Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. TCM is bringing mega classic “Casablanca” to theaters for free (!) screenings in 20 select cities on Tuesday, March 4.
Ten of the cities have already been selected: Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, Atlanta, Detroit, Seattle, Miami, Denver and Washington, D.C.
In selecting the other 10 cities, TCM wants fans to cast their votes for where they'd like to see the movie screened. You can vote here.
The “Casablanca” screenings are part of TCM’s 20th anniversary.While the screenings are free, tickets are required for entrance. Free tickets will be available for download from the TCM 20th Anniversary website on February 18, the same day the 10 additional screening cities will be announced.
