Canela.TV is making more than 100 films from the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema available exclusively on its platform. On Thursday (June 13), the films will start streaming for free under the platform’s new “Cine de Oro” collection with more being released throughout the year after being restored to high definition.

“We are delighted to bring these Mexican Cine de Oro classics to our viewers to stream for free and exclusively on Canela.TV,” Isabel Rafferty Zavala, founder and CEO Canela Media, said in a statement. “These films are a testament to their relevance and entertainment value for every generation to celebrate our cultural heritage. Canela Media is committed to preserving these film treasures for generations to come.”

Some of the films included in the “Cine de Oro” collection include the 1945 comedy Me He de Comer Esa Tuna starring Jorge Negrete; the 1946 drama-thriller La Devoradora starring María Félix; and the 1955 comedy-drama Escuela de Vagabundos starring Pedro Infante.

Other notable films now streaming include Lo Que le Pasó a Sansón, Duro pero Seguro, Sor Tequila, Por la Puerta Falsa, Educando a Papá, Departamento de Soltero and La Criada Bien Criada. Some of the films have been provided by the Diana International Films library.

“This incredible library of films has been an important part of my family’s legacy for decades,” Fernando de Fuentes III, President of Diana International Films, said in a statement. “In 1942 my grandfather founded Diana International Films to celebrate the many films he directed and the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema. We are excited that Canela.TV will present these cultural treasures to a larger audience, including the U.S., for many generations of Latinos to enjoy.”
