We’ll Always Have Casablanca: The Life, Legend, and Afterlife of Hollywood's Most Beloved Movie 

Join us for this informative and entertaining evening in commemoration of the 75th anniversaries of the release of the film Casablanca and the founding of the Bronxville Adult School. Few films have inspired as much devotion in their viewers as Casablanca. With more revival screenings than any other film in the history of cinema and countless fans of all ages, who have returned to it dozens—even hundreds—of times, Casablanca remains as relevant as ever. Just in time for the film’s 75th anniversary, Noah Isenberg’s book We’ll Always Have Casablanca offers a fascinating exploration of the film’s resonance through popular and political culture over the decades. 

Author Noah Isenberg, director of screen studies at The New School, will thrill devotees of the film with anecdotes about the hilarious on-set hi-jinks, grudges, rewrites, and censorship that threatened to compromise the film’s iconic story.

Registration Required. Register here or call 914.793.4435.

For those who haven't seen Casablanca, or just want to see it again, please join us for the screening on 9/14 at Concordia College. Register here.
