Cemetery Cinema: Casablanca

Welcome back to Cemetery Cinema!

This Cemetery Cinema event is brought to you by Simmons Bank, Dillard Door, and Joe Spake/InCity Realty.

Our second film of our summer series is Casablanca (1942). It's the story of Rick Blaine, a cynical world-weary ex-patriate who runs a nightclub in Casablanca, Morocco during the early stages of WWII. Despite the pressure he constantly receives from the local authorities, Rick's cafe has become a kind of haven for refugees seeking to obtain illicit letters that will help them escape to America. But when Ilsa, a former lover of Rick's, and her husband, show up to his cafe one day, Rick faces a tough challenge which will bring up unforeseen complications, heartbreak and ultimately an excruciating decision to make.

Elmwood's Cemetery Cinema offers visitors a chance to enjoy the beauty of the cemetery with a fun, unique film series. Cemetery Cinema takes place as the final light of the day washes away. Our show times are based on the setting of the sun. Films are projected onto the roof of the historic Cottage, a National Register Landmark since 1978. All films are shown outdoors, so we encourage weather-appropriate attire. Guests should bring lawn chairs and coolers are welcome. Parking will take place outside of the cemetery on Dudley Street. Security will be made available on Dudley Street for the duration of these events.
