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.

Expiration dates are noted when known. READ THE NOTES.

1 - 58 have been announced to leave at the end of October 2021.

59 - 149 will probably leave at the end of November 2021.

150 - 290 will probably leave at the end of December 2021.

291 - 345 will probably leave at the end of January 2022.

346 - 410 will…
