    About the film: Through ground breaking computer restoration technology, filmmaker Peter Jackson's team creates a moving real-to-life depiction of the WWI, as never seen before in restored, vivid colorizing & retiming of the film frames, in order to honor those who fought and more accurately depict this historical moment in world history.

    Please note:  This film is rated R for disturbing war images.

    The Footcandle Film Society continues it's "Classics at the Drendel" series, highlighting the American Film Institute's top films of all time, with CASABLANCA (1942) on Sunday, March 31st at 2:00pm at the Drendel Auditorium at the SALT Block.

    About the film: The story of Rick Blaine, a cynical world-weary ex-patriate who runs a nightclub in Casablanca, Morocco during the early stages of WWII. Despite the pressure he constantly receives from the local authorities, Rick's cafe has become a kind of haven for refugees seeking to obtain illicit letters that will help them escape to America. But when Ilsa, a former lover of Rick's, and her husband, show up to his cafe one day, Rick faces a tough challenge which will bring up unforeseen complications, heartbreak and ultimately an excruciating decision to make.

    Tickets are $5.00 for everyone and can be purchased at the event with cash or credit/debit cards.  (Please note: This film series is not included as part of regular Footcandle membership so members would still need to purchase tickets.)
