Although it’s the legendary film’s most legendary line, Humphrey Bogart never utters the words “Play it again, Sam” in Casablanca. The actual line is ”You played it for her, you can play it for me.” As for that requested song that Sam must play again and again for ex-lovers Rick (Bogart) and Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman)—it’s “As Time Goes By,” a song that encapsulates the movie with wistful, romantic perfection.

The scale of the story is small, but the emotions are epic: it’s 1941, and Rick Blaine is an American expatriate who runs a nightclub in the titular Moroccan city. And of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, his former flame Ilsa has to walk into his place. They’ve still got the old spark, but true love is hard to keep when the object of your affection is married to a leader of the Czech Resistance, you have to help her and her husband escape, and Nazis are on your tail. Winner of three Academy Awards and recipient of your granddad’s “They Don’t Make ‘Em Like This Anymore” statuette, 1942’s Casablanca is cinema from Hollywood’s Golden Era that still tops top-ten lists to this day. And for those catching their first Bogey flick, it could be the the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

The Earl Smith Strand Theatre

From 1935 to 1976, The Strand movie house stood as a marvel of modern technology. The Art Deco building boasted such amenities as air conditioning and heating and a fireproof projection booth, trimmings that made it one of the most up-to-date theaters in the region. But even these perks couldn't keep The Strand from eventually closing its doors in 2002. Luckily, concerned community leaders began the "Bring Back The Strand" campaign, launched an extensive renovation, and resurrected the historic venue as the Earl Smith Strand Theatre. Today, the sparkling space plays host to concerts, musicals, and theatrical productions, and nods to its cinematic beginnings by screening classic films with live organ accompaniment and carefully replicated popcorn.
