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.

Anthology Film Archives

With the release of Double Play, a retrospective of Richard Linklater and James Benning has been organized by that film’s director, Gabe Klinger.

The Elmore Leonard series continues.

“Femmes Noirs” brings a 35mm double-feature of The Postman Always Rings Twice and Mildred Pierce this Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, one might see Leave Her to Heaven paired with Out of the Past, the latter showing on film.

A Hard Day’s Night continues.

Nitehawk Cinema

Friday and Saturday offer midnight showings of Two-Lane Blacktop (under “Burn N’ Rubber”) and A Nightmare on Elm Street (under “Summer of Surrealism”).

Under the “Surrealism” banner, too, is a 90-minute program of surrealist shorts scored by Alyse Lamb.


Viridiana comes through Friday and Saturday, the latter day offering a chance to see it back-to-back with Tristana.
