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.
Topping this weekend’s priorities would be Alain Resnais‘s time-travel romance, Je t’aime, je t’aime, which is to be shown on a new 35mm print.
Godard‘s Alphaville has been held over, giving you a few more chances to see the classic sci-fi film on a big screen.
Showing on film this Sunday (2/16) is John Ford‘s Young Mr. Lincoln.
“Valentine’s Day Massacre 2014” brings 35mm prints of Pialat‘s We Won’t Grow Old Together, Albert Brooks‘ Modern Romance, and Andrzej Zulawski‘s Possession. Tickets can be purchased at the theater.
Film Society of Lincoln Center
“Martin Scorsese Presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema” winds down with Kieslowski‘s Blind Chance and Has‘ The Hourglass Sanatorium on Friday (2/14) — both also show on Sunday (2/16) — and The Wedding, The Constant Factor, The Promised Land, and To Kill This Love on Saturday (2/15). Their final day brings Innocent Sorcerers and Austeria.
A 35mm print of The Lady Eve will play on Friday (2/14).
“Japanese Midnite Intensity” brings Gore Verbinski‘s better-than-you-remember The Ring on Friday and Saturday (2/14, 2/15).
Friday is sold-out, but, on Saturday, one can see the as-good-as-you-remember True Romance.
One of Buster Keaton‘s greatest films, Seven Chances — along with a short, One Week — will play on Saturday and Sunday (2/16) with both brunch and, as part of “Live + Sound + Cinema,” a score by Reel Orchestrette.
