What Should I Be Seeing in New York This Weekend?

Sundays may be a “wan, stuff shadow of a robust Saturday” or a day of “forced leisure for folks who have no aptitude for leisure,” according to Tom Robbins, but a weekend is still a weekend. The pleasure of a Friday night, the knowing the burdens of work week have a brief respite carry themselves into the following two days of leisure, and what better way to indulge in that leisure than heading to the cinema.

And this weekend, there are more than enough wonderful films showing around New York for you to disappear into. Whether it’s your favorite Bruce Weber documentary or some of 2013’s most wonderful films, there’s surely something to satisfy every cinematic appetite. I’ve founded up the best of what’s playing around the city, so peruse our list, and enjoy.

From Wong Kar-wai to John Waters, Here’s What You Should Be Seeing in New York City This Weekend

If Wong Kar-wai has taught us anything from his films, it’s that love is all a matter of timing. What we hold in the grandest of proportions can be unhinged from the smallest fraction of time, whether we’ve met the right person too late or allowed moments to slip through our fingers in an earlier life. But as tomorrow begins the start to another weekend, you’ll have two days of relaxation to reflect on the myriad ways time has put a expiration date on the many loves that pass in and out of our lives. 

Or, if you’re looking for a more productive and pleasurable way to spend your time, you can head down to the cinema and dive headfirst into Kar-wai’s world with two of his best films as well as his latest. But if you’re looking for something more, there’s plenty of classics invading our cinemas this weekend—from British psychodramas to sci-fi thrillers and chillers. And alongside, we’d got some of the best premieres of the summer that show just how amazing some of independent cinema’s new talent truly is. So whatever your film fancy, peruse our list, find yourself a king size bag of candy and curl up in a darkened theater tomorrow night. Enjoy.

From David Fincher to David Gordon Green, Here’s What You Should Be Seeing This Weekend in NYC

In the words of Noel Coward, “If you must have motivation, think of your paycheck on Friday.” And thankfully, tomorrow is indeed that day, and we can all take a brief respite from our work and our computers and open ourselves up to life. Whether you’re planning on spending one of your last summer weekends floating in a body of water somewhere peaceful, reclining on your rooftop with the wafting smell of meats grilling, or drowning your lonesome sorrows with a strong drink, there’s always one option that trumps the rest: heading down to the cinema and escaping into another world.

 And this weekend, not only are some wonderful new films premiering around the city, but a generous amount of classics and brilliant rare prints have also made their way into our theaters. From Robert Altman’s atmospheric dreamscape 3 Women and David Fincher’s nihilistic gut-puncher Fight Club to Alain Resnais’ stunning Hiroshima mon amour and Charlie Chaplin’s iconic The Great Dictator, there is certainly something to satisfy everyone’s film fancy. So to make your choice a little easier, I’ve rounded up the best of what’s playing in the city this weekend. Peruse our list, grab yourself some M&Ms and a bucket of popcorn to thrown them in, and enjoy.

From Altman to Preminger: Check Out The Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Amazing Summer Schedule

Yesterday, we shared our ultimate list of the best alternate films to watch this summer. But when it comes to heading to the cinema, thanks to the wonderful theaters hosting a great wealth of retrospectives, you don’t have to always spend your money on the summer’s biggest blockbusters. No, this sweaty season looks to be overflowing with the best cinematic walks down memeory lane—and when it comes to whose leading the pack, the Film Society of Lincoln Center is bringing you some of the most amazing screening this summer. From supernatural and ethereal wonders to movies that defined a generation, Film Linc’s summer schedule is going to make you want to crack open your wallet for all the right reasons. 

While they’re currently hosting the New York Asian Film Festival, every Friday you can catch their weekly midnight screenings that include Tony Scott’s The Hunger, John Water’s Pink Flamingos, and many more on the upcoming lineup. But what I’m definitely most excited about is their freshly announced Fasten Your Seatbelt’s (Part 2): 20th Century Fox series. 
 
Programming Associate Josh Strauss says: 
The Fasten Your Seatbelts film series offer a great opportunity for both dedicated cinephiles and casual film fans to sit side-by-side and enjoy films that have stood the test of time and continue to entertain today. This time, with our spotlight shining on 20th Century Fox, anyone would be hard pressed not to find a favorite amongst this group of films, all presented in fine fashion via new digital restorations or pristine 35mm prints projected on the grand Walter Reade Theater screen.
Take a look at what’s playing and get your tickets straight away.

I’ve rounded up the best of what’s playing throughout New York City this weekend—so peruse the list, see what you’re in the mood for, go get yourselves some Twizzlers, and head down to the cinema.
