Saturday 12th December
The Sugar Club, Dublin
Celebrate Christmas in vintage style on December 12 with Film Fatale’s screening of the heart-warming Christmas classic Shop Around The Corner.
This is Film Fatale’s last screening in The Sugar Club, as next year we will be moving to a new venue. So join us to celebrate five great years of classic movies, vintage fashion, retro music and good old-fashioned fun at The Sugar Club.
We all know that Jimmy Stewart is the star of It’s a Wonderful Life but it is Shop Around The Corner that makes him the ultimate romantic comedy hero and the King of Christmas. This is the most endearing Christmas classic and a film that you need to see. Set in a lovingly evoked Budapest in the run-up to Christmas, director Ernst Lubitsch’s deliciously delicate comedy focuses on the various obstacles blocking the path of potential lovers James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan, fellow workers in a gossip-ridden emporium who are unaware they’re in fact courting one another by mail in an anonymous correspondence. The director’s fabled ‘touch’, here at its lightest, contributes to what is arguably Hollywood’s most exquisitely romantic depiction of the old central Europe. A wonderfully nostalgic film that will warm your heart and set the tone for the Christmas holidays.
This glittering Christmas extravaganza has a dress code so get in the festive mood by dressing up your most dashing suit or glittering vintage Christmas ensemble and celebrate the silly season with live music from the jazz-tastic Jaime Nanci and The Blue Boys. They will play your Film Fatale favourites and modern songs with a vintage twist followed by the maestros of all that sounds retro chic, Film Fatale’s resident DJ’s The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers who will play your favourite dancefloor fillers from the 1920s to the 70s.
Deck the halls, rock around the Christmas tree and celebrate the festive season the good old fashioned way with Film Fatale’s last event at Dublin’s Sugar Club, a night of vintage fashion, retro music, Christmas cocktails and fun.
