Classic Movie Night – “Casablanca”

One of the great things about living in a larger town is that there is so much to do.  One of our favorite movie theaters shows classic movies on the big screen.  It’s a great way to see these films as original audiences saw them – how they really SHOULD be seen.

It’s also a great way to introduce these classics to a whole new generation of movie-goers.

Tonight, we’re taking Sarah and Rebecca to see “Casablanca“.  I don’t know how much Rebecca will like it, but Sarah seems really interested in seeing it.  We’re looking forward to dinner and a GREAT movie this evening – all these years later, “It’s still the same old story”:

Surprisingly, “Play it again, Sam” is NOT a line from this movie – everyone likes that quote better, though….

Round up the usual suspects
We’ll always have Paris
Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine
I’m shocked – shocked! – to find that gambling is going on in here
I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship
Here’s looking at you, kid

By tomorrow, Sarah will have seen all of those infamous quotes in context, and will probably be peppering her conversations with them not long afterward.

Who knows?  She may even go out and buy a trenchcoat and a fedora.

You’ve been warned…..
