"Play it again, Sam": BYU film series to screen "Casablanca" Jan. 13

The Special Collections Motion Picture Archive Film Series at Brigham Young University will open its seventh year by screening “Casablanca,” the classic movie starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, on Friday, Jan. 13, at 7 p.m. in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium on the first level.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free, but seating is limited. Children eight years and older are welcome. No food or drink is permitted in the auditorium.

A film that produced many memorable lines of dialogue, “Casablanca” attained fame when the Allied troops landed in the Moroccan city, making its name legendary. Casablanca also served as the site of war conferences involving Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin.

The wartime romantic drama follows Rick Blaine, an expatriate American saloon owner, and Ilsa, the woman who ran out on him but comes back into his life with her husband to obtain valuable exit visas to freedom that only Rick can get.

A top-ten pick of almost every list of all-time movie favorites, “Casablanca” received eight Academy Award nominations and won three for best picture, screenplay and director.

"This is a very rare opportunity to see this famous movie the way it was meant to be seen, on film and on the big screen," says James D'Arc, series director and curator of the BYU film archive.
