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.
Museum of the Moving Image
Matthew Weiner will present a screening of The Apartment in the latest screening for “Required Viewing: Mad Men’s Movie Influences.” Following that are prints of Vertigo and Blue Velvet on Saturday; both repeat on Sunday.

A restoration of Marco Bellocchio‘s China Is Near starts showing this weekend.
An archival print of Heidi screens on Sunday.
