NEW YORK — The American Museum of the Moving Image has unveiled a new, regular weekend repertory screening program to feature new prints of classic movies.

Program will bow July 1 with Michelangelo Antonioni’s “Red Desert.” Other summer selections for Repertory Nights: New Prints of Classic Movies include Akira Kurosawa’s “Rashomon,” Jean-Luc Godard’s “Contempt,” Federico Fellini’s “Nights of Cabiria,” Jean Renoir’s “Grand Illusion,” Vittorio de Sica’s “The Bicycle Thief” and Bob Rafelson’s “Five Easy Pieces.”
