Article by Adam Mast
Massive summer tent pole releases got you down? Are you interested in a big screen alternative to the onslaught of Hollywood blockbusters filling your multiplexes this summer? If so, then Fathom Events has got you covered.
Fathom Events prides itself on the best in counter programming. In addition to music and sporting events, Fathom also brings classic movies of the past and special anniversary screenings back to a theatrical setting where they are best appreciated. Recent titles have included THE SHINING, THE FIFTH ELEMENT, HALLOWEEN, TAXI DRIVER, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, and FANTASIA.
Up next, one of the great motion pictures of all time…
Hot on the heals of an epic screening and an unforgettable cast & crew Q&A at the Tribecca Film Festival, THE GODFATHER returns to the big screen for 4 exclusive showings only; Sunday, June 4th at 2 PM and 7 PM, and Wednesday, June 7th at 2 PM and 7 PM.
This iconic film about a New York mafia family’s rise to power in the years following World War II stars Marlon Brando as the family’s patriarch, Don Corleone, and features career-making performances by Al Pacino, James Caan and Robert Duvall. Based on Mario Puzo’s best-selling novel, this searing and brilliant film garnered seven Academy Award® nominations and won three, including Best Picture of 1972.
Not that you need an extra incentive to see this undeniable classic but this special 45th anniversary presentation will also include an introduction and brief commentary by TCM host, Ben Mankiewicz.
If for whatever reason you’ve never seen THE GODFATHER before, now’s your chance to experience it the way it was meant to be experienced. If you have seen it, now’s your chance to see it on the big screen again!
