The Godfather (50th Anniversary Screening! 2022 Restoration)

An offer you can't refuse.

We’re gonna make you an offer you can’t refuse….

Above all else, we here at the Rio Theatre are movie lovers. And there’s nothing we love more than seeing some of the all-time classics of cinema on the big screen, just as nature intended. With that in mind, we felt there as no better way to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of one of our forever favourites, Francis Ford Coppola‘s THE GODFATHER than with an encore, big screen viewing it so richly deserves.

Even better? As part of the 50th Anniversary of THE GODFATHER, the film has been stunningly restored and remastered in glorious 4K.

Mario Puzo‘s best-selling saga of the Italian-American Corleone crime family, THE GODFATHER, was adapted by Francis Ford Coppola into not one, but two of the most acclaimed (not to mention influential) films ever put to celluloid. For a time, THE GODFATHER was the highest grossing picture ever made, and remains the box office leader for 1972, winning Oscars for Best Picture, Best Actor (Marlon Brando), and Best Adapted Screenplay (for Puzo and Coppola). Featuring fantastic performances from a stellar ensemble, including Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, James Caan, John Cazale, Robert Duvall, Abe Vigoda, Talia Shire and more.

“One of Hollywood’s greatest critical and commercial successes, ‘The Godfather’ gets everything right; not only did the movie transcend expectations, it established new benchmarks for American cinema.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

“It’s a bloody good story, or a good bloody story and you can’t take that away from it. Puzo’s book hasn’t half its artifice and style.” (Guardian)

“‘The Godfather’ is the most memorable, most influential, most quoted, most beloved, most discussed, most imitated, most revered and most entertaining American movie ever made.” (Chicago Sun-Times)

“The Godfather shows that there is still life in the massive production engineering which made Hollywood studios the wonder of the entertainment world in their great days.” (London Evening Standard)
