This special screening is brought to you by QFT's Young Programmers and Cinemagic Young Programmers – a collective of youngsters who are passionate about creating unmissable events out of your favourite films.

All About Eve tells the story of Margo Channing, a revered leading lady who takes a shine to a bashful young fan. Her admirer, Eve Harrington, becomes her assistant, confidant and understudy before eventually revealing her true colours. 

Ultimately it’s a film about complex and ambitious women. With their Obsession centred on fame and success, it mirrors similar hang ups of new #selfie generation anxieties of today, making this film as fresh as ever. 

Expect the QFT foyer to be serving 1950s vibes, but without the cigarette smoke! This screening will feature a short interval.

100% on Rotten Tomatoes: “Smart, sophisticated, and devastatingly funny”
