Casablanca (1942|1943) is a romantic war-time drama directed by Michael Curtiz and starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, Claude Rains, Peter Lorre, and Sydney Greenstreet. Bogart plays Rick, the owner of an upscale nightclub in Casablanca in his first leading romantic role. The club's clientele includes those trying to head to the United States and escape the approaching war; and others attempting to stop them from doing so. Throw in an old flame and a love triangle and you have one of the most beloved movies of all time.
Casablanca was nominated for eight Oscars and won three including Best Picture for 1943. The movie has also ranked highly on several of the Top 100 lists compiled by the American Film Institute. It was #2 on the original 1998 Best American Movies of All Time list (it fell to #3 on the updated 2007 list). It is #2 on the top movie songs list for "As Time Goes By". It is ranked #1 on the list of top romantic films and being that it is one of the most quote (and mis-quoted) films of all time it haas the most entries on the list of Top 100 famous movie quotes with five entries.
As it may be difficult to meet on the main floor by the concession stand, I think we should meet on the second floor in the open area in front of the washrooms. To spot the organizer (mark) look for someone with black hair, white jeans and a blue and white messenger bag. Tickets can be purchased on line at bloorcinema.com ($1.50 surcharge per ticket) or at the door. Tickets are $11 each or $8 for members (no discounts for students or seniors).
If anybody wants to go out afterwards we can go to Pauper's across the street or Futures Bakery a block away.
