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
Olivier Assayas‘s Irma Vep and its central inspiration, Louis Feuillade‘s eight-hour Les Vampires, play on Friday and Saturday & Sunday, respectively, for “Les Vampires & Musidora.”
Confession, from the director of the legendary Hausu, plays under “Unessential Cinema,” and sounds just as insane.
The Wojciech Has retrospective continues.
Museum of Modern Art
Taxi Driver plays before noon.
Rocco and His Brothers continues.
Ghostbusters will show on Sunday morning.
Rambo: First Blood Part II screens at midnight on Friday and Saturday.
