– “3-D Auteurs,” a 19-day, 34-film festival spotlighting stereoscopic movies by some of history’s most distinguished directors, will run at Film Forum November 11 – 29. The festival spans 3-D’s earliest days (including some turn-of-the-century films by pioneer Georges Méliès) to the present, and represents virtually every genre, including Westerns, Film Noir, and Science Fiction. Hollywood’s first big 3-D craze (sometimes called 3-D’s “golden era”), intended to offset the threat of television, came in the early 1950s, with such movies as Hitchcock’s “Dial M For Murder,” André De Toth’s “House of Wax” and Jack Arnold’s “Creature From the Black Lagoon” (all included in the series).
Hollywood produced roughly 50 movies in the process from 1952 to 1954, before fizzling out and being overtaken by »

Since any New York 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.
It’s a very De Palma weekend, with Dressed to Kill showing this Friday, Scarface and Blow Out on Saturday, and The Fury this Sunday.
Looney Tunes: Back In Action screens on Saturday.
Underground New York filmmaker Beth B. is celebrated in a weekend-long retrospective.
A new 16mm print of Kapauku plays on Sunday.

"Call Her Applebroog" by Beth B is a poignant and intimate portrait of renowned artist, Ida Applebroog, who grew up in an Orthodox Jewish household with an immigrant father who only wanted to have sons; instead there were three girls. It is a cathartic story of self-realization and the act of art-making as a lifesaving parachute.
The film reveals Applebroog's groundbreaking artwork that has been an enduring enquiry into the polemics of human relations and power. More intimately, it is about her dynamic family relationships - a story that Beth knows well - Ida is her mother.
"Call Her Applebroog" will have its world premiere on Friday February 26, 2016 at the Museum of Modern Art. Ida and Beth will be present at the screening for a Q&A.
Tickets will go on sale two weeks prior to the event
The film is being distributed by Zeitgeist Films. A theatrical release is being planned for the summer.

The film is a tableau of Applebroog’s groundbreaking work and, more intimately, her dynamic family relationships. The official synopsis reads: "'Call Her Applebroog' is a poignant and intimate portrait of Applebroog, who grew up in an Orthodox Jewish household with an immigrant father who only wanted to have sons; instead there were three girls.
