New prints! Join us for two of the best, most influential, and most quoted films ever made. In The Godfather, an aging Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando) brings his reluctant son Michael (Al Pacino) into the family crime business. In the two timelines of Part II, we see the rise of young Vito (Robert De Niro) and the struggles of Michael to keep the business—and the family—intact. Outstanding performances by John Cazale, James Caan, Robert Duvall, and Diane Keaton, among so many others. 35mm prints from the Yale Film Archive. Special thanks to Paramount Pictures Corporation.

Free and open to the public. All attendees must be asymptomatic and fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (including boosters when eligible) and should be prepared to show proof of vaccination. Masks are recommended.
