U.S., 1943, 102 min, 35mm, Dir. Michael Curtiz, Rated PG, Warner Bros.
"The best Hollywood movie of all time." – Leonard Maltin
You must remember this: Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) fought with the Spanish loyalists and ran guns in Ethiopia before turning cynical; now he won't play the sap for anyone - especially Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), the gal who broke his heart. Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, Ilsa walks into Rick's Café Americain and Rick asks pianist Sam (Dooley Wilson) to play their song again: "You played it for her, you can play it for me." Arthur Edeson's chiaroscuro cinematography, Max Steiner's soaring score, Paul Henreid, Claude Rains, Marcel Dalio, Cuddles Sakall and the Sidney Greenstreet / Peter Lorre tandem under director Michael Curtiz's magic wand... they all get better and better, as time goes by.
CGAC pays tribute to Paul Henreid, one of the great leading men of Hollywood's Golden Era, with a one-time-only 35mm screening of his two most popular films - Now, Voyager and Casablanca - in the company of his daughter, Monika Henreid, who is working on a memoir and documentary titled Paul Henreid: Beyond Victor Laszlo.
A special reception with drinks and light fare takes place on Friday, October 21 at 8:00 pm with Monika Henreid in attendance.
A $25 series pass that grants admission to both Now, Voyager and Casablanca and the special reception. This pass is available for purchase online.
