NYC Weekend Watch: Quad’s Return, James Gray, Frederick Wiseman, De Niro Essentials & More

Written by on April 14, 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.

Quad Cinema

The Quad has returned and looks very fine, their first weekend running from a Lina Wertmüller series to watching a David Lynch classic with Greta Gerwig to Fassbinder to David Bowie. And that’s only about the half of it.


James Gray, Universal ’70s classics, Alphaville, Donnie Darko, Jeanne Dielman, Ghost in the Shell — a very packed weekend.

Film Forum

Frederick Wiseman’s early work is being given a complete retrospective.

Funny Face and a print of King Vidor’s The Big Parade play this Sunday.

Film Society of Lincoln Center

A retrospective of De Niro’s best films is ongoing, which means you’ll be getting prime, 35mm-projected work from De Palma, Scorsese, Leone, and Cimino.

Martin Scorsese docs screen throughout the weekend, including films about Bob Dylan and his own parents.

Nitehawk Cinema

Prints of Ralph Bakshi’s American Pop and Woody Allen’s Melinda and Melinda will play.
