* As part of ''Music/GodspeedYouBlackEmperor'''s live show, they have visuals projected from actual film. Later in the show, the projectionist will literally burn the film (with a lighter) while it's still being shown, producing this effect.

* The 1971 cult film classic ''{{Two Lane Blacktop}}'' uses this trope to bring the movie to a disjointed end. The audience is placed in the back seat of a suped-up 55 Chevy in a drag race at a track, looking forward over the shoulder of the driver (James Taylor). Just before the car accelerates down the track the sound drops out and as the car picks up speed the film slows until it starts to melt through and then the screen goes to black. The audience never sees the end of the last race.
