The Godfather

WU Cinema Presents: The Godfather

50th Anniversary! See Coppola’s masterpiece in a newly crafted 50th anniversary 4K digital restoration, overseen by the director himself.

Director: Francis Ford Coppola
Runtime: 175 mins.
Format: 4K DCP

In celebration of The Godfather’s 50th anniversary, this new 4k restoration of Francis Ford Coppola’s epic masterpiece features Marlon Brando in his Oscar-winning role as the patriarch of the Corleone family. Oscar winner Coppola paints a chilling portrait of the Sicilian clan’s rise and near fall from power in America, masterfully balancing the story between the Corleone’s family life and the ugly crime business in which they are engaged. Based on Mario Puzo’s bestselling novel, and featuring career-making performances by Al Pacino, James Caan, Talia Shire, Diane Keaton, and Robert Duvall, this searing and brilliant film garnered ten Academy Award nominations and won three, including Best Picture.


“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
