Since any New York 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.

Film Society of Lincoln Center

“Lynch/Rivette” enters its final weekend, and some terrific things are in store.

The great, inevitable double feature is this Saturday, when Celine and Julie Go Boating plays ahead of Mulholland Dr. Take a plunge into madness on Sunday with INLAND EMPIRE and The Story of Marie and Julien, as well as a repeat of Lost Highway. All are on 35mm.
