The Tryon Palace Classic Movie Series Presents: "Casablanca"

Wednesday, August 19, 2020 - 6:00pm


One of the most beloved American films, this captivating, wartime adventure of romance and intrigue from director Michael Curtiz defies standard categorization. Simply put, it is the story of Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), a world-weary ex-freedom fighter who runs a nightclub in Casablanca during the early part of WWII. Despite pressure from the local authorities, notably the crafty Capt. Renault (Claude Rains), Rick's café has become a haven for refugees looking to purchase illicit letters of transit which will allow them to escape to America. It’s here that the real adventure begins, when Rick runs into an old flame and is faced with the challenge of helping her and her husband flee the country.

Doors open at 5:30 pm. Run time is 1 hour 42 minutes.

Presented by Carolina East Health System.
