FOG OVER FRISCO d. William Dieterle, 1934 celebrating Bette Davis, presented by Women & Cocaine at The Cinema Museum (30 JUL 19:30).

“There comes a time in every woman’s life when the only thing that helps is a glass of champagne” – Bette Davis.

“Hollywood legend Bette Davis plays spoiled high society bad girl, Arlene Bradford, in this rarely screened pre code classic. Arlene has little regards for the law, but things take a turn for the worse when she involves her sister in her shady and highly dangerous activities.

Come join us in this beautifully historic Grade II listed venue for an introduction, then screening of the film and exclusive raffle!” (Women & Cocaine)
