Turner Classic Movies will present free screenings of Casablanca in 20 cities next month.
The vintage film network has selected 10 cities to screen the 1942 Warner Bros.-Oscar-winning wartime romance, starring stars Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, Claude Rains, Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre: Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, Atlanta, Detroit, Seattle, Miami, Denver and Washington, D.C.
To pick the remaining 10, TCM is inviting fans to cast their votes at tcm/com/20 before Feb. 10. Free tickets will be available for download from the TCM 20th Anniversary website on Feb. 18, the same day the 10 additional markets will be announced.
"As we celebrate TCM's 20th Anniversary, we want to take the opportunity to show our immense appreciation for our community of fans, without whom we wouldn't be here" said Dennis Adamovich, senior vice president of digital, affiliate, lifestyle and enterprise commerce for TCM, TBS and TNT. "One of the ways we're thanking TCM fans is by giving them the chance to see one of the greatest screen romances of all time, the one-and-only Casablanca. It's our way of saying to TCM fans, 'Here's looking at you.'"
