The Godfather


FRI, DEC 20 – MON, DEC 23

Double Feature with THE GODFATHER: PART II (Saturday–Monday)

1972 • dir Francis Ford Coppola w/Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, Sterling Hayden, Richard Conte • 175 min • 35mm

One of the greatest gangster pictures of all time, THE GODFATHER follows the chain of circumstances that inevitably pull war hero Michael Corelone (Pacino), the youngest son of mob boss Don Vito Corleone (Brando), into the family business. Set over the course of the decade from 1945-1955, THE GODFATHER is epic in scope yet surprisingly intimate in execution – thanks largely to a close, dark style created by director Coppola and legendary cinematographer Gordon Willis.

Staff Pick: Joey, Cal
Cal: “It doesn’t get much better than this! Especially on film!”

“The Godfather is overflowing with life, rich with all the grand emotions and vital juices of existence, up to and including blood.”
– Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“A brilliant conjuring act, inviting us to consider the Mafia entirely on its own terms.”
– Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
