    I'm new, so sorry if this is old.

    I guess I could go to local store, but:

    I have a bunch of Kodachrome film, negs, color and B&W on 35MM from
    the 50's. Mostly rolled in the can, some cut.

    Any way I can modernize them?

    you can purchase a film scanner...
    to do a good job it's best to get one specifically designed for scanning
    film
    and stay away from those flat-bed scanners that claim they can also scan
    film.

    the film scanners are fairly expensive however...
    so you may find it worthwhile to just pay a lab to scan some of you best
    shots!

    This is a misconception these days; high-end flatbeds scan negatives and
    slides as well or even better than equivalently priced dedicated film
    scanners. The Epson and Canon models produce exceptional work even in the
    $400 range.

    i'm sure you are right...
    maybe i should have specified not to use those scanners in the $100 range
