Casablanca Van Nuys Filming Locations Then and Now
Where was Casablanca filmed?
Most of the film was shot on a sound stage located at Warner Bros. in Burbank, California.
The hanger that was used in the scene of the arrival of Captain Strasser (played by Conrad Veidt) was physically located on Waterman Drive inside the Van Nuys Airport until a few years ago where it was moved to it’s permanent home.
