`Godfather' movies on big screen this weekend in Cleveland
January 21, 2009 - Andy Gray
Go channel surfing any weekend, and there’s a good chance some channel on cable is playing either “The Godfather” or “The Godfather Part II.”
So while there always an opportunity to see the movies, there’s seldom a chance to see them in the way director Francis Ford Coppola intended.
This weekend the Cleveland Cinematheque, located at the Cleveland Institute of Art at University Circle, will be showing new and restored 35mm prints of the classic films on its big screen.
In a 2002 poll of international film critics conducted by Britain’s Sight & Sound magazine, the two films combined were voted the fourth best movie of all time. And many believe “The Godfather Part II” is the exception to the rule that sequels never are better than the original.
“The Godfather” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 3:30 p.m. Saturday. Fans can enjoy a double header on Saturday by catching “The Godfather Part II” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday or see it at 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $8. For more information call 216-421-7450 or click the link for the Cinematheque.
