Cinema from Hollywood's golden age is enjoying a revival with the emergence of retro video streaming and a burgeoning festival scene belying the old joke that nostalgia ain't what it used to be.More than 25,000 fans from as far afield as Australia and Japan hit Hollywood over the weekend for the TCM Classic Film Festival, run by cable network Turner Classic Movies for a seventh year.LA-based American Cinematheque hosts a three-day festival over the weekend of Laurel and Hardy's work, photochemically and digitally restored from the original 35mm film.Turner, which owns TCM, last week announced a subscription VOD service called FilmStruck with a library of more than 1,000 art house, indie, foreign and cult films available on any device.It's not just a hankering for old movies that is defining nostalgia in the film industry, which has recently scored successes with a series of new films celebrating times gone by.Each film celebrated the romance of 1920s and '30s Hollywood at the latest turning point in cinema history, when theaters across the world were dropping celluloid in favor of new technologies.
