Casablanca Signals the Start of Theater Openings
Movie theaters are opening again slowly but surely across the U.S., all with new policies in place for limited seating and other restrictions to guard against the transmission of COVID-19. Among the first classic films to appear on the big screen during this transition phase is also, smartly, among the most beloved by fans: 1942's Casablanca, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.
Flashback Cinema has released the Michael Curtiz-directed drama at a variety of cinemas around the U.S. — though you may have to do a little digging to discern whether you can view it at a local theater that offers the Flashback schedule. Theater openings in some cities remain delayed as individual states continue to battle COVID statistics, so while a theater may be listed on the Flashback schedule, clicking through to that venue may reveal that it has not yet opened.
But if you're eager for an in-theater experience again, you couldn't ask for a better choice than this World War II romantic drama and Best Picture Oscar winner, with iconic performances from Bogart, Bergman, Paul Henreid and Claude Rains, as well as costumes by Orry-Kelly. Mask up, socially distance and enjoy this favorite while supporting a theater in your neighborhood; the full Flashback schedule can be found here, or check out Screen Chic's roundup.
