That would be due to copyright laws. Super old moves, pre 1978, copyrights lasted for 28 years and had to be renewed. So when you see a current movie with a character watching something super old, it’s likely a movie with an expired copyright.

This is so they don’t have to get rights and pay to show the movie in their film.

Post 1978, copyright lasts from the date the film was created until 70 years after the creator passed away.
