TCM to Give Away FREE Tickets to Casablanca

Here’s looking at you kid: As part of an ongoing 20th Anniversary Celebration for Turner Classic Movies (TCM), the cable channel has created a list of 20 cities that will be treated to a free theatrical screening of the 1942 classic, Casablanca on Tuesday, March 4th.

Presented in collaboration with Warner Bros., TCM's 20-market screening of Casablanca is one of many events surrounding the celebration of the network's 20th Anniversary. Although the screenings are free, tickets are required for entrance. Free tickets are now available for download from the TCM 20th Anniversary website.

Casablanca is Warner Bros.' Oscar®-winning wartime romance and widely regarded as one of Hollywood's greatest films. In Casablanca, Humphrey Bogart plays Rick, a nightclub owner who gets involved in smuggling refugees out of Vichy-controlled Casablanca. Ingrid Bergman is Ilsa, the woman he once lost and who is now seeking to escape the Nazis with her husband, Victor (Paul Henreid). And Claude Rains is the corrupt police inspector whose loyalties are hard to place.

Casablanca earned eight Academy Award® nominations, winning Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director (Michael Curtiz) and Best Screenplay (Julius J. Epstein, Philip G. Epstein and Howard Koch).

Each screening of the classic film will begin at 7:30 p.m. local time in all 20 cities. Seating is limited. Entry will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets do not guarantee entry. The following is the complete roster of theaters that will be showing the film:
