Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 319: Tue Nov 15

The Godfather (Coppola, 1972): Prince Charles Cinema, 8pm


This 35mm screening is part of the Classic Film season at the Prince Charles Cinema and is followed by The Godfather Part II on November 21st.

Chicago Reader review:
The ultimate family film. Francis Ford Coppola gives full due to the themes of clannish insularity that made Mario Puzo's novel a best seller, though his heart seems to be with Al Pacino's lonely, willful isolation. This 1972 feature is sharp, entertaining, and convincing—discursive, but with a sense of structure and control that Coppola hasn't achieved since. With Marlon Brando, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Sterling Hayden, and Diane Keaton.
