It’s our golden anniversary, and as a special gift to our audiences—and all New York movie lovers—we’ve put together a free summer playlist. From June to September, Film at Lincoln Center will continue to celebrate its semi-centennial with a series of double features presented free of charge. We have handpicked 20 films—a combination of our all-time and recent favorites—to be screened across 10 Thursdays, culminating on September 11 with a final selection to be decided by a public vote. Our “mixtape” zigzags across recent film history, pairing titles in a way that speaks to cinema’s diversity of expression, and includes important premieres and acclaimed films from our most popular year-round festivals, series, and new releases. As these selections illustrate, we plan to extend our commitment to introducing New York audiences to cinema’s most vital and innovative voices—past, present, and future.
