Since any New York 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
“David Bordwell: How 1940s Critics Changed American Film Culture” offers a crash course in one sliver of film history. Citizen Kane screens on Friday and Saturday; this Sunday, see The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Counter-Attack, and The Picture of Dorian Gray.
A new restoration of Scorsese‘s masterful The King of Comedy plays throughout the weekend.
If you can’t Hamilton tickets, 1776 on Sunday morning should do some good.
Anthology Film Archives
Dovzhenko‘s Zvenigora plays on Friday.
Eyes Wide Shut has midnight showings this Friday and Saturday.
