We have nine months, the whole winter-spring-summer seasons, and a whole lot of waiting to go before the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock arrives in 2019. So what better way to get in the mood than to grab some popcorn, cuddle up on the couch, and binge watch some of the best movies to capture the Woodstock vibe. Whether you opt for a documentary focused on Woodstock, the sixties or the hippie subculture, or if you choose from a myriad of films made over the last fifty years, either way you will find something to transport you back in time.
