 To honor the 92nd Academy Awards on February 9th, and to kick off the 2020 season we bring you the 1975 winner of this prestigious award, and one of the best films of all time back on the big screen with all the respect a film like this deserves.  

 

 The Godfather Part II is the continuing saga of the Corleone crime family that tells the story of a young Vito Corleone growing up in Sicily and in 1910s New York; and follows Michael Corleone in the 1950s as he attempts to expand the family business into Las Vegas, Hollywood and Cuba.  This film is produced and directed by Francis Ford Coppola from the screenplay co-written with Mario Puzo, starring Al Pacino and Robert De Niro . It is the second installment in The Godfather Trilogy and considered the best sequel every made . 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 Family, protecting the family business in the aftermath of an attempt on his life; the prequel covers the journey of his father, Vito Corleone (De Niro), from his Sicilian childhood to the founding of his family enterprise in New York City.

What's this Film Club all about?

  • The Lake Geneva Film Club was created for all movie lovers to experience their favorite films  (the right way) on the big screen. It’s amazing how in today’s world we may even see a movie for the first time on a 5” screen! That’s fine (I guess) but we are going to try and bring back the wonderful movie-going experience with some of the best films of all time and show them with all the respect they deserve... We have compiled some of our all time favorites from classics like Doctor Zhivago, North by Northwest, Psycho and Bridge on the River Kwai, to underground cult films such as Taxi Driver, Mad Max, A Clockwork Orange and everything in between. Anything that we feel is worthy of the movie theater experience will be considered and there won’t be any limits to what will be shown.  All movies will be viewed at the newly re-opened Geneva Theater - 244 Broad St. in downtown Lake Geneva. They have done an incredible job restoring this classic cinema that first opened in 1928. They also offer beer, wine and of course regular concessions to add to the experience. Once a month a new film will be shown and here’s the best part... We are a not for profit organization so all proceeds will be going directly to the Never Say Never Playland that is being built in Veterans Park. This park is being specifically made for children with special needs, and where everyone can play as equals...A simple $10 donation will get you your movie ticket but anything additional would be greatly appreciated. We feel this is such an incredible organization and we are so happy to donate to this special cause. Let’s get this park built! Visit www.NeverSayNeverPlayland.com for more info... 

  • Visit https://www.facebook.com/lakegenevafilmclub/ for all the film gossip and to stay informed on all the upcoming movies and events. We really hope everyone will enjoy this new addition to our great little city of Lake Geneva!
