Adrian Lyne’s remake of “Lolita” will make its New York premiere July 28 as a benefit for the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

The Film Society and Showtime Networks, which bought the rights to “Lolita,” will present the latest adaptation of the Vladimir Nabakov novel at 7:30 p.m. at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall.

Tickets for the event, which benefits the Film Society’s Campaign for the New Millennium, are $150, $75 and $50. “Lolita” helmer Lyne, stars Jeremy Irons and Dominique Swain and screenwriter Stephen Schiff are expected to attend a cocktail party and the screening.

“It is fitting that an institution dedicated to developing and preserving our artistic heritage and freedom would be the first to show an outstanding film like ‘Lolita,’ ” said Showtime chairman and CEO Matthew Blank. “We at Showtime are extremely proud to present the film and appreciate the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s support in bringing it to the public.”

The cable TV network Showtime bought the new “Lolita,” about a middle-aged man’s obsession with an adolescent girl, in spring after a number of theatrical distributors shied away from it.
