    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.

    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.

    Pee-wee's Big Adventure

    (1985)

    Saturday September 27 at 7 pm

    Presented by the Psychotronic Film Society of Savannah and the Lucas Theatre

    Special Benefit for Ailing Local Musician Keith Kozel!

    “(This movie) revels in the weird, the unpredictable, the infantile and the absurd. Dazzling.”

    ~ Empire Magazine

    The Psychotronic Film Society of Savannah (repeatedly named Best Local Film Series in Connect Savannah’s Annual Readers Polls), in partnership with the Lucas proudly presents famed director Tim Burton’s feature film debut: the beloved, family-friendly comedy Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, starring Paul Reubens as the iconic, perpetually childlike Pee-wee Herman.

    An unexpected box-office smash when first released, this hilarious and head-scratchingly surreal motion picture has –in the intervening years– become a bona fide cult classic. Unfortunately, many people have never had the opportunity to see it as it was intended: on the big screen.

    Co-written by Reubens and the late, great Saturday Night Live star Phil Hartman, and boasting a score by the Oscar-nominated Danny Elfman, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure follows snarky, idiosyncratic man-child Pee-wee Herman on an epic, cross-country quest to find and rescue his most prized possession: his custom-made, fire engine-red bicycle. Along the way, he encounters an endless parade of oddball characters, visits the Alamo, and learns an awful lot about life, friendship, and love.

    Smart, silly, obnoxious, campy, and outrageously ridiculous, this film’s deserved success launched Tim Burton’s career, with the look and feel of Pee-wee’s Big Adventure leading directly to Burton’s later masterpieces Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Mars Attacks, and Ed Wood.

    This Special Screening is a Benefit for area musician, songwriter, new father, and longtime Vinnie Van Go-Go’s employee Keith Kozel (frontman for Savannah rock bands Superhorse and GAM), who, despite an extremely healthy lifestyle was diagnosed five years ago with Type 2 MPGN, a degenerative kidney disease. After a debilitating stroke and over 20 visits to both the Mayo Clinic and Emory Hospital, both of his kidneys are now in the final stages of failure. Keith has been forced to leave his job and now requires dialysis to survive.

    He is in desperate need of a kidney transplant, but insurance will only cover a tiny fraction of the approximately $350,000 required for such a procedure.

    This screening is the first in a series of public fundraisers for Keith, and a full 100% of all proceeds from both voluntary donations at the door –you may give whatever you can– and raffle tickets (for valuable items to be given away before the show) will go straight to his ongoing medical expenses.

    There will also be a Pee-wee Herman Look-alike Contest with our team of judges awarding prizes to three winners (adult male, adult female, and child under 12) with the best Pee-wee costume.

    Please make plans to attend this fun night of charity and laughter, and bring some friends. Help us pack the Lucas for Keith — a local original!

    Rated PG. 92 minutes.

    Admission is free, with a suggested voluntary donation of at least $5 for kids and $10 for adults — 100% of which goes directly to Keith’s medical fund.

    Not eligible for use with the Lucas Theatre Movie Pass.
