Marlborough – The Friends of the Marlborough Public Library will continue their winter Classic Film Series with Casablanca Saturday, Feb. 18, and Citizen Kane Saturday, Feb. 25. Both film showing will start at 2 p.m. in the Bigelow Auditorium at Marlborough Public Library, 35 West Main St. at 2 p.m.
Casablanca is more than a tale of two men vying for the affection of the same woman, it is a story of political and romantic espionage set against a backdrop of war. Peggy Schwarz Ayres will introduce the Oscar-award winning film about love, war, and its unforeseen complications and lead a discussion after the movie ends. The film stars Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, and is rated PG.
The 1941 masterpiece Citizen Kane was directed, produced, and written (in part) by the film's star, Orson Welles. The film reveals the tragic story of how a millionaire newspaperman who made his reputation as the champion of the underprivileged becomes corrupted by a lust for wealth, power, and immortality. Lively discussion will follow the film.
