We’ll dispense with the synopsis and say only that Casablanca is an undisputed masterpiece and perhaps Hollywood’s quintessential statement on love and romance, and at 75! has only improved with age, boasting career-defining performances from Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. Now is your chance to experience this icon of filmmaking on the big screen. Join us for this cinema event with door prizes including original art work by Matt Bassett, Casablanca poster, movie tickets and J signature cocktail. To help celebrate The Colonial’s Centennial Anniversary in 2015 we took the opportunity to revisit some great films that are also having important birthdays! We had such a good time with this series we thought we should continue.
