Film distributor Park Circus is bringing The Godfather back to the big screen this September, in partnership with Paramount Pictures.
Francis Ford Coppola’s Oscar-winning classic will screen at BFI Southbank from 21 September, and at selected cinemas nationwide – including Picturehouse and Showcase cinemas, HOME Manchester, Glasgow Film Theatre and Filmhouse Edinburgh.
Set in the 1940’s, the film opens at the lavish wedding of Connie, the daughter of the revered Godfather Don Corleone, an event where business and pleasure naturally go hand in hand. Depicting the importance of family life in modern society, this classic film is about a father and his sons, and questions of power and succession.
Starring Marlon Brando as Don Corleone, an ageing Mafia ‘Godfather’, and Al Pacino as Michael, the youngest son who takes up the mantle despite his better intentions, The Godfather was adapted from the bestseller by Mario Puzo by young Italian-American director Francis Ford Coppola.
The Godfather won Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Actor (Brando) and Best Adapted Screenplay and was in 2017 ranked the greatest film of all time by Empire magazine.
