Experience the greatest films from Hollywood’s Golden Age back on the big screen, every week at The Loft Cinema!
Iconic. Extraordinary. Unforgettable. And even as time goes by, Casablanca remains one of the greatest classics of Hollywood’s Golden Age. It could’ve been just another average wartime studio picture—no one was expecting a great movie. But luckily for everyone, destiny intervened with story, lighting, music, and the unparalleled acting chops of Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman coming together with gloriously perfect precision and unparalleled craftsmanship. There’s a lot more that could be said about cynical, heartbroken American expatriate Rick Blaine (an exceptionally world-weary Bogart) and Ilsa (a never-more-luminous Bergman), the mysterious woman who walks into his Moroccan gin joint from out of the past and insinuates her way back into his life, but it all comes down to this: If you miss this opportunity to see Casablanca on the big screen, you’ll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life. Winner of three Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and featuring a stellar line-up of supporting actors, including Claude Rains, Peter Lorre, Sydney Greenstreet and Conrad Veidt, Casablanca is a cinematic treasure that can be watched and enjoyed again and again. (Dir. by Michael Curtiz, 1942, USA, 102 mins., Rated PG)
