Worlds collide for this confusing and spectacular event: ‘Casablanca’ will screen on Facebook Wednesday night at 7PM ET/ PT. Fans of romantic comedy or romance in general can watch a free screening of the timeless love story and comment in real time on the film’s Facebook page. We’ll take it!

Frequently cited as the best loved Hollywood film of all time, the 1944 Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman love story won the Best Picture Oscar. The screening celebrates the recent launch of Casablanca 70th Anniversary Blu-ray and DVD combo set as well as the digital publishing initiative “Inside the Script.” A series of e-books on classic cinematic treats such as “An American in Paris,” “North by Northwest,” and “Ben-Hur,” the project gives movie fans an innovative way to delve into their favorite films through rare materials and archival footage.
