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.
“3D in the 21st Century,” an extensive view of the controversial format, begins this weekend with Step Up 3D and Justin Bieber: Never Say Never (the latter paired with Joule). Avatar can be seen this Saturday, while Goodbye to Language (paired with the experimental Chromatic Frenzy) and Cave of Forgotten Dreams (paired with Aurora Borealis) play on Sunday.
A 70mm print of The Sound of Music can be seen on Saturday.
