Odeon Cinema, Liverpool One

Odeon Liverpool One and Static Gallery are proud to present a unique screening of The Godfather on the 4th July, American Independence Day.

Tickets info: http://www.odeon.co.uk/films/the_godfather_q_amp_a_with_gianni_russo/15926/

To celebrate this special event, the film will be introduced by the one and only Gianni Russo who played Carlo Rizzi in the film. Gianni will then conduct a Question and Answer session after the film (Chaired by Nick Birkinshaw).

Gianni is in Liverpool ahead of his Frank Sinatra tribute performance at the Albert Dock on the 5th July to conclude the One Magnificent City Cunard celebrations: http://www.statictrading.com/?p=3226

Asked about his role in one of the greatest films ever made, Gianni states: “I do not know what my life would have been without The Godfather for the last four decades. That experience was my life changer. I am truly blessed, and I thank God for it everyday. I am really looking forward to coming to Liverpool and sharing my experiences of the film.”

As if having Godfather royalty to introduce the film and conduct a Q+A on the 4th July wasn’t enough, we are also offering everyone who buys a ticket for the screening of The Godfather a discount of £6.50 off the admission price for Gianni’s much anticipated Frank Sinatra concert at The Albert Dock on the following evening of the 5th July (Just bring your Odeon ticket to receive discount or reimbursement from Gianni Russo: One Night Only if you purchases tickets online but are attending both events).
