Not to be confused with the bouffant haired songstress, Amy Grimehouse is a quirky film event that takes its inspiration from the flamboyant movie theatres of the 1920s.

Crawford and Davis

…an exciting blend of trash cinema spiced with live stage performance.

It will be an exciting blend of trash cinema spiced with live stage performance. On Friday 20th May London’s 229 The Venue will host a special night celebrating two of Hollywood’s most fierce and fabulous starlets, Joan Crawford and Bette Davis.

The ‘Whatever Happened to Mommie Dearest’ movie double bill will begin with the psychological thriller ‘Whatever Happened to Baby Jane’, where Crawford and Davis star together. It will be followed by the biographical film based on Joan Crawford’s life ‘Mommie Dearest’ starring Faye Dunaway.

Burlesque

If two top movies aren’t enough for you Amy Grimehouse will also add their own blend of miscreant performance to the proceedings. Guests will be entertained by live burlesque performances from Princess Knickers as Baby Jane Hudson and Holestar as Joan Crawford.
