Not sure if they've been mentioned yet, and not a single text, but I think Scott MacDonald's series would prove a useful introduction:
Art in Cinema: Documents Towards the History of the Film Society-
Canyon Cinema: The Life and Times of an Independent Film Distributor-
Cinema 16: Documents Towards the History of the Film Society-
