CHICAGO – Are you a movie buff that considers Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather” to be one of greatest movie ever made?

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the classic film, Cinemark and Paramount have teamed up to bring the restored version of “The Godfather” to 55 theaters throughout the country on Thursday, March 1, including one theater right here in Chicago. Locally, the film will play at the Cinemark Century Evanston 18 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
What’s more is Cinemark also plans to show “The Godfather Part II” in theaters on Thursday, April 19. In the span of a month and a half, you can see two Best Picture winners and two of the greatest films ever made on the big screen. Sounds like an offer you can’t refuse.
