Sometimes love brings lives and families that are eventually destroyed. The question is, why do we go through it all? What do we really think about the person we are dating?

Review by KELLY DOEJSI

"Here's looking at you, kid." "We'll always have Paris." "Round up the usual suspects." "Of all the gin joints in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine." "Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

Moviegoers will have a chance to see "Casablanca" again or for the first time at 6:30 p.m.
