The only way this could be done is to either show
crappy bootlegs or project home-use video transfers
that were not meant to be shown on a large screen.
Either way, you'd be both violating the artists' and
distributors' wishes and presenting a poor-quality
(and illegal) program to the audience, so if 16mm
projection isn't a possibility, a Breer/Whitney/etc.
program really isn't either.
