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.

Film Forum

One of the year’s more essential series is already in place, with Film Forum now commencing “The Complete Hitchcock.” It begins with North by Northwest throughout the weekend, accompanied by a Friday (2/21) showing of Blackmail, Saturday and Sunday (2/22, 2/23) screenings of The Lodger, and To Catch a Thief this Sunday.

Anthology Film Archive

Your Friday-night date is planned! Triumph of the Will and two Russ Meyer films will play on 35mm. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls screens the following night, as will Michael Snow‘s Wavelength and < — >. On Sunday evening, Jean Vigo‘s Zero for Conduct screens.

“See It Big! Musicals” comes along with Cabaret, An American in Paris, The Pajama Game, and Show Boat. All are on 35 or 16mm.
