  • 1. Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb + Sweet Revenge

    The film
    Head to Film Forum for a screening celebrating the classic film’s 50th anniversary. Legend has it that the fearsomely brilliant Stanley Kubrick shot an elaborate pie fight in his classic comedy's War Room—a climax he subsequently cut for being too ridiculous. Good instincts, we say: How do you top nuclear annihilation?

    The food
    Two blocks from Film Forum, have your own apocalyptic pie feast at Food & Drink Award–winning bakeshop Sweet Revenge. Go savory with a classic English-style shepherd's pie or full-blown sweet with salted-caramel-pecan, spiced-apple streusel and pumpkin-walnut crumble varieties. Hell, it's the end of the world—order them all.

  • 2. The Immigrant + Russ & Daughters

    The film
    We're crazy about James Gray's latest: an old-fashioned melodrama set in NYC's 1920s tenements and starring Marion Cotillard as a naive Pole fresh off the boat. Opposite her, the ever-astounding Joaquin Phoenix plays Bruno Weiss, a huckster with a silver tongue. We’re recommending watching it at the Angelika Film Center, due to its proximity to…

    The food
    Founded by a fellow early-20th-century Polish immigrant, Joel Russ, century-old lox emporium Russ & Daughters recently debuted its sit-down offshoot on Orchard Street. Do it up old-school with shareable Yiddish plates like potato knishes with caramelized onions, smoked Nova boards with bialys and capers, and pickled-herring canapés.

  • 3. Godzilla + Masa

    The film
    Of course you're going to see the big, green guy on the rampage, cities flattened underfoot. The special effects in Gareth Edwards's reboot are staggering—and there's only one way to see the film: large, in IMAX 3-D, at Loews Lincoln Square (where you can actually reserve seats).

    The food
    Spring for a meal as big and bold as that daikaiju icon—we're talking sushi mecca Masa, located in the Time Warner Center, mere blocks away. If the $450 omakase price tag has you quivering in fear, head to the more wallet-friendly but no less impressive Bar Masa next door, where you can order silky slips of toro and supple tiger prawn à la carte.
