“Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night.” Film Fatale’s vintage cinema is back! Ladies, daub that scarlet lipstick. Men, don your mac and fedora. Get ready to immerse yourself in the world of musicals, femme fatales, detectives, starlets and heroes. Experience your favourite classic films the way they were meant to be seen on the big screen in their original setting — a vintage cinema set up with usherettes, original trailers and red carpets.
On Saturday the 22nd July, Film Fatale returns to Dublin’s Sugar Club with a screening of Bette Davis’ finest performance in the superb All About Eve. Davis shines in her greatest role as veteran actress Margo Channing whose hard-edged personality and experience goes up against the wiles of a younger actress — powerhouse versus ingenue, age versus beauty. Joseph L Mankiewicz’s Oscar-winning drama is one of the greatest films about Hollywood, women, acting, ageing and good old-fashioned rivalry.
The real fun begins when the closing credits roll. Stick around for the Fabulous Fifties Party, with live performances and Film Fatale’s resident DJs, The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers playing music from the film’s era. This is Ireland’s most glamorous film night so join us and help set the scene by dressing in your vintage finest, paying homage to 1950s glamour or emulating the characters from the film.
Make a trip to the cinema as magical as the movies on the screen. Fill yourself with popcorn and cocktails, watch a rip-roaring Hollywood rollercoaster of a drama and be transported back to the 1950s for a night of film, vintage fashion, dancing and good old-fashioned fun.
July 22nd 8pm-late
