Robert Aldrich 101
United States | 1962 | Robert Aldrich
Bette Davis and Joan Crawford revived their flagging careers with this grotesquely funny horror hit that launched a new sub-genre of “granny” Guignol. The two stars play sisters, both former actresses and longtime bitter rivals who never enjoyed success at the same time. Now retired, they share a Hollywood mansion. One of them is a paraplegic, the other a deranged alcoholic, so their lifelong game of cat and mouse continues—with higher stakes than ever before! DCP. 133 min.
Special event pricing $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.
