Freeze Frame presents: Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)

Saturday 17th February 2018
Doors open 6.30pm / film & intro start at 8pm

If you have been watching the recent BBC programme ‘Feud’ then perhaps it’s time to see the original Joan and Bette in the film that brought the apparent enemies together on screen for the first time. Bette Davis plays the forgotten Shirley Temple- like child star ‘Baby Jane’ Hudson in truly disturbing fashion and Joan Crawford her sister the more level headed but wheelchair bound actress. Cooped-up in a house they share, Jane’s behaviour becomes increasingly controlling and erratic until a shocking climax.
Whether Bette and Joan’s dislike for each other was real, part of the Hollywood publicity machine or orchestrated by their producers and co-workers is hard to say. When they were both in their comparatively twilight years as actors they took a risk on a totally different genre from what made them famous and it paid off. It has long been considered a cult classic and now thanks to the above mentioned TV show I am sure we will see a resurgence in the popularity of the film and of both actresses.
Don’t hide behind your cushions – watch it on the big screen with us!

Join us in the Drill Hall for an informal evening of flickering images drawn from classic old favourites. Free popcorn and good company are guaranteed alongside the Cafe’s celluloid menu inspired by the films themselves! Come early to nab a comfy sofa and indulge in one of our movie meals. Or simply come for the film and enjoy a beverage, beer or a cinematic snack in a friendly environment.

£15 for a two course meal and film or come for popcorn and film only for £5.00
