Library of Congress Film Repository Relocating to Virginia





DAYTON, Ohio -- A film repository at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base that for decades has stored and preserved original copies of some of the nation's most famous movies is heading to a new home.

The Library of Congress Motion Picture Conservation Center, which has the original negatives of such classics as ''The Maltese Falcon'' and ''Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,'' is moving to a new facility being built in Culpeper, Va., about 90 miles southwest of Washington, D.C.

The move, which will begin in the spring and finish by September, is an effort to consolidate federal preservation and storage programs.
