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.

Barry Lyndon

Stanley Kubrick’s lavish William Makepeace Thackeray adaptation is, increasingly, the film that suggests his greatest mastery. It’s also his most heartbreaking picture, with a magnificent turn by Ryan O’Neal as the Irish social climber. IFC Center plays it as a part of a 20th-anniversary celebration of The Sopranos—series creator David Chase is a huge fan.

IFC Center, Greenwich Village (ifccenter.com). Sat 12 noon; $16.
