The New Yorker is going to the movies, with a new 18-film series at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater. Event will kick off with the premiere of Woody Allen’s “Sweet and Lowdown” on Nov. 20.
Presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center, “The New Yorker Goes to the Movies,” will spotlight features and shorts based on ideas culled from the magazine, including Woody Allen’s “Bananas,” Bernardo Bertolucci’s “Last Tango in Paris,” and Richard Brooks’ “In Cold Blood.”
“No American magazine has had a closer or more sustained relationship with the movies,” said David Denby, the New Yorker film critic and co-curator of the series, along with the Film Society’s Kent Jones.
Series, which will also feature “L.A. Story,” “Sunday Bloody Sunday,” “Casualties of War” and “Monkey Business,” among other pics, will run through Dec. 9.
