NYC Weekend Watch: Bresson, Gus Van Sant, Chantal Akerman & More

Written by on June 29, 2018 


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.

Anthology Film Archives

Essential Cinema will screen multiple Robert Bresson films this weekend.


A spotlight on Gus Van Sant is underway.

Museum of the Moving Image

Hoping to understand Putin’s Russia? This massive, month-long series will bring you as close as a flight to Moscow.


Two excellent Chantal Akerman docs play this weekend.

Quad Cinema

The diamond-sharp Liz Taylor retrospective continues, and leads into the wide-reaching “New York Woman” series.

Village East

The new, “unrestored” 70mm print of 2001: A Space Odyssey is, thanks to Christopher Nolan, now playing.

Nitehawk Cinema

Five Deadly Venoms plays at midnight, while The Thomas Crown Affair and Stand By Me screen before noon.
