FLASHBACK CINEMA: One that They Don't Make Anymore

FLASHBACK CINEMA: One that They Don't Make Anymore

Negate the stash of memorable quotes. They do not make movies like "Casablanca" anymore, but Sunday and Wednesday , Nov. 13 and 16, @ 3:30 & 7 p.m. you can watch the magnetic screen pairing of  Bogie and Bergman .  

Set at an African crossroads prior to the full thrust of WW II unveiled, Casablanca directed by Michael "Curtiz's  is a classic for a reason -- it's crafted with the precision, detail and beauty of a Fabergé egg; the dialogue is hauntingly memorable and, in Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, it has one of the most magnetic screen pairings in history," wrote Wendy Ide in the UK Times.

The ambiguity of character motives fuels sexual and dramatic tensions just like "As Time Goes By" ignite musical memories including "It Had to be You" and "The Very Thought of You."

Filled with well positioned stereotypes, "Casablanca" has been still dubbed the best film of all time wrapping a "political allegory,"  and tones of sacrifice with "we will always have Paris" melodrama and intrigue.

"Casablanca" plays again on the giant screen Sunday Nov. 13 and Wednesday Nov. 16 at 3:30 and 7 p.m. at select Marquee Cinemas.
