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
Five Mizoguchi films play this weekend, starting with Utamaro and His Five Women on Friday (5/9), then continuing into Saturday (5/10) with Hometown, White Threads of the Waterfall, Musashi Miyamoto, and The Story of the Last Chrysanthemums. Sunday (5/11) sees a repeat of the Saturday slate, minus Story.
Hello Dolly! plays on Saturday.
“Cheeky Monkeys,” a series geared toward children, presents Powell & Pressburger‘s The Boy Who Turned Yellow for Saturday and Sunday brunch showings.
Anthology Film Archives
“Marco Bellocchio: A Retrospective” has one last showing in store, with The Conviction playing this Friday (5/9).
Mary Poppins can be seen this Sunday.
A new restoration of Patrice Chéreau‘s Queen Margot, in its uncut form, will begin playing this weekend. Those who need some more Isabelle Adjani — and I do believe that’s all of us — should take note.
The Parent Trap will be screening Sunday morning (5/11), on the occasion of Mother’s Day.
