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
“Mizoguchi,” indeed. A staggeringly comprehensive series, one of the best we’ll see all year, begins this weekend. Ugetsu plays on Friday (5/2); Sansho the Bailiff and Street of Shame arrive this Saturday (5/3); and, Sunday (5/4), Song of Home, Oyuki the Virgin, and Sisters of the Gion can be seen.
Othello continues through this week.
A 35mm print of Astaire and Rogers in Swing Time is this Sunday’s (5/4) selection.
Alan Arkin and Peter Falk are celebrated in “The In-Laws + Big Trouble,” bringing those titles (the latter of which is John Cassavetes‘s final film) over the weekend.
“Nitehawk Nasties” presents midnight / 35mm showings of Pieces, playing Friday (5/2) and Saturday.
