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 Modern Art

Godard‘s Every Man for Himself plays Friday and Sunday (6/20, 6/22) under “Carte Blanche: MK2,” the series also presenting Taxi Blues, The Beekeeper, and Alain Resnais‘s Mélo on Saturday (6/21). The Wall also plays this Sunday.

For “On the Edge: Brazilian Film Experiments of the 1960s and Early 1970s,” Mangue-Bangue and Triste trópico play this Saturday and Sunday.

A70-7950

Museum of the Moving Image

“See It Big! Science Fiction” brings an irresistible mix. The restored print of Resnais’s Je t’aime, je t’aime plays Friday and Sunday (6/20, 6/22), on the latter day preceded by Tarkovsky‘s Solaris. This Saturday (6/21), Videodrome and The Terminator can be seen.

Nitehawk Cinema

The unshakably, disturbingly strange Liquid Sky plays on 35mm this Friday and Saturday (6/20, 6/21) as part of “June Midnite: Future Noir,” while Big Trouble in Little China plays under their “Kurt Russell — The Works” banner.

Saturday and Sunday mornings, The Abyss plays for “June Brunch: ILM.”

Oklahoma! also runs on Sunday.
