ENCORE Channel September Programming Highlights

If you receive Encore Channel no your cable box, you might be interested to see what this channel has in store for viewers for the month of September.    Traditionally Encore shows older movies that sometimes don't spark one's interest. At least every time I check out my cable guide, but this list below has some interesting movies... including the Labor Day superhero movie marathon & Arnold Schwarzenegger spotlight day.
