Casablanca (film)

I only saw Casablanca for the first time a couple of years ago and it certainly is much funnier if you've already seen that Red Dwarf episode. Personally, I didn't really 'feel' the famous attraction between Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman but I know I'm in a minority there. Now, Seaford Community Cinema have chosen the classic film for a Saturday matinee screening at the end of October.

Originally released in 1942, Casablanca is based on a stage play, Everybody Comes To Rick's, written by Murray Burnett and Joan Alison. Burnett had made a trip around Europe in 1938 and been profoundly affected by the anti-Semitism they witnessed in Vienna. He also spotted the model for Sam in a nightclub in the south of France and his experiences led him to write his play.

Barn Theatre, Sat 26th Oct, 14:30.
Tickets £6, £5 members, £3.50 children under 15, available online, in person in advance from Seaford Tourist Office or, subject to availability, on the door.
