Kick back and enjoy a spooky edition of Movies at the MAH with a screening of What Ever Happened To Baby Jane, presented in partnership with Westside Video and The Diversity Center.

Through the Fall we will be screening films that inspire and help us grow through this moment together. To celebrate October being LGBTQ History Month we’ve teamed up with Westside Video and The Diversity Center to present What Ever Happened To Baby Jane. Starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, this 1962 psychological horror/thriller is considered a cult classic and started a whole new subgenre within queer cinema. So grab a drink or snack at the Market and join us in Abbot Square!

What Ever Happened To Baby Jane

In a tale that almost redefines sibling rivalry, faded actresses Blanche and 'Baby' Jane Hudson live together. Jane was by far the most famous when she performed with their father in vaudeville but as they got older, it was Blanche who became the finer actress, which Jane still resents. Blanche is now confined to a wheelchair and Jane is firmly in control. As time goes by, Jane exercises greater and greater control over her sister, intercepting her letters and ensuring that few if anyone from the outside has any contact with her. As Jane slowly loses her mind, she torments her sister going to ever greater extremes.
