The best movie screenings in NYC this week

Each week, our seasoned film critics bring you the very best of New York City's alternative movie screenings and events


Every week, we round up the best movie events happening outside New York’s multiplexes, from major international film festivals (such as Sundance, the Toronto International Film Festival and the Tribeca Film Festival) and revivals at Film Forum and BAM to one-off movie screenings and in-person Q&As with stars, filmmakers and experts. New York also has a thriving film scene in galleries and pop-up venues, and in the summer months, you’ll find a wealth of outdoor screenings in NYC parks and gardens across the city.

Nice list. Now I know what to watch. I also heard that Ghost in the Shell stirs a lot of criticism. I'll ask my friend about the plot of anime.

I recommend seeing the ultra rare screening of the counter culture masterpiece The Magic Garden of Stanley Sweetheart (1970) playing at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Brooklyn, New York on April 26th, 2017 at 9:30pm. This film has not been screened in New York in nearly 50 years, and has never been released on home video in any format. This film is being screened on 35mm, with actress Linda Gillen in person for a Q&A with host Joe Bob Briggs. This is an event not to be missed.

What Happened, Miss Simone?


I implore any cinefile to run out and see Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem. Just magnificent.
