GSU to Host Free Screening Q&A with Francis Ford Coppola

Francis Ford Coppola, the celebrated director of films such as Apocalypse Now and The Godfather trilogy, will screen a documentary that explores the inspirations and obstacles of his filmmaking career at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 10 at the Rialto Center for the Arts. After the screening of the hour-long documentary, titled CODA: Thirty Years Later, Coppola will hold a question and answer session.

Admission to the event will be ticketed but free, and guests are asked to be at the Rialto Theater no later than 7:15 p.m. to take their seats on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Rialto is an 833-seat performing arts venue located at 80 Forsyth St., in the heart of the Fairlie-Poplar district in downtown Atlanta.

Tickets are available at the Rialto Theater box office and at the department of communication on the 10th floor of 1 Park Place South. Please get your tickets soon if you plan to attend this event.

As an added bonus, the intriguing documentary about Coppola's problem-plagued making of Apocalypse Now will be screened prior to May 10 at Cinefest. Please check their programming for exact schedules.
