Railroad Square Closing Gala!
“Play it again, Sam.” Not that Bogart ever says that exact line, but he sure comes close, and we play it again here on the last night of Railroad Square’s current home, squaring a circle from opening night at our original building, where it was our opening film, and leading us into our new, stunning cinemas at the Paul J. Schupf Art Center in downtown Waterville, opening on Dec. 17. A true Hollywood classic that miraculously embodies and promotes the seeming best qualities of both Hollywood and the country itself in the midst of a cataclysmic world war, CASABLANCA is what it is because of its exotic locale and thriller/romance genre covering an idealistic heart; because of its magnetic stars, Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman; and because of its ingenious script, filled with one unforgettable line after another. We’ll always have CASABLANCA.
After the film, join us for a champagne toast as we begin the next chapter of the Maine Film Center. Cupcakes from The Bankery will also be served!
