New York City's premiere resource for classic film screenings in the metropolitan area. Offering reviews, recommendations, venues and a host of links keeping classic film and the silver screens alive.

Intermission.

For the bulk of my life I've found myself the resource amongst friends and fellow film fanatics when it came to the doings on NYC's repertory film scene. In the days before smartphones I'd carry a notebook around with me, where I'd handwritten each month's upcoming sked at the usual suspects like MoMA, the Walter Reade, and my friendly neighborhood Film Forum. I kept these listings for my own edification, having pored over each institution's mailed catalogues or, sometimes, visiting the brick & mortar to inquire personally. I started doing this, sadly, once I'd moved into Manhattan properly, after the closures of the great old school venues, places like the 8th st. Cinema, the Thalia, the New Yorker, and the venue that once proudly sat just across the street from where my home of 22 years would be, the Bleecker Street Cinema. We'd lost that circuit, to be sure, but the stalwarts remained, mostly subsidized by corporate and public donations and a still-healthy film school population. And new players like the recently-christened Angelika Film Center were still offering up midnight screenings of cult classics. For the most part, though, it seemed like that particularly romantic sub-section of NYC film culture had begun to subside, on its lurch toward memory, and perhaps rumor.

Still trying to make fewer excuses for the decrese in service and provide more content for the NYC rep film symbiote. The scene is changing, the tech is changing, dear god even my voice is changing, and I even recorded a song with Greg, Marcia, Bobby, Cindy and Jan to commemorate! I didn't intentionally put Jan last, it just seemed like where she'd wanna be. So if you're a regular follower of all things Nitrate Stock, there has definitely been a halt to some services, like my Twitter feed and the Facebook page. but if ya stick with, I promise to repurpose these and all other outlets for a more streamlined experience for you, the pale-skinned movie fanatic whose popcorn butter is 2% blood!
