‘Casablanca’ Hits the Big Screen

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fun and relaxing weekend. I know I did, especially since after finishing up a nice batch of class reading on Friday night, I didn't so much as even have to think about homework all weekend long. Instead, Stephen and I decided to spend our time outdoors enjoying the great weather, grabbing Chinese food with friends and catching up on a little leisurely reading.

Although the start of the week means that it's time to get back into my regular routine, the next few days are also shaping up pretty well so far, with our planned outing to see the DC cherry blossoms Tuesday evening and a sushi-making class lined up for next Saturday. Plus, in honor of Casablanca’s 70th anniversary this Wednesday, I'm incredibly excited that 500 theaters across the country are showing the movie on the big screen, including one right here in the DC area.

I don't know about the rest of you, but in my eyes, Casablanca is and probably always will be the best film of all-time. I love absolutely everything about this movie, from the finely tuned script to the remarkable cinematography to the impeccable acting by some of Hollywood’s greatest legends. So, as you can imagine, I snapped up my ticket weeks ago via Fandango, and Stephen and I are both excited to take a rare weeknight break to catch Bogart and Bergman in theaters.


I hope you all have a great day and a fabulous week ahead! Are you also planning to see Casablanca on the big screen? What’s your favorite movie of all-time?

  5. One of my favorites, for sure.

    Funny story: I was watching it in college once and when it got to the end my roommate, who was super smart engineer with no common sense, says "SO I don't get it, why did they have to fly to Portugal if they've been in France the entire time?"

    I about died laughing. She NEVER put it together.

  17. This is a fantastic movie, which such a perfect ending. Love, love, love it! Plus, all of the celebs seemed so much more glamorous back then.

    My favorite movie of all time...that is such a hard one. Probably The Princess Bride.
