Join us in Tangier, our Moroccan-inspired underground lounge, Sunday, February 17 at 6 p.m. for a special free screening of Casablanca (1942). The movie will be played “on loop” until 10pm and guests are invited to enjoy dinner or a drink at Bar Figueroa before or after the movie.
Based on Everybody Comes to Rick’s, an unproduced stage play by Murray Burnett and Joan Alison, Casablanca is a story of espionage, betrayal, and romance starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. Rick Blaine (Bogart) owns a nightclub and gambling den in Casablanca, catering to a varied clientele of Vichy French fighters, German officials, refugees, and the occasional criminal. But Rick’s world is set to turn upside down when Ugarte, a petty criminal, leaves an incredible treasure in his hands and Ilsa Lund (Bergman), his former lover, appears out of the blue with her husband in tow.
