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.


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.
