Netflix adds classic movies, sports to July lineup

Dan Webster

If you're a sports fan and you never got around to seeing the ESPN-produced documentary "The Last Dance," which in 10 episodes tells the story of Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls' quest for a sixth NBA championship, then now might be the time to sign up for Netflix.

"The Last Dance" will be available for streaming on July 19th.

Here are some of the other notable (at least to me) films that Netflix will be adding to its lineup, all available on July 1:

"Airplane!": Can't ever get enough of this 1980 comedy by Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker.

"Mean Streets": Early Martin Scorsese (1973), starring Harvey Keitel and Robert De Niro.

"Schindler's List": This 1993 study of Oskar Schindler won Steven Spielberg his first Best Director Oscar.

"Ali": Michael Mann's 2001 biopic of Muhammad Ali features a convincing performance by Will Smith.

Netflix has a lot of other movies, television shows and original programming to watch. Click here to see what else is on the July calendar — and what will be leaving.
