The movie Casablanca will be featured in the auditorium of the Luck Flanders Gambrell Center on Tuesday evening, Nov. 5, at 7 p.m. Throughout the 2013-2014 academic year, EGSC will feature outstanding movies to expand the mind and spotlight eight decades of classic cinema. Sponsored by the EGSC Vision Series, a privately funded initiative that seeks to bring programs of cultural and intellectual enrichment to East Georgia State College and its constituency, the presentation is free and open to the community.
Casablanca is a 1942 American romantic drama film, directed by Michael Curtiz, and based on Murray Burnett and Joan Alison’s un-produced stage play Everybody Comes to Rick’s. The film stars Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, and Paul Henreid, and features Claude Rains, Conrad Veidt, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and Dooley Wilson. Set during World War II, it focuses on a man torn between, in the words of one character, “love and virtue.” He must choose between his love for a woman and helping her Czech Resistance leader husband escape the Vichy-controlled Moroccan city of Casablanca to continue his fight against the Nazis.
The movie series provides an alternative learning style for both students and community guests. Each film is introduced with thought-provoking questions and ideas aimed at inspiring viewers to think critically and view the movie from differing perspectives.
The EGSC coffee shop, Common Grounds, will be open to service your favorite beverages. Popcorn and drinks are also available.
