Details About the Film

Celebrate Ragtag Cinema's 23rd year with our annual Birthday Party. This year we're taking over an airplane hangar for a first class experience including a screening of CASABLANCA and the announcement of our 2023 CoMo Famous winner.

For your chance to attend, you must donate at least $10 online to any CoMo Famous contestant —once you've donated, you can RSVP here. Donations can be made using the link on each contestant’s page, by adding a donation onto your CoMo Famous screening ticket purchase or through our Donate page.

There will be live music from Tom Andes before the screening. Tom Andes is a Berklee School of Music graduate, Adjunct Professor of Jazz Piano at the University of Missouri, and resident pianist at the famed Murry’s Restaurant. His study under distinguished jazz masters and ear for classic pieces is evidenced through his brilliant display of both standards and original compositions.

CASABLANCA (Dir. Michael Curtiz)

"Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine…”

A weathered nightclub owner hiding out in Vichy-controlled Morocco has a run-in with an ex-flame and the Nazis pursuing her. A miracle of Hollywood’s Golden Age from cast to craft, Casablanca is an iconic and thrilling romantic epic littered with movie magic from everyone involved.
