Classic Movie Corner: Casablanca

Ready for a movie of mystery and intrigue?  Then check out our special showing of Casablanca (1942):


Based on Everybody Comes to Rick's, an unproduced stage play by Murray Burnett and Joan Alison, Casablanca is a story of espionage, betrayal, and romance starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.  Rick Blaine (Bogart) owns a nightclub and gambling den in Casablanca, catering to a varied clientele of Vichy French fighters, German officials, refugees, and the occasional criminal.  But Rick's world is set to turn upside down when Ugarte, a petty criminal, leaves an incredible treasure in his hands and Ilsa Lund (Bergman), his former lover, appears out of the blue with her husband in tow.

Our movie presentation begins tonight at 5:30 p.m. in the J. Henry Kegley Meeting Room, so don't be late!  Popcorn and water will be provided for movie attendees.

Not rated.  102 minutes.
