All about Eve

When: Fri., Jan. 6, 7:30 p.m. 2017

If you want to just sit back and enjoy a classic film with live musical accompaniment, be warned—1950's All About Eve is an unnerving classic film. It portrays an excruciatingly gradual power shift from Broadway mainstay Bette Davis to her ingénue project, Anne Baxter, paced by director Joseph L. Mankiewicz to skin the nerves. And Mike Craver of the Red Clay Ramblers has fit music to plenty of Sam Shepard plays and movies that have left audiences feeling raw. He might be the perfect musician to tease more out of a movie that's already a psychological slide down a piano wire. Take it in with special cocktail treats as NCMA opens its Winter Film Series.—Chris Vitiello
