Do you know about Louise Lawler's project, "A Movie Without the Picture," presented at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica in 1979? I think she didn't screen "The Misfits."
Also, there's the Robert Smithson drawing "Toward the Development of a Cinema Cavern," from 1971.

I know of a number of things that border on this type of work, but still have a physical component.
I have a copy of "This Book is a Movie" from the 70s
Things like "Total Static Takeover" (Scott Arford ) are also of interest.
