Three Romantic Classics to Be Screened at Liberty Hall in February
First, on Thursday, Feb. 2 at 7 p.m., Liberty Hall will show Sleepless in Seattle, starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. After his wife Maggie passes away, Sam Baldwin and his 8-year-old son Jonah relocate from Chicago to Seattle to escape the grief associated with Maggie's death. Jonah misses his mother, but he also wants to see his father learn to love again. Pushed by his son, Sam pours his heart out to the radio waves on Christmas Eve, becoming a hit with women listening. This ’93 classic shows how some people are simply destined to be together.
Next, on Thursday, Feb. 9 at 7 p.m., Liberty Hall presents the 1957 classic film, An Affair to Remember, starring Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant. One of the most romantic movies ever made, "An Affair to Remember" is the story of handsome playboy Nicky Ferrante and beautiful night club singer Terry McKay who meet by accident while on a cruise from Europe to New York. Despite being engaged to other people, both agree to reunite at the top of the Empire State Building in six months if they still feel the same way. However, an unfortunate accident keeps Terry from the reunion, and Nicky is left wondering if her feelings for him are gone. Will he discover the truth behind her absence and reunite with his one true love, or has fate and destiny passed them by?
Romance month ends on Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. with one of the Liberty’s most popular classic movies, Casablanca. Humphrey Bogart plays Rick Blaine, an exiled American and former freedom fighter, who runs the most popular nightspot in town. The cynical Blaine comes into the possession of two valuable letters of transit. When Nazi Major Strasser arrives in Casablanca, the overly attentive police Captain Renault does what he can to please him, including detaining Czech underground leader Victor Laszlo. Much to Rick's surprise, Lazslo arrives with Rick's one-time love, Ilsa, played by Ingrid Bergman. Rick is very bitter towards Ilsa, who he believes ran out on him in Paris, until he learns she had good reason. They make a plan to run off together using the letters of transit, until the unexpected happens.
