Stream old movies at websites such as Hulu.com, Crackle.com and Popcornflix.com. These streaming sites offer older movies in a variety of genres, including drama, comedy, horror and cult films.
While Hulu is known for streaming TV programming, the site also offers a large selection of classic movies. The site’s Classics section contains everything from the intellectual sex comedies of Woody Allen to the westerns of John Wayne. Hulu’s partnership with the Criterion Collection also gives the site a huge selection of European arthouse classics, including “8 ½,” “The 400 Blows” and “The Bicycle Thief.” Some classic films are available to watch for free, but others require a Hulu membership.
Crackle is another streaming service with a selection of old movies. The site offers a wide range of older films, from critically acclaimed dramas such as “Taxi Driver” and “Easy Rider” to 1990s favorites such as “Rudy” and “So I Married an Axe Murderer.” Crackle also offers offbeat cult films such as “Cheech and Chong,” “Heavy Metal” and “Repo Man.” All movies on the site are free to watch, but they do feature limited commercial interruptions.
Popcornflix also offers many different old movies, from westerns such as “The Deadly Companions” to cult films from B-movie horror studio Troma, including “Class of Nuke ‘Em High” and “The Toxic Avenger.” Like Crackle, the site shows brief commercial breaks during movies.
