What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)

Starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford

Join us on the Middle Floor of Wharf Chambers on Wednesday 1 September 2021 to watch a seminal horror/thriller that features two LEGENDARY actresses at the top of their game.

"The ultimate camp-Gothic bitchfight. Vastly entertaining." Daily Telegraph (UK)

"A lurid melodrama of hate, revenge and murder, a high-class horror film, in the Hitchcock vein, with virtuoso performances from Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, and moments both searing and poignant." Hollywood Reporter

"The on-screen fireworks were reportedly fuelled by off-screen hatred, but the chemistry between the stars is unquestionably hair-raising and upped the Gothic stakes to camp shock levels." Radio Times

Doors at 7pm; Film starts at 7.10pm; Event finishes 9.45pm

There will be drinks available downstairs at the Wharf Chambers Bar. The screening will have a half-time interval. Unfortunately the venue is not wheelchair accessible.
