OTTAWA’S CINEMA FOR INTERNATIONAL AND INDEPENDENT MOVIES

COVID-19 Update

Well, it's officially official that, despite our best efforts, and (in our humble opinion) excellent safety measures, Stage 2 (modified) is upon us, and we will be closed from Saturday, October 10 for at least 28 days. All screenings scheduled for October are cancelled.

As soon as we have news about re-opening, we will announce it via Cinem@il (subscribe via our homepage) and on our social media channels (linked above).

Keep distancing, keep wearing your masks, keep washing your hands, and stay safe, so that we can all meet at the movies soon!

Poster for the Oscar-winning classic Casablanca

No one making Casablanca thought they were making a great movie. It was simply another Warner Bros. release. It was an ‘A list’ picture, to be sure (Bogart, Bergman and Paul Henreid were stars, and no better cast of supporting actors could have been assembled on the Warner’s lot). But it was made on a tight budget and released with small expectations. Everyone involved in the film had been, and would be, in many other films made under similar circumstances, and the greatness of Casablanca was largely the result of happy chance. 

Seeing the film over and over again, year after year, I find it never grows over-familiar. It plays like a favourite musical album; the more I know it, the more I like it.
