TCM, Fathom Events brings ‘All About Eve’ back to cinemas on March 5, March 8

Bette Davis stars as Margo Channing in the film that critic Roger Ebert called “her greatest role” – a Broadway star who is nearly undone by the treacherous Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) in All About Eve, from 20th Century Fox. Presented as part of the TCM Big Screen Classics series, All About Eve hits movie theaters nationwide for two days only on March 5 and 8.

Only two films, Titanic and this year’s La La Land, have received as many Oscar nominations as 1950’s All About Eve – whose 14 nominations led to six Academy Awards®, including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor (George Sanders).  Its director, Joseph L. Mankiewicz, was also honored with an Oscar for his masterful work, and his great-nephew, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) host Ben Mankiewicz, presents newly produced commentary before and after the feature.

Tickets for All About Eve can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in nearly 700 select movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

TCM Big Screen Classics: All About Eve (1950) Sunday, March 5, and Wednesday, March 8

Backstage backstabbing and treachery has never been as deliciously fun or as intensely dramatic as it is in All About Eve – which is tied only with Titanic for the most Academy Award® nominations for a single film. Director Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s black-and-white masterpiece also stars a young Marilyn Monroe in one of her first important roles. With a record-breaking four nominations in female acting categories (Bette Davis and Anne Baxter as Best Actress and Celeste Holm and Thelma Ritter as Best Supporting Actress), it remains one of the most riveting dramas ever made, a movie often imitated but never duplicated.
