Some movies disappearing from Netflix tonight

By Marcina Zaccaria,

Out with the old, in with the new is often repeated at this time of year. For movie fans, this might be particularly true. As of Jan. 1, Netflix is removing titles from their catalog.

Netflix features streaming television sows and movies. More than 80 movies and a handful of TV shows will no longer be available. A spokesperson told CNN that the company adds and deletes titles due to licensing contracts.

Comedies and dramas are both on the chopping block. Some favorite movies that won’t be available in the New Year include Titanic, Top Gun, Braveheart, Flashdance, and Do the Right Thing.

According to Time Magazine, TV shows that will no longer be available include Saturday Night Live The 2000s and Dark Shadows. New titles that will become available in 2014 include The Talented Mr. Ripley, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, and seasons five through eight of Dexter.

New Netflix plans, including additional streaming options, will also be available in the New Year.
