‘Casablanca,’ ‘Citizen Kane’ and Hundreds of Classic Films Added to Streaming Service FilmStruck

While streaming services like Netflix offer tons of movie options, some classic films have not been made available due to complex rights issues. But one streaming service is about to add a bunch of iconic selections to its archives.

FilmStruck is a streaming service that focuses on foreign, indie and classic films. You may not have heard of it yet because of its limited selection, but they just received a new deal to make it a whole lot bigger. FilmStruck has reached an agreement with Warner Brothers to add hundreds of new movies to the streaming service.

Some of the films that FilmStruck will be adding including Casablanca, Citizen Kane, Rebel Without a Cause, Singin’ in the Rain and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, among many, many more.

Warner Bros. recently shut down their own streaming service, called Warner Archive. So this new agreement will allow some of their classic films to still be seen online. They also noted that it didn’t make sense for Warner Archive and FilmStruck to target the same audience, so they’ve decided to just combine them.

Subscribers to the Warner Archive will have their memberships switched to FilmStruck in the next few weeks, so they’ll continue receiving the benefits of their service.

So the good news for you is you won’t have to be confused when people reference “Rosebud” anymore!
