The Luna Cinema At Kew Gardens: Casablanca
Play it again, Sam
It's summertime people and this could only mean one thing – all hail open air cinema. Al fresco screening magicians The Luna Cinema are here to turn your summer evenings into unforgettable memories. Taking over the best venues in the capital they put on movies that will make you laugh, cry, jump and scream. For this one, get ready for the 1942 classic, Casablanca. The word "classic" is thrown around fairly liberally these days. But, without any hyperbole, Casablanca has to go down as one of the all-time greats. Set in unoccupied Africa during the early days of World War II, an American expat meets his ex-lover with unforeseen complications. Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman play it out in one of the most famous on-screen pairings in film history. Beautifully romantic. "Crafted with the precision, detail and beauty of a Fabergé egg." – Times "Even hardened cynics who might be impelled to dismiss it as a collection of button-pushing clichés will most likely get swept up in the all the unabashed romance." – Little White Lies Certificate U. Runtime: 1 hour 38 minutes. Best available seating will be allocated on arrival.
"Still grippingly powerful."
