Future Cinema, the geniuses behind Secret Cinema, present a night at Rick’s Café Américain in the vivid world of 1940s Casablanca. The night was a spectacular success, gloating a swingin’ band, glamorous singers and, of course, piano-playing Sam and chess-playing Rick. Future Cinema successfully managed to fuse cinema and theatre in one astounding re-enactment of the one of the greatest films of all time. Gentlemen, pop your collars. Ladies, fans at the ready, as Rick welcomes you into the most famous and exclusive nightclub in all of Casablanca.
