"Cohen Film Classics" offers viewers a chance to watch some of the most iconic films that defined the 20th century cinema landscape. The new Friday night series highlights movies featuring Alfred Hitchcock, Vivien Leigh, Fritz Lang, Laurence Olivier, Luc Besson and more. 

The series is hosted by producer Charles Cohen, an influential patron, innovator and visionary of culture and the arts. To bring this series to life, Cohen opened his vault of over 700 titles to create a curated mix of ten films — documentaries, musicals, comedies, animation, dramas and avant-garde works. Cohen has made it his mission to share his passion for collecting rare films and bringing them back to life with the care and attention they deserve, many of which have been beautifully restored to their original condition.
