The Godfather (Coppola, 1972): Prince Charles Cinema, 2.20pm

This Hollywood classic is on an extended run at the Prince Charles Cinema and there are 35mm screenings on March 13th to 15th. You can find the full derails here.

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.
