You could be forgiven in thinking, with a title such as Lady Macbeth, we are about to get yet another film adaptation based on Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth and in particular his wife. Most recently the play adapted for the big screen in 2015 with Michael Fassbender playing Macbeth and Marion Cotillard as his long-suffering wife Lady Macbeth.

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.
