Each month, Netflix bids adieu to multiple movies and TV shows to make way for new content. September’s causality list is noticeably larger than usual and includes several fan favourites. Here’s the full list.

The following list – which comes courtesy of New On Netflix – consist of movies and TV shows that Netflix pays a licencing fee for. Just to be clear, Netflix doesn’t remove original programming – so stuff like Stranger Things, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and House Of Cards are safe. (For now.)

We’ve included the expiration dates so you know precisely how long you have to watch them and trailers to our personal recommendations. Watch ’em while you still can.

Tonight sees the departure of Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning masterpiece Schindler’s List. If you never got around to watching it, set three hours aside this evening before it disappears. (Incidentally, did you know Spielberg released Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List in the same year? How nuts is that?)

Also worth a watch are 8 Mile, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Wanted, Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes movies, David Fincher’s Zodiac (a must-see if you enjoyed Mindhunter), “10” and George Harrison: Living in the Material World. Oh, and kids will be devastated to learn that Despicable Me and its sequel are both getting jettisoned from Netflix. (Let them down gently.)
