(Forecourt event: 7PM, 25 cent ticket “THE GODFATHER” screening at 8PM)


The 25 cent screening is part of Grauman’s ongoing 85th anniversary celebration, when tickets cost a quarter.  


“It was clear, even when the movie opened in 1972, that Coppola had created a landmark in American cinema. It remains the high point of his career,” wrote The San Francisco Chronicle.


“What we couldn’t see then was how wide the film’s influence would spread. There’s barely a gangster movie, a family epic or a movie about Italian Americans that doesn’t inevitably use “The Godfather” as a frame of reference. It’s more than a standard-bearer for critics and filmmakers — it’s a monument.”
