Encore Presentation of the classic drama CASABLANCA in select U.S. Locations
Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman light up the big screen once again for an encore showing of Casablanca 70th Anniversary Encore Event on Thursday, April 26 at 7:00 p.m. local time in select movie theaters. The initial Casablanca events were presented through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network in movie theaters on March 21 with many locations selling out across the country. Presented by NCM Fathom Events, Warner Home Video and Turner Classic Movies (TCM), this special encore presentation has been scheduled to meet the high demand from fans to see the exclusive big screen event.
Tickets for the Casablanca 70th Anniversary Encore Event are available at participating theater box offices and online at Fathom Events. For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the NCM Fathom website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
“Tens of thousands of fans nationwide celebrated the 70th anniversary of this beloved classic in local movie theaters, with the event becoming the top box office performer that night for many locations across the country,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president for NCM Fathom Events. “We’ve heard from many fans of this iconic film asking for another opportunity to enjoy it on the big screen, so we’re happy to be able to play it again on April 26.”
A pre-recorded introduction by TCM host Robert Osborne (need to make clear this is a produced introduction- check the original press release) kicks off the event with a discussion about Casablanca’s enduring legacy, revealing some of its fascinating behind-the-scenes stories.
One of the most romantic films in the history of cinema, Casablanca stars Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid. It won three Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay.
Warner Home Video recently released the Ultimate Collector’s 70th Anniversary Edition featuring a 3-Disc limited and numbered gift set including the re-mastered feature on both Blu-ray® and DVD with nearly 14 hours of bonus material. The keepsake box also includes a compilation of three comprehensive feature length documentaries, a hard-cover 62-page book with never-before-seen on-set photography, sketches and production history, a reproduction of the original 1942 French theatrical poster as well as a collectible set of drink coasters.
