Classic Cinema Online. A ton of old movies watchable in an embedded player.

Thanks! The site loads very, very slowly for me but Evil Brain from Outer Space certainly made it worth the wait.

Good god, this is a great find. I wish I could favorite it 10 times over.

Jeez, this is incredible! I have been looking for a site with silent films (not very hard, but it's been in the back of my mind) so that I can watch them while I'm in class.

Ah, today's youth.

Only in my general education classes! Naturally I'm bright eyed and bushy tailed while in my major classes.

Fantastic! Thank you!!! Now I am going to try to forget about it so I can get some work done today.

I'm not sure that movies like Slaves in Bondage, She Gods of Shark Reef, Hell Ship Mutiny, and Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla qualify as 'classic' cinema (I suppose they're classically something), but this is indeed an excellent find. Thanks for the post.

The Documentary section, by the way, includes John Ford's two WW II movies, Report from the Aleutians and The Battle of San Pietro, which he filmed in between making two true classics: The Maltese Falcon and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

Sigh. Nice site, but they don't have "The Flying Fleet" with Ramon Navarre.

A GREAT silent movie with actual shots of aerial military exercises over San Diego! Do want, but can't find!

They Call Me Trinity: I'm not sure I feel up to seeing a Terence Hill & Bud Spencer film again. Some experiences are best left in the mist of time.
