Inside Venetian Theatre & Bistro, a renovated, historical film house with sweeping red and black curtains and plush gold carpeting, a classic black-and-white talkie filled with Hollywood’s pioneering actors transports moviegoers into the dramatic past. Nominated for eight Academy Awards and the winner of three, including Best Picture, Casablanca illustrates the life of Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), a brooding club owner in unoccupied Africa during World War II, as he runs from a painful past, a love he can never forget, and the occasional lion. Rick’s isolated world is thrown into disarray when the woman from his memories appears before him, leading to a set of events that could be the start of something beautiful or the end of all that he’s worked for. Film patrons witness the wartime events unfold as they nibble on a large container overflowing with buttery popcorn. Because alcoholic beverages can be taken into the auditorium, guests must leave their children at home or on the sidewalk, as no one younger than 21 years old is allowed.
