Hi MIchael,

sounds like Woody Allen's "Play It Again, Sam" is what you are looking  
for. Not only is the movie screen a major part of protagonist Allan  
Felix's life (he's a film critic and therefore criticized and left by  
his wife, who accuses him of being - instead of a doer, a watcher) and  
the movie begins with the screening of "Casablanca," the blurring  
between reality and fiction becomes more and more complex as Felix  
begins to interact with Bogey in "real life"...
