Following on the heels of Lionsgate and Focus Features, Paramount has announced weekly streams of classic films, but at $1.99 apiece rather than free.  

The Saturday night series kicks off this week at 8 pm ET with a 25th anniversary celebration of the cult comedy Tommy Boy (1995), hosted by its director Peter Segal.

Coming weeks, also at 8 pm, will feature:

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) on April 25, with Mark A. Altman and Daren Dochterman, who also host the Inglorious Treksperts podcast. Altman is author of The 50 Year Mission: The Complete Uncensored, Oral History of Star Trek, while Dochterman was visual effects supervisor on the Director’s Edition of Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) on May 2, hosted by Andrea Kalas, head of the Paramount Pictures Archives. Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer won an Oscar for their song “Moon River,” while Audrey Hepburn was nominated as Best Actress for her portrayal of the eccentric Holly Golightly.
