On Saturday 17th November 2012 Kinostalgia celebrated the 70th anniversary of one of the world’s all-time favourite films ‘Casablanca’ with a vintage Moroccan party at Villa Neukölln.

Villa Neukölln, originally a cinema opened in 1918 under the name of Lichtspielhaus Wien-Berlin, was transformed into Rick’s Café Américain with “As Time Goes By” on the piano and Moroccan Tagine on the menu. A screening of ‘Casablanca’ was followed by a themed party with DJ Christopher Rose, playing an exclusive retro set inspired by the film. In keeping with the classic cinema theme, usherettes served treats and signature cocktails, which were prepared especially for the night. The audience went all out dressed in their their vintage finest, paying homage to the 1940s. There were white tuxes galore and a lot of style!

In ‘Casablanca’ Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) must find safe transport out of WWII Morocco for herself and her resistance leader husband Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid). With the Nazis hot on their trail, her only hope is old love, Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), an American expatriate and war profiteer who runs Rick’s Cafe.

Join in with the battle of the National anthems, quote along with some of the finest dialogue in movie history, and get swept up by the greatest romance of all time. An ageless film that gets better with every viewing, there is no better way to watch Casablanca than with a cocktail in our own version of Rick’s Bar. “Here’s looking at you, Kid.”
