Breakfast and a Movie

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 15 – Get breakfast tickets by Thursday, October 12
Breakfast at 10:30AM, movie starts at 11AM – Tickets here!

Did you see the FX miniseries Feud this past spring? If you did you don’t want to miss a chance to see this classic on the big screen. And even if you didn’t see Feud, you’ll love watching Bette Davis and Joan Crawford chew up the scenery like two feral cats.

In a tale that almost redefines sibling rivalry, faded actresses Blanche (Crawford) and ‘Baby’ Jane Hudson (Davis) live together in near seclusion in a decaying mansion. 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 have any contact with her. As Jane slowly loses her mind, she torments her sister going to ever-greater extremes.

Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 92 percent, saying: “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? combines powerhouse acting, rich atmosphere, and absorbing melodrama in service of a taut thriller with thought-provoking subtext.”
