Invite a special someone to the perfect Valentine’s Day movie on the big screen – or introduce a neophyte to a classic American film that celebrates integrity, decency and sacrifice. In a world threatened by fascism, an apolitical American emigre (Humphrey Bogart) runs Rick’s Cafe in North Africa. Although he is unfazed by his customers (partisans, Nazis, refugees, swindlers and more), Rick’s cool is shaken when the woman who walked out on him in Paris (a luminous Ingrid Bergman) appears in his cafe. 112 min.
Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay. “Casablanca can be seen as a fresh wave of hope, and a belief that if you strive for something meaningful, everyone’s participation can make a difference.” Jeremiah Kip, Slant Magazine.
