The National Library has 5 photos taken in April 1979 or 1980 by Hunstein in 
the Eaton Auditorium.  As for video, Bruno Monsaingeon made a four-part

"L'Alchimiste I"  has scenes shot at the Eaton Auditorium:

As for National Library making copies of any audio and video documents, 
unfortunately we are bound by the Copyright Law which requires the patron to 
obtain copyright clearance(s) in writting from the rights holder(s) before 
any dubbing can be made.  From experience, acquiring rights, especially for 
video, is virtually impossible (unless you're some mega broadcastor with 
deep pockets...).  But, if you are ever in Ottawa, you may consult any AV 
material which has been copied (we do not play originals for patrons).  It 
is best to call ahead to make arrangements for viewing/listening, especially 
if the material you whish to consult has not yet been copied.  This allow us 
(me) the time to make the dubs.
