From the Coen Brothers to G.W. Pabst, Here’s What You Should Be Seeing This Weekend in New York City

Now that you’ve recovered from your Memorial Day festivities, it’s time for the weekend once again. And although we look to reach some tropical temperatures in the next few days, don’t go running to the beach just yet. There’s the entire rest of your summer to do that, so why not spend the afternoon in the cool breeze of a cinema? Or, if you’re really not that misanthropic, find yourself someone to attend one of the fantastic late night screenings happening around the city this weekend. With the brilliant and bizarre classics  from  Alejandro Jodorowsky, the Coen Brothers, and Orson Welles, to some of the best premieres of the season with Zal Batmanglij’s The East and Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ The Kings of Summer, there’s certainly something to satisfy everyone’s cinematic appetite. I’ve rounded up the best of what’s playing in the city this weekend, so peruse our list, grab yourself some snacks, and enjoy.
