Celluloid Signal Combo put together a cool site that uses geolocation to show local video locations and the idea is that you’ll watch the videos on the spots on the map. Cool!

We created each mobile video to be watched at a specific location in Portland that relates to it. For example, the Pioneer Courthouse Square is matched to the mobile video of George Olsen. If you go there to watch George Olsen and His Orchestra, you will be at the site of the former Hotel Portland where the band was playing when they were discovered and taken to stardom in in New York.
