‘The Godfather’
8 p.m. Thursday. Cinemagic, 779 Portland Road, Saco, $8.75. cinemagicmovies.com
We’re gonna make you an offer you can’t refuse! In 1972, the Francis Ford Coppola crime drama “The Godfather” was released, starring Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton and several others. Here’s a chance to see the Oscar-winning chronicles of the Corleone family back on the big screen as part of the Saco Cinemagic Cult Classic movie series. Have some hot popcorn while you watch, but keep in mind that revenge is a dish best served cold.
