Mildred Pierce at Coolidge Corner

1/29/2018 Coolidge Corner Theatre

In this noir classic and Academy Award-winning film, Mildred (Joan Crawford) is being interrogated by police over the death of her second husband, Monte Beragon. Throughout the film, flashbacks reveal the events leading up to his death as well as Mildred's relationship with her spoiled and social climbing daughter, Veda (Ann Blyth). An examination of successful and ambitious women, and how they survive, Mildred Pierce is still as relevant as ever.

After the film, join us for a special conversation with a special guest from the Huntington's production of Bad Dates.

Stage & Screen, a collaboration between Coolidge Corner Theatre and Huntington Theatre Company that explores the depictions of shared themes in Huntington productions and acclaimed films, announces four upcoming film screenings and post-screening conversations with Huntington artists and experts. Tickets to each screening are $13 ($11 for Coolidge members with member ID and Huntington Theatre Company subscribers with promo code) and may be purchased online at or at the Coolidge box office, located at 290 Harvard Street, Brookline.
