Le Comptoir presents: Casablanca

We partner with Rise restaurant Le Comptoir for a night of Moroccan magic in honour of Casablanca

Showing Times

Sun 10 Jun 19:15

"Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world..."  It’s 75 years since the beloved film Casablanca was first shown.  It was the height of sophistication then, sweeping the decks at the 1942 Oscar awards, and its lustre hasn’t dimmed down the years.  In honour of this anniversary, we've teamed up with popular local Le Comptoir restaurant to provide an exotic Moroccan themed pop-up film and food event. 

On arrival guests will find the Lexi magically transformed:  flickering lanterns, andalous music and a belly dancer will set the mood. Guests will be offered a range of tagine-inspired mezze, followed by variations on Moroccan mixed grill as entrée.  Vegetarian and vegan alternatives will be available, and the meal will finish with a variety of tempting North African biscuits and sweet treats.  Our theme carries through to the bar, with distinguished Moroccan wine and popular Casablanca beer available.  We will also be offering gin and rosehip cocktails, using London produced Sacred Gin.  

After the meal, the Lexi returns to what it does best – being a bijoux cinema – and we will screen Casablanca.  The LA Times recently suggested that its enduring popularity is down to the fact that “it has a near-perfect entertainment balance of comedy, romance, and suspense.”  We agree!

Tickets for this are £35, covering the film and a 3 course meal, all taking place in a transformed Lexi.  The evening begins at 7:15, and the film will be at 8:30.  The event will finish at 10:15.
