What more can be said about the Francis Ford Coppola’s 1972 screen classic? A film that regularly tops ‘best movies ever’ polls, today is a chance to relive the masterpiece with an added focus given to Nino Rota’s classic score.

Already a critical success The Godfather Live rolls into the London Palladium for a day of classic cinema celebration. Watching the film in all its glory with a 60-piece orchestra playing live beneath the screen in the majestic setting of London’s Palladium is a delight to be savoured. Today’s matinee performance is packed with a full spectrum of cinema buffs of all ages, brought together to spend three hours enjoying one of the greatest films ever made.

The rousing highs and lows of this live epic soundtrack heighten the emotions to degrees of cinematic ecstasy. A defining standard in cinema the soundtrack is a work of art that perfectly complements the cinematography but also stands alone as a musical document to a visionary composer.

Marlon Brando and Al Pacino reign supreme as they glide above this awe-inspiring musical backdrop that seems to improve with age. It was a hit then, it’s a hit now and it will be a hit when you go to see it too. A complete feast for the eyes and ears.
