Jennifer Connolly and David Bowie in Labyrinth (1986)

The Cinema Bar by Citylights will this evening be screening three films from different decades.

The evening begins with Labyrinth (1986) which will be screened at 6pm. The musical adventure follows teenage Sarah (Jennifer Connelly), who journeys through a maze to recover her baby brother (Toby Froud) from a goblin king (David Bowie).

Whatever Happened to Baby Jane (1962) will be shown next, starting at 9pm. Jane Hudson (Bette Davis) is an ageing child star left to care for her wheelchair-bound sister Blanche (Joan Crawford), also a former child actress. Stuck living together in a mansion in old Hollywood, Blanche plots to get even with Jane for the car crash that left her crippled years earlier. But Jane is desperate to keep Blanche imprisoned as she plans a new rise to fame and tries to hide Blanche’s existence from doctors, visitors and neighbours while she devises a way to get rid of her sister.

Rebel Without a Cause (1955) will be the final film screened at midnight. After moving to a new town, troublemaking teen Jim Stark (James Dean) is supposed to have a clean slate, although being the new kid in town brings its own problems. While searching for some stability, Stark forms a bond with a disturbed classmate, Plato (Sal Mineo), and falls for local girl Judy (Natalie Wood). However, Judy is the girlfriend of neighbourhood tough guy Buzz (Corey Allen). When Buzz violently confronts Jim and challenges him to a drag race, the new kid’s real troubles begin.

The screenings will take place today at Citylights Bar, St John Street, Valletta, starting at 6pm.
