Our April installment of Odeum Classic Films features the classic Casablanca.
"Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine." Academy Award winners Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman light up the screen in one of the most enduring romances in movie history--Casablanca. Rick Blaine (Bogart--The African Queen, The Caine Mutiny) owns a nightclub in Vichy-controlled Casablanca, frequented by refugees desperate to escape German domination. Despite the ever-present human misery, Rick manages to remain uninvolved in World War II now raging across Europe and Northern Africa. But all that changes when Ilsa Lund (Bergman--Gaslight, Notorious) walks through the front door of Rick's club--Rick must now choose between a life with the woman he loves and becoming the hero that both she and the world need.
About Odeum Classic Films:
Starting in 1926 and for over 60 years, The Greenwich Theater (now the Greenwich Odeum) screened thousands of films. With the Odeum Classic Films series, only the very best of these movies return to the big screen! Curated by Steven Feinberg, Executive Director the Rhode Island Film & TV Office each month the series will feature at least one Odeum Classic Film (or double feature or marathon). Relive the experience of seeing these classics on the big screen, with a theater full of other lovers of great cinema. Steven Feinberg will often introduce the films and share a few words about what makes each of these films a Classic.
