Description: The Arclight Cinemas presents a Halloween night screening of prodcuer-director Robert Aldrich’s 1962 classic, starring Bette David and Joan Crawford. The film tells the story of Jane Hudson, an aging child star caring for her sister Blanche, also a former child actress. Blanche wants to get even with Jane for the car crash that left her crippled; however, Jane keeps Blanche imprisoned while plotting a new rise to fame. Part melodrama and part horror film, WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE’s hot-house dementia steers into “horror of personality” territory,  with stylistic flourishes reminiscent of PSYCHO. Running Time: 134 min.
