Post-Script: There's a whole 'nother art genre at work here, that being the Basement Films show poster, produced zine-style upon the glass face of a copy machine. I recall, well nigh upon 15 years ago, when I accompanied Keif Henley, the master of Xerox machine zine art, to a local Kinko's store, where I observed him produce the poster for my workshop. They've produced many more such posters since then, including this compilation postcard flier illustrating just some examples:

Just one row of shelves in their vast subterranean, nuclear-proof film archive:

Mr. Keif Henley himself:

More filmstrip funkiness:

The aura of grungy film goodness envelopes all:
