Liberty Hall presents Casablanca for Valentine’s Day
Tyler, Texas (CIty of Tyler) — The City of Tyler’s Liberty Hall will show the 1942 classic film “Casablanca” for Valentine’s Day on Friday, February 14 at 8:00 p.m.
In World War II Casablanca, Humphrey Bogart plays Rick Blaine, an exiled American and former freedom fighter, who runs the most popular nightspot in town. The cynical Blaine comes into the possession of two valuable letters of transit. When Nazi Major Strasser arrives in Casablanca, the overly attentive police Captain Renault does what he can to please him, including detaining Czech underground leader Victor Laszlo. Much to Rick's surprise, Lazslo arrives with Rick's one-time love, Ilsa, played by Ingrid Bergman. Rick is very bitter towards Ilsa, who he believes ran out on him in Paris, until he learns she had good reason. They make a plan to run off together using the letters of transit, until the unexpected happens.
Tickets are $8, the doors open at 7:00 p.m., and the movie starts at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are available online at www.LibertyTyler.com or at the door one hour prior to the show if available.
