Casablanca
Friday ONLY!  February 15
Starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid

 

For those wishing to extend their Valentine's holiday into the weekend, we offer one of the most popular romance/dramas ever created, returning this Hollywood classic to The Strand's 25' screen presented in 45 speaker surround-sound! 

 

Men and women alike can agree on this 1942 gem, starring legendary tough-guy Humphrey Bogart and incredible beauty Ingrid Bergman!  Casablanca is rated the #2 all-time best movie in America by the American Film Institute.

 

Whether you've seen it once or dozens of times, there no better way to enjoy it than in the up-close setting of The Strand!  Bogart plays a cynical nightclub owner who protects an old flame - and her husband - from Nazis in Morocco.

 

The famous quote that never was.  Almost everyone knows the phrase, "Play it again, Sam", even if they don't necesarrily know that they're referencing a scene from Casablanca.  But, in fact, this iconic quote never occurred.  When the despairing Rick tells piano player and confidante, Sam, to play the song that belonged to his lost love, Ilsa. and him, he says, "You played it for her, you can play it for me. If she can take it, I can take it so play it!". Ilsa says "Play it, Sam. Play 'As Time Goes By"'. The incorrect line has become the basis for spoofs in movies such as A Night in Casablanca (1946) and Play It Again, Sam (1972).

 

As Casablanca was filmed during World War II, many of the actors who played the Nazis were in fact German Jews who had escaped from Nazi Germany.  In addition, Rick's Cafe was one of the few original sets built for the film, the rest were all recycled from other Warner Brothers productions due to wartime restrictions on building supplies.
