4Casablanca: One of the most-loved and most-lauded films in history, this undisputed masterpiece starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman cries out for a big-screen viewing.

5Go Skateboarding Day: Every year on June 21 (a week from today), skateboarders around the globe blow off all their other obligations to grab their boards and hit the bricks.
