(CNN) – If you're planning to stay home New Year's Day and stream classic movies on Netflix, you may be out of luck.

More than 80 movies and a handful of TV shows will no longer be available for streaming through the site as of Wednesday, according to a post on Reddit.

It's not clear who posted the list.

But a search on Netflix for many of the titles reveals that they will indeed expire Wednesday for Netflix's nearly 40 million streaming subscribers.

The company's DVD customers may still order the discs in the mail.

Netflix did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but a representative told CNET the company routinely adds and deletes titles from its streaming service due to licensing contracts for exclusive content.

The list of streaming movies due to expire includes such favorites as: Being John Malkovich, Braveheart, Do the Right Thing, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Flashdance, Roman Holiday, Platoon, Titanic, Top Gun and War Games.

    On a wet Saturday night in September 2016, Xavier Thigpen feasted. A season-high four tackles-for-loss against Troy, the most by a Golden Eagle since Cleveland Brown Jamie Collins recorded the same in 2012. Thigpen has continued his tenacious play through three games of 2017: Nine tackles, one sack and a fumble recovery to the end zone so far. This season will be the last ride for "PawPaw" Thigpen.
