How about instead of a movie production company paying out $500,000,000 for the next movie, why not have all the Hollywood producers or govt hire 100,000 workers at minimum wage to digitize all of these films? This would drastically reduce the unemployment rate and put a lot of down-and-outers to work.

It'd cost way less than one big budget movie and they'd be saving about 120 years of valuable movie history. Hell, they'd suddenly have a million more movies and TV shows to offer on streaming sites.

More offerings, more subscribers, more money and so many unseen movies would be there for us to enjoy.
