Free Streaming Movies Coming to Kanopy in August 2019

Kanopy is one of the best streaming deals for cord-cutters, with movies from A24, Bleecker Street and the Criterion Collection available free to users. In August, Kanopy will add more than 20 movies, including award-winning documentaries, horror movies and foreign films.

While some free streaming channels rely on commercials, Kanopy partners with libraries. All it takes is a library card to stream a handful of movies a month — Kanopy charges your library system $2 per movie instead of you.

Kanopy is currently available from more than 4,000 libraries, including in Phoenix, Los Angeles, Seattle, Austin, Toronto, Washington D.C., Philadelphia and San Francisco (the New York Public Library recently dropped support for Kanopy, citing high costs).

New Kanopy Movies - August 2019

Movies new to Kanopy this month include Frederick Wiseman's latest documentary, 2018's Monrovia, Indiana, providing an intimate profile of the town of 1,063 residents. Other highlights include David Fincher's chilling 2007 serial killer movie Zodiac and 2018's Lords of Chaos, a lightly fictionalized retelling of the Norwegian black metal scene which eventually turned deadly. Also new this month is SXSW festival hit Thunder Road, which combines drama and dark comedy in its portrayal of a small town cop's breakdown.

"Zodiac" follows a cartoonist (Jake Gyllenhaal) with a blossoming obsession with learning the Zodiac Killer's true identity. Paramount Pictures
