Friday Night At The Movies

As we reported the other day, Washington Capitals majority owner Ted Leonsis is launching a Web company to distribute documentaries online for free, creating a kind of virtual theater for moviemakers who may have difficulty getting their films shown in cinemas.

He's calling his new enterprise SnagFilms and it works sort of like YouTube, but instead of providing user-generated fare it streams documentaries, many of which you have probably heard of.

We hoped to post one of the site's more than 250 videos today but alas, our goof, it is not to we'll point you to their site instead. Also, here's a link to Walt Mossberg's review on the All Things Digital blog.
