Bogie & Bergman in one of the most beloved romantic films of all times
Last Remaining Seats: Casablanca (1942)Saban Theatre (8440 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills, CA) Map it $20
One of the most awaited events of the year for lovers of Los Angeles’ historic vintage movie palaces and classic film, the LA Conservancy’s Last Remaining Seats series, now in its 27th year, returns. If you’ve never seen "Casablanca," or even if you have, there may be no better time to see it for the first time (or again) than June 29, when the classic 1942 love story/wartime drama screens at 2pm and 8pm at the beautiful 1930 Art Deco Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills. This timeless tale is one of the most beloved of all time due to character actors as talented and charismatic as its leads, Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman; impeccable dialogue and cinematography; the mesmerizing chemistry between Bogart and Bergman; the film’s smoky, danger-heavy atmosphere; and the battle between love and self-sacrifice. As if all that wasn’t enticement enough, the 8pm screening is hosted by film authority Alan K. Rode of the Film Noir Foundation, while the 2pm screening is hosted by John Rabe of KPCC’s "Off-Ramp."
