Hopewell Theater Hosts Special Valentine's Screening of "Casablanca" With Supper

originally published: 01/10/2019

Hopewell Theater Hosts Special Valentine's Screening of "Casablanca" With Supper(HOPEWELL, NJ) -- Hopewell Theater will host a special “date night” celebration of Valentine’s Day with a screening of the classic romance film Casablanca paired with an optional Moroccan supper on Valentine's Day, Thursday, February 14. An undisputed masterpiece and perhaps Hollywood's quintessential statement on love and romance, Casablanca has only improved with age, boasting career-defining performances from Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.

One of the most beloved American films, this captivating wartime adventure of romance and intrigue from director Michael Curtiz defies standard categorization. Simply put, it is the story of Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), a world-weary ex-freedom fighter who runs a nightclub in Casablanca during the early part of WWII. Despite pressure from the local authorities, notably the crafty Capt. Renault (Claude Rains), Rick's café has become a haven for refugees looking to purchase illicit letters of transit, which will allow them to escape to America.

One day, to Rick's great surprise, he is approached by the famed rebel Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid) and his wife, Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman), Rick's true love who deserted him when the Nazis invaded Paris. She still wants Victor to escape to America, but now that she's renewed her love for Rick, she wants to stay behind in Casablanca. "You must do the thinking for both of us," she says to Rick. He does, and his plan brings the story to its satisfyingly logical, if not entirely happy, conclusion.

Hopewell Theater is taking reservations for its optional supper club on February 14 at 6:00pm, prior to the 8:00pm film screening of Casablanca.

An afternoon matinee of CASABLANCA will also be shown on Saturday, February 16 at 2:15pm. Matinee tickets are $6 plus tax at the box office and are available online. Additional fees apply to online and phone orders.
