It’s an epic saga that redefined American cinema and remains one of the greatest films ever made. On June 4 and June 7, Fathom Events and the TCM Big Screen Classics series commemorate the 45th anniversary of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather by bringing the milestone film back to movie theaters nationwide for two days only.
The iconic story of a New York mafia family’s rise to power, The Godfather won the Academy Award for Best Picture, was the highest grossing film of 1972 and is widely considered to be one of the most influential films in cinematic history.
Ranked second on the list of greatest American films by the American Film Institute, behind only Citizen Kane, The Godfather will be presented with specially produced commentary by Turner Classic Movies (TCM) host Ben Mankiewicz before and after the feature.
Tickets for The Godfather can be purchased online by visiting FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices.
