Tarantino Picks Flicks

Director Quentin Tarantino turns classic movie curator next week with a selection of 10 films, mostly from the 1960s, screening over Sony Movie Channel — available via cable, satellite and a handful of subscription streamers.

Tarantino’s picks – airing as double features Sunday to Thursday (July 21-25) at 8 pm ET – will serve as a promotional tie-in to the July 26th theatrical debut of Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time … In Hollywood, set 50 years ago in 1969.
