NYC Weekend Watch: Joan of Arc, Grace Jones, Mizoguchi x2, Harun Farocki & More

Written by on April 6, 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.

Quad Cinema

Some of the best films ever made are about Joan of Arc, and they’re now playing at the Quad.

Films starring Alain Delon and American tough guys are screening.


Retrospectives on Grace Jones and Morris Engel take place, while Jafar Panahi’s debut, The White Balloon, plays on Saturday and Sunday.

Personal Problems continues.

Kurosawa’s I Live in Fear screens again Friday and Saturday, with 2046 playing on the latter day.

Film Forum

Two Mizoguchi masterpieces have been restored, as has Corbucci’s The Great Silence.

The Astaire-Hayworth picture You’ll Never Get Rich plays on 35mm this Sunday.
