Film: Gaslight

June 8 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Reality and illusion blur in this shocking psychological thriller that tackles emotional abuse and first coined the term “gaslighting.”

Based on the Broadway hit play, “Angel Street,” GASLIGHT is a psychological, gothic-noir thriller that’s dripping in deception, self-doubt, hysteria, and abuse of power. It provides a cautionary tale of trusting and loving too much, too quickly, through the story of a whirlwind romance between a beautiful, aspiring singer named Paula (Ingrid Bergman in an Oscar-winning role) and her handsome but sinister husband Gregory (Charles Boyer in a shocking performance).

Soon after moving into her late aunt’s townhome, Bergman’s marriage to Boyer begins to fall apart. From misplaced items to ghostly footsteps to dimmed gaslights, Gregory blames a series of unexplained events on the sensitive Paula, convincing her that she’s losing her mind. But when she discovers he is not the man she thought he was, Paula fights back to prove her sanity and save her life.

Directed by the legendary George Cukor, GASLIGHT coined the term “gaslighting” and continues to drive conversation around mental health and emotional abuse.
