By From page A9 | February 05, 2014

The “Davis Classic Film Festival” continues Sunday with “All About Eve” from 1950. This film stars Bette Davis and George Sanders, and is a classic drama directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and produced by Daryl F. Zanuck. It was nominated for a remarkable 14 Academy Award categories, and won in six, including best picture.

“All About Eve” will be shown on the big screen at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. in downtown Davis. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and the film will be preceded by a brief introduction by Derrick Bang, The Davis Enterprise’s film critic. Bang will be available to answer questions and discuss the film with viewers who wish to stay.

Admission is free, but the Odd Fellows suggest a donation of $5 per person. Candy, popcorn and soft drinks will be available for sale. All proceeds, after expenses, will benefit the film programs at Davis and Da Vinci high schools.

The series concludes with “The Apartment” on Feb. 16. The 1960 comedy-drama stars Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine and Fred MacMurray.
