All About Eve
Joseph L. Mankiewicz, 1950


Many classic films are just as powerful today as when they were first released. We add such films from many genres to our schedule throughout the season. Many are shown on the occasion of their rereleases, in fresh, new or restored prints.

A virtual unknown when All About Eve was made, Monroe leaves a lasting impression during her brief screen time.

Anne Baxter plays Eve, a young fan of actress Margo Channing (Bette Davis) who manipulates her circle of friends in her drive to become Broadway's biggest star. Filled with memorable, sharp-witted dialogue, this quintessential tale of backstage rivalry won the Oscar for best picture. (138 mins., 35mm)
