With the Oscars fresh in everyone’s minds, AMC will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of an Academy classic – The Godfather – with back-to-back airings of the original Oscar-winning film and The Godfather: Part II all week long, beginning tonight.
AMC will air The Godfather on Monday and Wednesday at 8 p.m. and midnight (schedule accordingly, central-time zoners!), and The Godfather: Part II on Tuesday and Thursday at 8 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. The trilogy will then be aired in its entirety on Friday, March 2, from 9:30 a.m. through 10 p.m. The celebration culminates on Saturday with AMC’s premiere of the digitally-restored version of The Godfather Saga beginning at 10 a.m.
