FADE TO BLACK: The designer agnès b. has selected her favorite flicks from the Twenties and Thirties for a film series at the Anthology Film Archives that starts Wednesday and runs through July 21. The Crosby Street Hotel is staging another series, thanks to Helmut Lang and the Council of Fashion Designers of America. First up will be “Quadrophenia” Wednesday night, and “Pulp Fiction” will follow Aug. 10. “Japan Cuts: The New York Festival of Contemporary Japanese Cinema” gets going Thursday at the Japan Society.

RiverFlicks for Grown-Ups is planning seven outdoor screenings on Wednesday nights at Pier 63, starting this Wednesday with “Silver Linings Playbook.” Friday nights are set aside for RiverFlicks for Kids. Further north, the Parks Department presents Movies Under the Stars on Wednesday nights on Pier 1 at West 70th Street. In keeping with this summer’s theme of “Song & Dance,” the 1933 classic “Duck Soup” and last year’s “Pitch Perfect” will be among the ones shown.

Those in search of more natural light shows should head to the High Line above West 13th Street on Tuesday nights. Once dusk settles in, the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York lets passersby stargaze with its high-powered telescopes. And as of Wednesday, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum’s Space Shuttle Pavilion reopens to show off the original space shuttle Enterprise — complete with a film narrated by the original “Mr. Spock,” Leonard Nimoy.
