NYC Weekend Watch: Věra Chytilová, ‘Bad Lieutenant,’ Latin American Sci-Fi & More
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.
A series on Czech titan Věra Chytilová has commenced.
King Hu’s The Fate of Lee Khan has been restored.
Films about Thelonious Monk play back-to-back.

A series on Latin America’s recent sci-fi cinema gets underway with the Solaris-esque Goodbye Dear Moon this Sunday.
