well I for one agree with you.  do you know how much film is in the archives at the Library 
of Congress, the UCLA archives, and others?   hundreds of thousands of titles.  

and film is the ultimate generic medium, standards for it are more than a hundred years 
old.   Besides, it has its own value as a visual medium, that video doesn't have.   But
one can't argue with economics in the mode of presentation at the cinema, I suppose...
