This summer, we cool off in the Setzer Foundation Auditorium and celebrate the art of camp, with campy films that are exuberant, playful, dramatized, and hilarious (though not always intentionally).
Each presentation will begin with an introduction by local film lover and historian Jacob Greenberg and a campy short film showcasing some of the best (and weirdest) of underground cinema. The featured film for August is “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?” This twisted psychological thriller stars Bette Davis as a former child star living in her past and terrorizing her more successful but disabled sister (Joan Crawford). The short film “Helping Johnny Remember (Remix)” (Ashleigh Nankivells, 2010) will start the evening.
Tickets may be purchased online or at the Museum admission desk.
