Classic Cinema Online

Being a fan of old movies I was only too happy to discover Classic Cinema Online, a site dedicated exclusively to screening feature-length classics Free…no registration required.  Simply find a seat, allow the reel to buffer for a few minutes and wait for the show to begin.  Don’t forget the popcorn of course.  On any given day there is a featured selection of around seven films, although the entire database is searchable by title or genre.  And I do believe the site hosts classic “serials” as well.

I really love the aesthetic of this neat little site and hope it never changes.  All too often innovative projects like these start off doing one thing really well, then eventually – often in the pursuit of commercial interest – end up expanding in awkward ways.  My favorite design element are the movie posters, which do wonders for recreating the glamor of the classic cinema experience.
