NYC Weekend Watch: ‘Anatahan,’ ‘The King of Comedy,’ ‘Wavelength’ & More

Written by on February 3, 2017 


Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.


The restoration of Josef von Sternberg’s Anatahan, about which more here, is now playing. Fellini’s Roma also shows on Friday.

Hitchcock, Lucas, and more are highlighted in a ’70s Universal series.

The Land Before Time plays on Saturday.
