Since any New York City 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.
Edward Yang’s Taipei Story has been restored and begins playing this week.

Per Deadline, the new recruits now join Liam Neeson – Hollywood’s rejuvenated action icon if ever there was one – for Hans Petter Moland’s Rocky Mountains-set actioner, itself an English-language remake of Moland’s own Norwegian pic, In Order of Disappearance. Frank Baldwin is on board to hash out a screenplay with the Scandanivan filmmaker, while Michael Shamberg will produce on behalf of StudioCanal.
Details on how Forsythe and/or Rossum factor into the plot remain few and far between; so far, the only logline confirms Neeson as Nels an “upright snowplow driver in a glitzy ski town whose life is turned upside down when his son is murdered by the powerful local drug kingpin.

Emmy Rossum has joined the cast of Hard Powder, the new action film that will star Liam Neeson in the lead role. Hans Petter Moland is remaking his original 2014 Norwegian movie In Order of Disappearance from a new screenplay by Frank Baldwin.
Here’s the plot courtesy of Deadline.
Nels (Neeson) is an upright snowplow driver in a glitzy ski town whose life is turned upside down when his son is murdered by the powerful local drug kingpin. He then seeks to dismantle the cartel, but his vengeful crusade sparks a turf war between a local gangster and a Native American mafia boss.

Mother nature, alongside man-made satellites, appears to be getting her revenge on a world that has been abused at the hands of humankind in a chillingly surreal teaser trailer for Geostorm, a natural disaster movie of epic proportions.
Think The Day after Tomorrow crossed with San Andreas and you’d be on the right windy track. In this teaser we witness a magnitude of electrical storms, tornadoes and huge tidal waves engulfing numerous cities across the world including India, Dubai and the Us, causing complete and utter devastation whilst our protagonists watch in complete horror.
2017 seems to be the year for directorial feature film debuts as writer and producer of Independence Day, Dean Devlin, takes the helm on this suspense thriller. Can Devlin do what so many who have come before him have failed to do and make this »

Let’s face it. Geostorm is certainly not the first nor is the last movie that amplifies some kind of potential threat to our planet. We’ve seen plenty of apocalyptic “the world is ending” kind of films before. With aliens we saw Independence Day and War of the Worlds. With asteroids we saw Armageddon and Deep Impact. With climate we saw The Day After Tomorrow. With earthquakes we saw San Andreas. With disease we saw Contagion. The list goes on. There will always be some movie about the earth ending in some way. Now we’re being introduced to Geostorm. Gerard Butler

If you ever watched The Day After Tomorrow, and felt that it could do with silly, over the top action beats and a more rugged hero, Geostorm could be the movie for you. With Independence Day and Stargate producer Dean Devlin making his directorial debut, the movie sees Gerard Butler tasked with saving the planet after a network of weather controlling satellites malfunction, threatening Earth with a massively destructive worldwide storm. The first trailer has come our way, putting the focus on the main reason anyone will see this: effects. And I gotta say, they’re pretty damn in impressive. The story may be on have the feeling of your typical Syfy movie, but a lot of fun is promised at the very least. Released: October 20th »

"In the future, the technology that controls the weather, controls the world." Warner Bros has debuted the first official teaser trailer for the disaster movie titled Geostorm, which follows in the footsteps of movies like 2012 and The Day After Tomorrow by presenting a scenario where the entire world is being destroyed by a massive destabilization of our climate. Gerard Butler stars as the hero who has to save the day entire world by going into space to try and fix the problem. The full cast includes Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Alexandra Maria Lara, Daniel Wu, with Oscar nominees Ed Harris and Andy Garcia. Thankfully this first teaser trailer doesn't hold back on shots of the destruction, but as always, I'm hoping there's an interesting story to follow here or this is going to be forgotten. The weather control concept seems so cheesy. Here's the first official trailer for Dean Devlin's Geostorm, »

Long-time Roland Emmerich collaborator Dean Devlin directs Geostorm, a big budget disaster movie with so much devastation it can only be described as "Emmerich-esque". Very reminiscent of The Day After Tomorrow, in which global warming turned the planet into a deep freeze, the bombastic Jerry Bruckheimer production stars Gerard Butler as a man-on-a-mission to space to determine what's gone so wrong with some newfangled weather satellites that the entire planet is being destroyed. I'm in! Synopsis: When catastrophic climate change endangers Earth's very survival, world governments unite and create the Dutch Boy Program: a world wide net of satellites, surrounding the planet, that are armed with geoengineering technologies designed to stave off the natural disasters. After successfully protecting the planet for two years, something is...

Geostorm looks to be in an eco apocalypse film in the best tradition of Roland Emmerich (Read: The Day after Tomorrow, 2012) which is not surprising considering it was directed by long time Emmerich collaborator, Dean Devlin.

This October, the entire world will face deadly, devastating weather that will be impossible to survive in Geostorm. The first trailer for this thriller will erupt like molten lava tomorrow. Today, Warner Bros. and Skydance have unleashed several teasers from around the globe.
The first tease has a series of deadly twisters setting down to destroy the landscape. The second video shows a giant tidal wave hitting a city. And the third clip is so hot, it literally cooks eggs on the sidewalk. This footage is all very reminiscent of the grand disaster movies we've seen over the past couple of decades. From Independence Day, to The Day After Tomorrow to Twister and the more recent San Andreas. Geostorm looks like all of these movies put in a blender and served with a wild side of 'Oh, My Gosh!'

Richard Rose, artistic director of Toronto's Tarragon Theater and a close personal friend, on Tuesday announced McMillan died Sunday in Toronto after a long struggle with thyroid cancer.
"As an actor he understood the absurd and the contradictory. I don’t think I have ever seen anyone quite that sad on the stage, and for that the audiences just loved him. You couldn’t take your eyes off him," Rose added <a href="http://www.tarragontheatre.com/richard-mcmillan-memorial/" »

Using music as a tool of protest isn’t anything new. But with the current political climate, we have a sneaking suspicion that music in the U.S. is about to get ever-so-slightly more angry. Here are the most important ones from the genre’s history in America.
“I Didn’t Raise My Boy to Be a Soldier” (1915)
One of the first anti-war pop songs, this song was a hit in 1915, selling 650,000 copies. It also drew scorn from a number of people, including Theodore Roosevelt, who said, “Foolish people who applaud a song entitled ‘I Didn’t Raise My Boy »
