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. Many critics proclaimed the sequel was better than the first movie.

The movie depicts the early life and career of Vito Corleone in 1920s New York. And later, his son Michael expands and tightens his grip on the family crime syndicate.
