NYC Weekend Watch: ‘House of Pleasures,’ ‘The Last Movie,’ Bill Gunn, Bob Fosse & More

Written by on August 3, 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.

Film Society of Lincoln Center

Films by Bonello, Rivette, Akerman, Carax, and more screen in “The Female Gaze,” a retrospective of female cinematographers. Read our piece on it here.


The rarely screened work of Yoshishige Yoshida gets a three-title outing, while a look at the films of actor and director Gérard Blain is underway.

The restoration of Wanda continues alongside Dennis Hopper’s The Last Movie and a print of Wisconsin Death Trip.


A series on Sogo Ishii, “the godfather of Japanese cyberpunk cinema,” is a must.

Quad Cinema

Bob Fosse series, an obvious must, is now running, while The Hammer Horror retrospective “The Decadent Years” wraps up.


Bill Gunn’s Ganja & Hess and Personal Problems have screenings, while Dog Day Afternoon plays this Saturday.


Put on your best dancing shoes: “Rock ‘n’ Film” is going to be fun.

Film Forum

The theater returns with a Jacques Becker retrospective and restoration of The Atomic Cafe.

Museum of the Moving Image

The latest 70mm series is underway, mixing the new 2001 print with The Sound of Music.
