ALL ABOUT EVE AT THE CINEMA MUSEUM
Vito Project film – Wed 27th, Exploding Cinema – Sat 30th and Gazon Maudit – Thu 31st
All About Eve Wed May 27 19:30
ReShape and the Cinema Museum have launched the VITO Project, a series of free monthly screenings bringing generations of LGBTs together to watch films and share ideas. This month’s film is All About Eve (1950), written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, and starring Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders and, in an early role, Marilyn Monroe.
Bette Davis plays Margo Channing, an aging Broadway star, and Anne Baxter Eve Harrington, who insinuates herself into Channing’s life, ultimately threatening both her career and her personal relationships.
The film will be followed by an open discussion. This is a free event, but donations to the Museum will be welcome
Exploding Cinema at the Cinema Museum Sat May 30 19:30
London’s longest running film club presents a night of the latest short films: narrative, documentary, experimental, underground and all sorts of weird and wonderful. Expect the eclectic from the group that started in 1991 and still remains the go-to night for your window seat on the underground.
Exploding Cinema is a collective of London based independent film fanatics who, in addition to screening open-access film shows, typically bring about fifteen projectors to a room and coat the walls and ceiling with myriad psychedelic image mashups. With live music from Sci-Fi folk polymath Babar Luck.
Doors open at 18.30 for a 19.30 start. Refreshments will be available in our licensed café/bar.
