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.

Updated with new films starting in June 2022.

Expiration dates are noted when known. READ THE NOTES.

1 - 74 are announced to leave at the end of June 2022.

75 - 166 will probably leave at the end of July 2022

167 - 238 will probably leave at the end of August 2022.

239 - 300 will probably leave at the end of September 2022.

301 - 350 will probably…
