Casablanca

(1942) dir Michael Curtiz w/Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, Claude Rains, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, Conrad Veidt [102 min] Who knows if we’ll always have Paris, but hopefully we’ll always have this marvelous film to watch. CASABLANCA has a reputation for being swooningly romantic, and it certainly is, but it’s also wryly funny, somewhat cynical, and remarkably thrilling. Often imitated but never matched, CASABLANCA has a special recipe for success that includes a top-notch script, fantastic supporting players, and iconic star turns by two Hollywood legends.

It’s French Morocco during WWII and ex-pat bar owner Rick Blaine (Bogart) has found a comfortable if not lucrative niche under the watchful eye of the local Vichy authority, Captain Renault (Rains). That is, until he finds himself tangled in a web of emotion for lost love, Ilsa (Bergman), newly arrived in Casablanca with her husband, Victor Laszlo (Henreid), a Czech freedom fighter seeking safe passage to America – at any cost.

Don’t miss Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn in THE AFRICAN QUEEN, playing in a newly restored print June 24–30!
