If you attended The Godfather on Classic Movie Night on July 14, then don’t miss the Friday, July 21 showing of The Godfather Part II. The 1974 film directed and produced by Francis Ford Coppola is both the sequel and prequel to The Godfather and keeps most of the same cast including Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton and Robert De Niro.
