Camp Midnight presents Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, the “National Sisters Day” event. Pre-show hosted by Dick O’Day. Featuring interactive audience guide, screening of film with LIVE commentary and sisters matching outfit contest. Raising funds for VITAL BRIDGES and the Queer Film Society
In this Grand Guignol chiller, Hudson sisters Jane (Bette Davis) and Blanche (Joan Crawford), both aging actresses, share a rotting Los Angeles mansion, where Jane, once a vaudeville headliner, remains lost in her deranged childhood fantasies. When a devastating car crash — blamed on a drunken Jane — leaves Blanche wheelchair-bound, her increasingly psychotic sister seizes the chance to settle a jealous score.
