Welcome To Classic Cinema Online!

Classic Cinema Online is a relatively new website that grew in popularity literally within days of it's having been published in January of this year. It's popularity without even having yet been formally promoted has been a pleasant surprise, there were over 1 million hits in it's first month online, which is pretty good considering that it hadn't yet been entered into any search engines or anything.

I've read many comments from people who are enjoying the site, and I am pleased to know that so many of you out there are enjoying Classic Cinema Online. It's certainly my pleasure to bring you these movies, and I look forward to adding even more to the collection for your enjoyment.

If there are any requests, questions, concerns, or whatever, please don't hesitate to send an email or discuss them here.

My warmest welcome to all of you, and thanks for discovering and enjoying Classic Cinema Online. Glad to have you with us!

I enjoyed watching your documentaries on WWII, but it seems that part 7 "War Comes To America" is in fact part 4 "The Battle of Britain".

Hope you can resolve this mal function,

Hi there!
Could you probably tell me, how many of the films you are showing are really "public domain" and could be used for ducumentations etc. about the silent movie-era. I would like to use some of the stuff for a project.

Regards, Sven

Thanks for your question. The only answer I can give you at this point concerning that is this URL: http://www.copyright.gov/records/

That site can help you research copyright status of a work.

By the way, I'd like to add that all of our movies played on this site are believed to be in the Public Domain. These movies are not on our servers, they are on google's servers, and while some of them are uploaded to Google by us, many of these movies are uploaded by other website owners and are shown in this site in accordance with Google's stringent polices.
