Free Movie Classics Online

Here's a fun way to practice your listening. Add writing practice to your movie watching experience by writing a review to share with the group. Here's a link to an article on how to write a movie review

Almost a year ago, we started scouring the web for free movies – for films worth your precious time. We started with 75, and now we're above 200. What will you find on the ever-growing list of Free Movies Online

Films by Orson Welles, Francis Ford Coppola, Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, Brian DePalma, Jean-Luc Godard, Andrei Tarkovsky, Fritz Lang, Elia Kazan, Howard Hawks, Ida Lupino, Ken Loach, Akira Kurosawa, Billy Wilder, and Martin Scorsese. 

The list covers many different genres (comedies, film noir, indies, documentaries, short and animated films, even some noteworthy B movies) and spans the entire history of cinema, moving from early silent films to contemporary movies. It also features brilliant performances by major actresses and actors – too many to name right here. 

For copyright reasons, there's generally a heavy emphasis on the classics. If you have time to spare, check out the full collection of Free Movies Online. And if we're missing any good ones, please feel free to send us your tips or add them to the comments section below.

    Thank you for your information. I found interesting films on this site. Then I tried to watch them but I couldn't. I was told that I had to have a valid US mailing address.


  2. Sadamu,

    Open Culture is global supposed to to be just that, OPEN to the world, no US mailing address required. Needing an address for surface mailing sounds wrong too since users download the films online.

    Maybe there is an option for mailing DVDs that would require a domestic mailing address ~ to expensive to be offering to ship free anywhere on the planet. Maybe I got the wrong link.

    I just started a new job so haven't had a chance to check it but will. Always reread site instructions and check for other links.

    What about the rest? Did anyone check the site? You should be answering each one another's question.

    Thank you for your advice.I tried to watch another one and I could see a film. I chose a short film only marked 'Free' and clicked. This time it worked.

    It was a short documentaly film lasted 33 minutes.It was colour film. I think I could umderstand half of their English.

    I'll try to watch a famous movie next time. It's nice for me to know other world by them.

    Thank you again,Vanessa
