The program will begin at 7 pm. Shaun Henisey, president of the Bartlesville Film Society, will introduce Casablanca and guide a discussion of the movie after the screening. A raffle for prizes will also be held.

The Heritage Theater and Art Pub will supply food and beverage service.

Admission is free for everyone, however, the Bartlesville Film Society will accept donations.

The Heritage Theater is located at 306 East Don Tyler Avenue in Dewey, Oklahoma.

Parking is available on the street in front of the Heritage Theater.

The Bartlesville Film Society is dedicated to bringing both classic and new films to the Bartlesville, Oklahoma, area. They hold free screenings every month during their active season. More information about the Society is available on their Facebook page.

In the pages of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre (2005), Stephen D. Youngkin discusses the making of Casablanca, a film Peter Lorre considered unimportant – but which led to a contract with Warner Bros. and the most productive period of his professional career, with movies, radio, and stage work.

The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre is available for the Kindle and Nook, as well as hard-back and soft-bound editions.
