IMDb: Casablanca

The Regal Cinemas theater at Aliante Station is giving a four-week tryout to a weekly program of classic films, the highlight of which is this week’s showing of Casablanca. Everyone’s heard of the Humphrey Bogart-Ingrid Bergman classic, and is probably familiar with its numerous quotable lines (“Here’s looking at you, kid”; “I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship”; “We’ll always have Paris”; etc.), but that’s no substitute for watching the film itself. It’s a movie about people lost in the margins of World War II that came out before the war was even over; it’s a showcase for the quintessential world-weary Bogart cynic; and it’s a serious examination of moral obligations and the perils of neutrality. Plus it’s damn entertaining, and a rare treat to see on the big screen.
