The government shutdown has affected people in life-threatening ways—the suspension of clinical trials for children suffering from cancer, for example—so the cancellation of a film at the N.C. Museum of Art is merely a minor annoyance. However, it does demonstrate the small ways the federal government intersects with our daily lives.

The Crowd Roars, a 1932 film directed by Howard Hawks and starring James Cagney, was scheduled to screen tomorrow at 8 p.m. However, as the NCMA website explains, the museum couldn't get the film from the Library of Congress Film Archive.
