Pauline Kael New Yorker It's far from a great film, but it has a special appealingly schlocky romanticism, and you're never really pressed to take its melodramatic twists and turns seriously. Jul 28, 2022 Full Review Manny Farber The New Republic Casablanca is as ineffectual as a Collier’s short story, but with one thing and another -- like Bergman, Veidt and Humphrey Bogart -- it is a pleasure of sorts. Feb 18, 2022 Full Review Marjory Adams Boston Globe It is excitingly acted, smartly directed, and tells a story crammed with suspense, characterization and action. The cast of players is enough to fill the theatre alone, for it includes some of the finest players Hollywood has to boast about. Feb 10, 2021 Full Review Mark Johnson Awards Daily With an incredibly gripping narrative, filled with unforgettable characters and endlessly quotable dialogue, Casablanca is a heart-wrenching and inspiring tale of sacrifice, love, integrity, and the power of patriotism. The greatest movie ever made. Jun 8, 2023 Full Review Zita Short InSession Film Casablanca is best enjoyed for its production values... Feb 9, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Rick and Ilsa. Laszlo and the letters of transit. Captain Renault and his charming corruptibility. "As Time Goes By." "Here's looking at you, kid." You know the routine. So round up the usual accolades for one of the greatest films ever made. Rated: 4/4 Nov 12, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

Brendan It's Casablanca. You know, the film with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Berman that's considered one of the best films of all time? Do I really need to say a lot more? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/17/24 Full Review Neal It was a great story and a lot of fun getting to see a classic film at the theatre. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/24 Full Review Keith Casablanca is the definition of a classic Hollywood film. One of the greatest films ever. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/24 Full Review Pam W Despite the movie being 80+ years old, the love story is timeless. It was my husband's favorite movie and the first romantic movie he took me to see (two nights in a row), in 1979. My husband is in heaven now, so my oldest son took me to see it tonight. Everyone who has ever been in love, or hopes to be, needs to see this film. 3 3 3 3 3 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/24 Full Review William S One of the greatest movies of all time! Loved seeing it on the big screen! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/24 Full Review KLD This movie holds up well! Its always been my moms favorite movie & this is the first time she was able to view it on the big screen! She was thrilled! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/24 Full Review Read all reviews
