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.

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Are these not the most euphoric 12 opening minutes of any movie? Raiders may still be Steven Spielberg’s greatest triumph simply for unearthing the pleasure of the chase, extending the kinetic magic for a perfect two hours and then hiding away the Ark in a dusty warehouse as if to say: Go find your own adventure. Don’t pass up the chance to catch it on a huge screen, as it was intended.
