Join me for a super fun evening - Bette Davis in one of her best, All About Eve, at the Paramount Theatre in downtown Oakland. Showtime is at 8pm. Let's meet in front of the theatre at the box office at 7:15pm so we can all sit together. This will sell out so please be on time so we can get seats.
If you haven't been to the Paramount Theatre you're in for a treat! The theatre is an Art Deco feast for the eyes...and All About Eve is a cult classic not to be missed.
ALL ABOUT EVE (1950) - "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night." And one of the best nights you'll ever spend at a Paramount Movie Classics screening! Written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, this is easily the most masterful critique of show business ever seen on the silver screen. Broadway star Margo Channing (Bette Davis) takes in an ardent fan (Ann Baxter) only to discover she's an aspiring actress with designs on Margo's stardom, roles, friends - and life. Watching from the sidelines is the venomous theatre critic (George Sanders) who takes delight in watching an epic battle unfold between the aging mentor and her young protegee. Superb dialogue, unforgettable characters, and stunning performances all combined to garner All About Eve a record 14 Oscar nominations and the Academy Award for Best Picture.
A nightcap (cocktail or decaf latte) at Duende afterwards.
Street parking and there are two lots around the corner. 19th Street Bart is also nearby.
