Hey folks,

Hope you don't mind me plugging this but on Letterboxd I compiled a huge list of movies that played on WPIX Channel 11 back in the nineties.

I don't know if yiou ever saw WPIX, but back in the nineties, it was called "New York's Movie Station" and played movies every week night, and all weekend until the WB bought and reformatted with original sitcoms and dramas.

This list is entirely based on memory from what I'd see from 1988 to 1996.

Please let me know if I missed anything!

WPIX also aired Disney's Robin Hood. I have a DVD recording from WPIX's 1992 airing of that film.

Cool list Flix. I remember WPIX still playing movies after it became involved with The WB. Even after The WB went away it was still playing movies. I remember being sick one weekend (September 30th-October 1st) back in 2006, shortly after the end of the WB and the beginning of The CW. That Saturday they played Doug's 1st Movie.

I might be wrong because I was so young at the time, but I remember both Willow and Arachnophobia airing on the network back in the late 90's.
