Catch-Up On Your Classic Films With THE FILM DETECTIVE

At the moment most people are either in some sort of lockdown or self-isolating. The days are long, so that makes it the ideal time to finally catch-up on those movies which you never got around to watching. A great way to do this is through The Film Detective. It’s a brilliant site, laded with a wonderful selection of classic movies. 

Launched in 2014, The Film Detective distributes restored, films, television and documentaries. It has a library of over 3,000 hours of film on DVD and Blu-ray from places like Turner Classic Movies, NBC, EPIX, Pluto TV, Amazon, MeTV, PBS and more. More importantly at the minute, The Film Detective has an movie app (on iOS, Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV) where you can watch over 1,000 movies online for free (yes, Free!). The channel is also available on Sling, STIRR, and DistroTV

At the minute, we all need a laugh, so it’s good that April is dedicated to the Golden age of Comedy. They’ll be celebrating Charlie Chaplin’s 94th birthday on April 16 and putting the focus on the legendary Roger Corman; alongside religious titles from The Cathedral Films Collection and The Loyola Films Collection for Easter.
