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.
Film Fatale has been creating some of Ireland’s most unique events since 2011. Film Fatale began as a series of iconic vintage screenings in Dublin’s Sugar Club. We reinvented old-style Hollywood glamour with parties that fused classic cinema with vintage fashion, live music and cocktails. Film Fatale’s “Prohibition” at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham is now a thousand-person event and is one of Europe’s biggest 1920s parties. Be a part of the spectacle, we make you a part of the experience, not just a spectator.
Masquerade: The RDS Concert Hall, Dublin
Decadently elegant, Film Fatale returns with its most extravagant event yet: Masquerade at the RDS. A carnival of curiosities awaits you as Film Fatale brings to life the great masked balls of Vienna, Paris, St Petersburg and Venice. In the grand tradition of the Masquerade, don your masks and hide your beautiful faces among the dukes and duchesses, counts and courtesans.
Revel in the spectacle. Take delight among our porcelain-faced ballerinas, jesters, flying-swan princesses and troubadours, or Cancan with the Film Fatale Follies. In the grand concert hall, you can waltz to the strings of the La Fete Quartet or dance up a storm to Film Fatale’s Orchestra. The Brash Bass Band will raise the ornate roof. Then lose yourself in the music as Ireland’s best vintage DJs take to the stage.
Prohibition: Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Dublin
It’s the greatest party era in history and Film Fatale brings it to life in the majestic surroundings of The Royal Hospital Kilmainham. Our summer event — Prohibition: Gatsby’s Mansion — is an outdoor-indoor ritzy Roaring Twenties Vintage Party inspired by F Scott Fitzgerald’s novel. Our Halloween Prohibition event is a spooktacular parade of the beautiful and the damned. Prohibition is the cat’s meow of Dublin parties and one of Europe’s biggest 1920s events.
Film Fatale Screenings and Vintage Party
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.
