Sunday, April 21 @ 6:30 p.m.
 Directed by Michael Curtiz 
Screenplay by Julius J. Epstein, Howard Koch, Philip G. Epstein
Based on the unpublished stage play Everybody Comes to Rick's by Murray Burnett and Joan Alison.
1 hr. 45 min.

Set during World War II, it focuses on an American expatriate torn between love and virtue. He must choose between his love for a woman and helping her Czech Resistance leader husband escape the Vichy-controlled Moroccan city of Casablanca to continue his fight against the Nazis.

Casablanca is a 1942 American romantic drama that starred Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, and Paul Henreid and featured Claude Rains, Conrad Veidt, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and Dooley Wilson.

Casablanca premiered on November 26, 1942 in New York City. The film was a solid if unspectacular success in its initial run, rushed into release to take advantage of the publicity from the Allied invasion of North Africa a few weeks earlier. Despite a changing assortment of screenwriters, and Bogart attempting his first romantic leading role, Casablanca won three Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Its lead character, memorable lines, and pervasive theme song, As Time Goes By, have all become iconic; and the film consistently ranks near the top of lists of the greatest films of all time.
