For classic movie lovers and Turner Classic Movies fans, August and Summer Under the Stars are a favorite time of the year. Well, maybe not so much August if you live in the South or anywhere else that is seeing unusually hot temperatures, however it does give us more incentive to stay in and watch all of our favorite movies from our favorite stars.
We changed the layout of the schedule this year. It now includes a picture of the star, so if you are new to watching classic movies, you will know who is being honored.
Our Must-See Picks are listed in each Star’s box, see below. To see the entire schedule for each star just click the “movies being shown” box.
If you prefer to download the schedule you can do so, here, however it does not include our must-see movie picks.
