  • Godfather I Web

    The Godfather Part I

    (1972)

    Friday September 5 at 7 pm

    Presented by Lucas Theatre

    The Godfather is a 1972 American crime film directed by Francis Ford Coppola, and produced by Albert S. Ruddy from a screenplay by Mario Puzo and Coppola.

    The film stars Marlon Brando and Al Pacino as the leaders of a fictional New York crime family. The story, spanning the years 1945-55, centers on the transformation of Michael Corleone from reluctant family outsider to ruthless Mafia boss while also chronicling the family under the patriarch Vito Corleone.

    Based on Puzo’s best-selling novel of the same name, The Godfather is widely regarded as one of the greatest films in world cinema—and as one of the most influential, especially in the gangster genre. Now ranked as the second greatest film in American cinema (behind Citizen Kane) by the American Film Institute, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry in 1990.

    Rated R. 175 minutes.

    Tickets are $8 general admission or $5 student/senior/military.  Also eligible for use with the Lucas Theatre Movie Pass. Available online or by calling 912-525-5050.

    Don’t miss Happy Half Hour before each of our movies. From 6-6:30 enjoy half price beer and popcorn specials.

  • Godfather II Web 2

    The Godfather Part II

    (1974)

    Saturday September 6 at 7 pm

    Presented by Lucas Theatre

    The Godfather Part II is a 1974 American crime epic produced and directed by Francis Ford Coppola, and starring Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, and Robert De Niro. Partially based on Puzo’s 1969 novel The Godfather, the film is both sequel and prequel to The Godfather, presenting parallel dramas: one picks up the 1958 story of Michael Corleone (Pacino), the new Don of the Corleone crime family, protecting his family business ventures in the aftermath of an attempt on his life; the prequel covers the journey of his father, Vito Corleone (De Niro), from his harrowing childhood escape from Sicily in 1901 to the desperate founding of his family enterprise in New York City.

    The film was released in 1974 to great critical acclaim, some deeming it superior to the original. Nominated for eleven Academy Awards and the first sequel to win for Best Picture, its six Oscars included Best Director for Coppola, Best Supporting Actor for De Niro, and Best Adapted Screenplay for Coppola and Puzo.

    Rated R. 200 minutes.

    Tickets are $8 general admission or $5 student/senior/military.  Also eligible for use with the Lucas Theatre Movie Pass. Available online or by calling 912-525-5050.

    An Evening with Lee Child

    Thursday September 11 at 6 pm

    Presented by Savannah Book Festival

    The world could use a hero right now. Jack Reacher is on his way.

    Playboy magazine calls Jack Reacher, the hero of bestselling author Lee Child’s 18 thrillers, “one part Shane, one part Phillip Marlowe, and one part Rambo—if Rambo were liberal.” In Reacher, a drifting ex-military police officer with a noble sense of justice, the British-born Child has drawn a complex character with mad sleuthing skills and a quick draw. Since his debut in 1997, Child has more than 60 million copies of his books in print, and they have been translated into more than 40 languages. In his latest book, Personal, which goes on sale September 2, Reacher tracks down the person who shot at the French President. Now, the Savannah Book Festival brings Lee Child to Georgia’s First City for the first time.

    Tickets are $15, and are available online or by calling 912-525-5050.

    Keb' Mo'

    Saturday November 15 at 8 pm

    Presented by AEG Live

    Keb’ Mo’ is a three–time Grammy Award winner for Best Contemporary Blues Album, and a key figure in the acclaimed 2003 PBS series “Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues.” Selling over two million records, Keb’ has performed at the White House, shared the stage with Blues and Rock legends, played at President Obama’s Inaugural Ball, and continued to master his skills as a guitarist, singer, writer, and producer.
    His familiar and distinctive guitar sound can be heard in a variety of television and film projects including: Memphis Beat, Mike and Molly, Tin Cup, and One Fine Day.

    In recent years, he has started a new family and moved from Los Angeles to Nashville.

    “It was really a family move, not a business move. But there were benefits attached to it – more space, for one thing. In my house here, I have a whole production facility with a studio, a lounge, lodging, even parking. It feels much more expansive.”

    “The talent pool of musicians here is amazing. Nashville is a smaller town [than L.A.] so there may be fewer players, but with a very high concentration of quality musicians.”

    2013 sees Keb’ involved with a variety of projects including: developing other artists, helping grow the popularity of the blues, enjoying his family, and taking part in the community.

    Tickets range from $36.75 to $46.75, and include a Lucas Theatre Operation and Preservation Fee of $1 per ticket. Tickets are available online, or by calling 912-525-5050.
