Chicago Film Critics Association members Mark Dujsik (of Mark Reviews Movies) and Nick Allen (of The Scorecard Review) will introduce the Saturday December 8 showing of “THE GODFATHER”.

“THE GODFATHER” digital 4K restoration

Widely regarded as an American classic, “THE GODFATHER” was not properly preserved. For decades, the original negative was used to create release prints causing considerable wear to the negative.  A print run in the 1980’s caused severe damage to the original IB Technicolor negative.  Recently, at the request of Francis Ford Coppola, film preservation expert Richard Harris spent a year digitally restoring “THE GODFATHER,"  which, according to cinematographer Gordon Willis, now looks as good as it did in 1972.

Muvico, in association with the Chicago Film Critics Assiciation, is proud to present a 40th anniversary screening of the 4K digital restoration of “THE GODFATHER” projected by Sony 4K digital (the digital equivalent of 70mm).
