Cinematical tells us that Film Forum will be screening newly restored 35mm prints of The Godfather and The Godfather Part II for three weeks beginning Sept. 12. There’s no added footage or CGI effects (this ain’t no big-time Star Wars re-release) but, rather, tastefully restored productions under the direction of director Coppola, original cinematographer Gordon Willis and film historian Robert A. Harris. You’ll see Brando in a whole new light!
The Godfather will run on its own from Sept. 12 through Sept. 18, followed by The Godfather Part II from Sept. 19 through Sept. 25. Then you can hunker down for an all-day theater event, with both the Godfathers screening back-to-back from Sept. 26 through Oct. 2. Get tickets here.
