Watch These 79 Streaming Movies Before Netflix Takes Them Away Tomorrow

Perhaps you were envisioning a relaxing long weekend at home, curled up watching Chinatown, Dr. Strangelove and Beavis and Butt-head Do America (because of course, best combination). I’m here to shatter your dreams and cast your desires into the dirt: Those and 76 other movies won’t be available to stream on Netflix starting tomorrow.

Because there’s always someone on the Internet keeping track of such things (thanks, Reddit!), there’s a list of some pretty good movies you’ll be bummed not to have at your fingertips, for a total of 79 streaming flicks that are about to disappear.

Of course, some of these titles could be available elsewhere like on Hulu or Amazon Prime, so it’s always worth checking those services as well.

The full list is below, plus 45 new additions noted by The Daily Dot that will be available starting tomorrow. As if you can ever make a bandage for the hole all five Rocky installments will leave.

    i am not going to spend my lunch break checking every movie on this list, but i just checked the african queen and it IS currently on amazon prime instant video with no listed expiration date. i added it to my netflix streaming list and there is no indicator saying when it expires, which is unusual in my experience.
    of course a few weeks ago amazon prime listed most of the classic doctor who as expiring and then it was renewed. netflix does that sometimes also – if the licensing renewal isn’t complete by shortly before the expiration date of the current license, they mark is as about to expire. of course some things do get pulled. i don’t think the look who’s talking sequels and at the top of anyone’s streaming queue.
    but the star trek movies have been renewed multiple times, as far as i can remember.

    Ooo! Star Trek VI!
    I’m really hoping they make Voyage Home available at some point, though.

      i really cannot tell if you are being sarcastic as Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home is on the list of movies that expire tomorrow

  3. theoriginalcatastrophegirl says:

    just for kicks i checked this list on my netflix account after the expiration date and got mixed results

    these titles remain unaffected and can still be streamed:

    10 Questions For The Dalai Lama
    Hotel Rwanda
    Poolhall Junkies
    Rubber
    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
    The African Queen

    these titles are not available but are listed with the option to save them for when they might be available again:

    A Borrowed Life
    After Fall, Winter
    Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter
    Cotton Comes to Harlem
    Death Wish 4
    Palo Alto
    Stuart Saves His Family
    The Running Man

    these titles don’t even appear on the site:
    No Way Home
    Tentacles

    and these titles have multiple versions, and i don’t know which one was supposed to expire
    Point Blank (3 versions, one of each available on disc, streaming or to save for later)
    The Little Prince (2 versions, one disc only, one streaming)
    The Night of the Living Dead (2 versions, one disc only, one streaming)

    all the other titles on the list remain available on dvd
