We want you to re-live the great parties of the past — to travel back in time to the decadent days of Gatsby, gangsters, flappers and Twenties glamour, to immerse yourself in the Dirty Thirties, to travel back to the Fabulous Forties, to swing-dance your way through the Rock & Rolling Fifties, to strut through the Swinging Sixties.

                                                                 Ich Liebe Dich Cabaret                                                                  Journey back to 1930s Berlin for cabaret in the truest sense of the word – tongue-in-cheek, provocative, hilarious and pure entertainment. Ich Liebe Dich Cabaret! is everything we love about cabaret with an added postmodern twist. Travel back in time to the heyday of the Berlin cabaret scene for an evening of classic cabaret, aerial dancing, traditional and avant garde burlesque and dance ensembles set to a soundtrack of hot jazz, cabaret solos and modern-era songs with a bygone-era twist. Ich Liebe Dich Cabaret! will be a decadent celebration of 1930s Berlin — the hedonistic era of dark glamour.

There will be terrible beauties and blood-soaked burlesque.

Ladies, daub that scarlet lipstick. Men, don your mac and fedora. Get ready to immerse yourself in the world of musicals, femme fataless, detectives, starlets and heroes as Film Fatale opens the doors of its vintage cinema. 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.

We make a trip to the cinema that little bit sexier — vintage tunes fill the air and cocktail glasses tinkle as we transport you back to Hollywood’s golden era. Film Fatale is a night of vintage glamour — a boutique cinema event where you dress to the nines, drink cocktails, watch your favourite classic films, then swing dance to live music from top vintage singers and jazz bands and do the conga to Film Fatale’s resident retro DJs, The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers. They will bring you on a journey through from the 1920s to the 70s with sets inspired by the film screening.
