The following Wired story talks about a service that restores films using a huge bank of Apple Power Macs.  It sounds like the results are excellent.  Hopefully, the cost will decrease and some of the old b-movies and bad movies that have suffered will be restored.

Sounds cool, although I also get the impression a very badly damaged film (especially with those that have consistent frame-to-frame damage, or have a lot of cuts) would still be better suited to manual restoration.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
