With the announcement of the 2005 selections for the National Film Registry, the number of films with photobooth or photostrip appearances in them that have been deemed by the Library of Congress to have “cultural, historical or aesthetic significance” has risen to two out of a total of 425 on the list. 

David Holzman’s Diary (1968) was added in the registry’s third year, 1991, and this year, Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982) was added. 

The National Film Registry was created in 1989, and each year, 25 films are added to the list. “For each title named to the Registry, the Library of Congress works to ensure that the film is preserved for all time, either through the Library’s massive motion picture preservation program at Dayton, Ohio, or through collaborative ventures with other archives, motion pictures studios, and independent film makers.”
