Very cool resources !

Film/Theatre related:

John Wyver, CEO of Illuminations Media in the UK (they made the filmed versions of Hamlet and Macbeth that aired on PBS last year) has created an online guide to Mosfilm's Youtube Channel. Mosfilm dates back to the early 1920s and this youtube channel includes their full, feature length films. Many with English subtitles. The problem is that the channel itself is in Cyrillic. You can read John's discussions in the form of a three-part guide to what you can find there.
