SCREENING

The Godfather

Ongoing

Cinematographer: Gordon Willis

Dir. Francis Ford Coppola. 1972, 175 mins. 35mm. With Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton. The granddaddy of contemporary crime films remains one of Hollywood’s greatest works of modern storytelling. With this first part of the multilayered Corleone saga, a violent allegory of American industry, Coppola instantly became a cinematic titan, Brando found a colossal role he would always be remembered for, and Pacino became a bona fide movie star. It is gripping from the first frame to last, with exquisite visual texture courtesy of cinematographer Gordon Willis.

Tickets for Friday evening screenings: $12 ($9 for senior citizens and students / free for Museum members) and includes admission to the Museum’s galleries, which are open until 8:00 p.m.
