truly wonderful. We encourage all of you to check out the site and let us know what you think.
