NYC Weekend Watch: Shaw Brothers Horror, Shriek Show, Frederick Wiseman & More

Written by on October 19, 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.


A series on Shaw Brothers horror has begun, while the “Bloodthirsty Trilogy” has showings

Long praised as superior to its English-language counterpart, the Spanish Dracula screens with live musical accompaniment.

The 35mm run of Masculin Féminin continues.


The 12-hour “Shriek Show” commences and scars on Saturday.
