Help with projector/setting up a movie club

two for one:
I just set up my new projector
and while it is AWESOME, i'm having an issue with running my incomputer tv input through and losing allot of quality. 1) is there a good piece of software for interpolating tv input to make it higher quality
2) i'd like to organize a movie club to take advantage of the new beast and meet people in my area (berkeley for the bay area mefites). I'm thinking a craigslist ad but i wasn't sure how you would start such a thing when you don't know anyone (similar to starting a bookclub or something)

sorry for the misspelling (there's no edit button before post and i'm too lazy to go back). so here's some more info: the computer has an ATI radeon all-in wonder 8500 DV card which has all the good inputs (tv, rca, etc). The software that came with the card is ok, but when you put a 640x480 image on a 10' diagnol screen the quality takes a dump (the projector is good for 1024x768 and HDTV easily). So what i'd like to find is a piece of software which interpolates the frame upwards from the input tv signal size to the maximum screen size. I know there is tv hardware that does the same thing and figure the computer should be able to do the processing easily.
as for the second part, i've been in the area for a year but recently had my good friends move into the city (it's a shlep for them as the bart sucks), so i'd like to meet some pop-culture junkies like myself...and show of the projector of course. I've found really iffy results with craigslist so i wasn't sure if there's a better forum to check out.
