Stream 100+ Free Movies from Paramount Pictures on YouTube: Hamlet, Ironweed & More

We got a nice tip from one of our readers, and wanted to pass it along. Paramount Pictures has launched an official, verified YouTube channel — called The Paramount Vault — where you can watch full length films for free [update: if you’re based in the US]. You won’t find Paramount’s best-known films in The Vault, but nonetheless there are some quality, if not entertaining, picks among the 150 films.

The movies are grouped into the following playlists: Classics, Comedy, Action/Adventure, Drama, Horror, Westerns, Science Fiction, and Thrillers. And they include motion pictures like 1987’s Ironweed with Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep, Hamlet (1990) with Glenn Close and Mel Gibson, Paris When It Sizzles (1964) with William Holden and Audrey Hepburn, Elvis in King Creole (1958), Charlton Heston in the 1950 noir film Dark City, Gene Wilder in Funny About Love (1990), and Margot at the Wedding (2007) with Nicole Kidman, Jack Black and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

The Paramount Vault has been verified by YouTube, so it looks like it’s the real deal. There is also an accompanying verified Facebook page.

If you stream the playlist embedded at the top, you can watch 43 dramas in a row, starting with Ironweed and Hamlet.

The selections above will be added to our list, 4,000+ Free Movies Online: Great Classics, Indies, Noir, Westerns, Documentaries & More. Enjoy!

Update: it looks like you need to be based in the US to view these films — something that wasn’t apparent to me beforehand since I’m based here. My apologies to anyone who’s geoblocked.
