The Criterion Channel: Limited Engagements

These are non-Janus films which are currently streaming on the Criterion Channel. They will very likely only be available for three- or six-month engagements. The list is roughly ordered, first by their announced leaving date, and then by my (fairly reasoned) prediction of when they will leave the Channel. Updated with the new films for June 2021.

Expiration dates are noted when known. READ THE NOTES.

1 - 86 have been announced to leave at the end of June 2021.

87 - 197 will probably leave at the end of July 2021.

198 - 310 will probably leave at the end of August 2021.

311 - 369 will probably leave at the end of September 2021.

370 - 419 will…
