Growing up Saturday night was always reserved for special events. Cookouts, drive in movies, TV dinners, and most importantly, time spent with friends and family. The times were simpler. While the world has changed due to innovation and incredible technology, many yearn for family traditions and an opportunity to slow down a bit. We think we can help. After much thought and hearing from our community, WHRO will add classic movies to our Saturday evening line up.
"We are delighted to bring classic movies to WHRO TV and are selecting movies that explore the work of legendary actors and actresses through many important films from their careers. We hope families will enjoying spending Saturday evening with WHRO," explained Heather Mazzoni, Vice President of Content.
From Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Brad Pitt in A River Runs Through It, to Meryl Streep in Kramer vs. Kramer and Sidney Poitier in To Sir, with Love we hope you will enjoy an exciting array of noteworthy performances. Gather your friends and family and join us for our classic movie night, commercial free and made possible by WHRO members.
The Cinema 15 collection joins the WHRO TV schedule Saturdays starting September 2, at 8 p.m.
