cineplex black stories

Over 40 movies by Black filmmakers can now be streamed for free at Cineplex Canada

Black movies are now free to stream on Cineplex in Canada, and there are dozens to choose from.

Us, The Color Purple, Remember the Titans, The Pursuit of Happyness, Ray, Moonlight, Get Out, Coach Carter, Selma and Akaleeh and the Bee plus many more are now ready to be viewed online at no cost.

Dubbing the collection "Understanding Black Stories," Cineplex writes: "In a time when many are turning to movies to become informed and empowered, we want to help. This collection of important films was curated to elevate Black stories, artists and filmmakers and spark discussion."

Cineplex announced the arrival of the collection the same day Criterion lifted the paywall on many films they're currently highlighting that focus on Black lives.

Criterion also established "an employee-guided fund with a $25,000 initial contribution and an ongoing $5000 monthly commitment to support organizations fighting racism in America."
