The is something along those lines.
The Indus 4601 SL will scan a whole microfilm at once if you set it up
to do it. We have one of these machines here and it is nice but I doubt
anyone would offer this service remotely.
One way would be to digitize the whole film and then upload to drobox or
box and then you could look at the files there but I am not sure any
library would offer to do that for a whole film.
Here is some info on the scanner:
