"Here's lookin at you kid..." my favorite movie quote of all time.
Dreamy Humphrey Bogart
The lovely Ingrid Bergman
 Yesterday was the 70th anniversary of Casablanca, an iconic piece of art and quite possibly the most romantic movie ever made. To celebrate the anniversary, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) had a special 7pm screening at local theaters across the country to give people the opportunity to see this beautiful and timeless classic on the silver screen.

My grandmother mentioned that she would like to attend so we made a date out of it. And I am so glad we did. During the screening, the host of TCM took us behind the scenes of this epic love story showcasing stories from those who were on set and those who simply admire this timeless classic. 

Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman were just amazing. Their chemistry gave me goose bumps. At the risk sounding completely cheesy, they just don't make movies like they used to. It's magic in a bottle. Take a look at these highly quotable lines...

Casablanca is a classic tale of unrequited love and is a movie that defined the “golden age” of Hollywood. Last night, I fell in love with it all over again.

I love seeing classics on the big screen. It is a whole other experience. There is a tiny old fashioned cinema near us that is all done out in the original design and they only show old movies. I have seen Casablanca there and Singing in the Rain and several others. It is such a special experience.
