Following the extraordinary success of sold out shows’ at London’s Royal Albert Hall, The Godfather Live, a celebration of the crime classic regularly cited as one of the greatest films ever made, returns for two special shows this September – 16th September at the Birmingham Symphony Hall and 17th September at the Manchester Bridgewater Hall produced by CineConcerts.

Francis Ford Coppola’s timeless masterpiece The Godfather, starring Marlon Brando and Al Pacino and winner of three Academy Awards, will be shown on the big screen whilst Nino Rota’s epic score is performed simultaneously by a live orchestra.

Rota achieved international acclaim in the 1950s and 1960s for his work with Italian directors scoring movies including White Nights, The Leopard and La Dolce Vita.

His music for The Godfather, including its immortal love theme, was ranked fifth in the influential American Film Institute’s list of the greatest scores ever written.

The Godfather, released in 1972 to popular and critical acclaim, tells the story of the Corleones and their rivalry with other New York crime families between 1945 and 1955, as the title character (Brando) hands over the reins of power to his youngest son (Pacino).

In 2008, an Empire magazine vote saw The Godfather named as the greatest film ever made, a distinction also awarded to the film by Entertainment Weekly and Metacritic. It came second in Sight & Sound’s 2002 list and Time Out’s 2003 readers’ poll, and is currently ranked at number two in IMDb’s all-time list.

Tickets priced at £47.50, £37.50
