Whatever Happened to Baby Jane 

End of year party and fundraiser 

Wednesday 27th December 2017 at 6.00pm

Café-bar opens at 5.00pm ★ Free! ★ Donations encouraged


2 Dugard Way, Renfrew Road, London SE11, (10 minutes walk from Elephant and Castle

This month VITO is going to be a little bit special. We will be celebrating our third year, the holiday season and the end of the year all rolled into one with a screening of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, a 1962 American psychological thriller–horror film produced and directed by Robert Aldrich, starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, about an ageing former actress who holds her paraplegic sister captive in an old Hollywood mansion. Exceptionally, we will not be having a discussion post-screening, instead, we are hoping you all stay afterwards and enjoy the party!

This is a free event but this Christmas we particularly need your donations on the night to help save the Cinema Museum and ensure the continuation of VITO project. After 19 years in residence at this wonderful historic venue, the future of the Cinema Museum is now under threat since their landlords have put the building and the surrounding site up for sale. So PLEASE DIG DEEP and give us a paper donation if you are able to. 

You can also support the museum by signing the online petition HERE.

If you cannot attend the fundraiser, you can make an online donation on the Museum's Just Giving page HERE.

Tell your friends and come and celebrate the end of the year and our third year of screenings with us and see how much we can raise...

Doors to the cafe/bar will open at 5pm for a 6pm screening. Come early to secure a seat as it can get very busy and we do not take bookings. 
The doors to the Cinema will be shut once the film starts or capacity is reached.

Venue accessibility: Level access on the ground floor. Level access on the first floor except for a slight slope at the doors into the main hall where people exit the lift. There is a lift used by disabled /non-disabled visitors and volunteers. There is an accessible toilet with step free access on the ground floor. It is large enough for a motorised wheelchair. It has an easy lock and handrails. 

The project is endorsed by BFI Flare: London LGBT film festival, 56 Dean St, QX Magazine, Gay’s the Word, ACT UP London, Gay Mates, a Change of Scene, the Cara Trust, I-Base, UK-CAB, Positively UK, Gaydio, NAZ Project, Frank Byrne & his walkers  and Broad Appeal Podcast.
