That was me, and it wasn't hearsay.
Yes, it seems that, according to a ranger, that the "old-timers" have grown attached to that film. (She didn't say that they were part of it's creation though.) I suggested that if that's the case, package it into a DVD and sell it in their fantastic bookstore. Another thought is that they could continue to show it, perhaps at odd times or in another room, and still produce a new video for the rest of us. Many other CW parks have new, exciting orientations. Shiloh needs to keep up with the times.
