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.
King Hu’s The Fate of Lee Khan has been restored.
The Aki Kaurismäki series is still running.
The largest-ever US retrospective of one of our greatest filmmakers continues with “Claire Denis: Strange Desire.”
“The Other Japanese New Wave,” often showing on 35mm, will electrify.
