(102 min) Casablanca only improves with age.  This masterpiece from Hollywood’s Golden Age is perhaps the quintessential screen romance, boasting career-defining performances by Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, and the great Claude Rains.

Come 30mins early before either screening to enjoy music played on the historic Wurlitzer Organ by David Schroeder! Stay after the 7pm screening for a post-movie talk by local film critic Chuck Koplinski!

Join us one Saturday each month as we screen the most beloved classic films of all time. Virginia Theatre organist David Schroeder performs on the Virginia’s historic Wurlitzer Pipe Organ at most News- Gazette screenings, and film critic Chuck Koplinski leads discussions after all of our evening screenings. NEW this year: before each 7pm News-Gazette film, take a trip back in time with a short sing-a-long with David at the Wurlitzer and our historic glass slides as your guide! The Virginia Theatre houses one of the largest collections in the country of these unique glass slides, each set printed with the lyrics to a classic tune from days gone by. Warm up your pipes and bring the whole family!
