Prohibition: The Beautiful and the Damned October 29th

beautiful-and-the-damned-poster-final

This Halloween, Prohibition: the Beautiful and the Damned at IMMA brings you the 1920s you know and love with a taste of the Underworld — a night of gothic glamour, strange curiosities, the bewitching and the bizarre.

Embrace the darker side of the Twenties at Ireland’s most elegantly decadent Halloween celebration. The juice-joints will be serving blood-red bathtub gin punch. The fiendish fan dancers and frightful flappers will haunt the stage for the Dance Macabre show.

Try our new Guys and Ghouls 1920s speed dating. Or dance for your soul to live ragtime and old-meets-new Twenties fusion, the Monster Mash, and vintage and electro-swing DJs.

In our Parlour room, Film Fatale in association with Bram Stoker Festival, will enthrall and excite with ghastly tales and gothic performances.

This is a vintage-themed event and strictly fancy-dress. We want you to flaunt your inner fiendish flapper or gangster, or pay homage to Twenties horror and silent movies. However you come, we want you to look frightfully good. This is, after all, a night of unspeakable glamour.

Film Fatale’s Fifth Birthday: Swing Time and The Golden Era of Hollywood Party

SWING TIME

Over 30 classic movies, 10,000 vintage songs, 100 conga lines, 20,000 cocktails, 8,000 pearl necklaces, 3,000 bow-ties and thousands of glamorous guys and gals in their vintage finest. Since its inception, Film Fatale has been bringing to life the great parties of the past and now we are celebrating our fifth birthday.

To celebrate our fifth birthday, Film Fatale will host a birthday extravaganza in one of Dublin city’s most exquisite locations, the opulent and classic Banking Hall of the Westin Hotel, with a red-carpet screening of the timelessly stylish Fred and Ginger rom-com/musical Swing Time.

This red-carpet event will be a love-letter to the entire golden era of Hollywood, celebrating the 1920s to the 1950s. Dress-code is strictly evening attire, so don your most dashing suit, or come along in your most glittering ensemble, as we want you to pay homage to your favourite Golden Era stars.

The event will feature live music from the Film Fatale house band The Tin Pan Alleycats, live dance performances, while Film Fatale’s retro-chic DJs, The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers, will play all your favorite songs that have set the dance floor on fire over the past five years.

Swing Time is the perfect film to celebrate Film Fatale’s fifth birthday. Hollywood’s iconic dancing duo Fred and Ginger were the embodiment of early Hollywood glamour and Swing Time is one of their most beloved pairings.

When bandleader Astaire gets cold feet on his wedding day, bride-to-be Betty Furness will give him a second chance, providing he proves himself responsible enough to earn $25,000. Astaire naturally tries to avoid earning that amount once he falls in love with dance instructor Ginger Rogers. Numerous complications, laughs and dance routines ensue along with Fred and Ginger’s grace, humour and some of cinemas most famous dances and scores “The Way You Look Tonight,” “Never Gonna Dance” and “Bojangles of Harlem.”

Join us in celebrating five fabulous years by watching the silver screen’s most enchanting couple before following in their footsteps and dancing the night away at our most glamorous party yet.

Film Fatale presents: Prohibition

500X500 PROHIBITION

Saturday 14th March

IMMA, The Royal Hospital Kilmainham

Irelands biggest Prohibition Party is back, this time even bigger and better.

Join us on 14 March for an alternative St Patrick’s Weekend party, as Film Fatale returns the Prohibition-era experience to Dublin’s IMMA for a party that will relive the decadent days of Gatsby, gangsters, flappers and 1920s glamour.

Dublin’s IMMA will be transformed once more into an opulent 1920s fancy-dress party, the kind of elegant yet wild soire that would do Jay Gatsby proud. It will be even bigger as we open up more secret rooms, more bars, more performers, a silent cinema and more sparkle, glitz and glamour.

Inside the majestic doors of IMMA, there will gambling gangsters, fast-footed dancing flappers in sparkling ensembles, exotic fan dancers, and people Lindy Hopping to our 1920s ragtime bands The Ragtime Ramblers and The Great Gatsbies. Meanwhile, you can do the Charleston to retro DJs The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers or dance your socks off to an Electro-swing set by DJ Mimi Rouge.

There will be one room dedicated solely to 1920s and 1930s Prohibition era, the music it has inspired and dance-your-socks off electro swing. IMMA’s gothic chapel will become the Punch Parlour, a perfect place to drink prohibition-era “bathtub gin” and dance to your favourite vintage hits from the 1920s to the 70s.

Show your moxy through the rags you wear and set the scene by dressing up in your vintage finest or pay homage to 1920s silent movie stars, dames and fellas, flappers and philosophers, or gangsters and their molls.

Tell your friends, people you like but trust but no one else — this event is on the QT so shhh! Keep your trap shut, don’t wear iron and no funny business or we’ll all end up under glass. It’s gonna be swell kid!

Tickets €30

Film Fatale presents: Prohibition Halloween Party IMMA

PROHIBITION 500x500

Friday  31st October
IMMA

Step back in time and party like it’s 1929 as Film Fatale transport you back to the decadent days of Gatsby, gangsters, flappers and 1920s glamour.

Hidden away from the prying eyes of the fuzz, there’s a hopping joint full of the sweetest looking dames and the hardest trouble boys, a prohibition night that will evoke the mood of a 1920s speakeasy for you to drink your bootlegged hooch and celebrate this hedonistic era with wanton abandonment.

This Halloween, Film Fatale brings you the Prohibition-era experience. Dublin’s IMMA will be transformed into an opulent 1920s Halloween fancy-dress party, the kind of elegant yet wild soire that would do Jay Gatsby proud.

Inside the majestic doors of IMMA, there will be fast-footed dancing flappers in sparkling ensembles, exotic fan dancers, people Lindy Hopping to our 1920s ragtime band or doing the charleston to retro DJs The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers.

There will be one room dedicated solely to 1920s and 1930s Prohibition era, the music it has inspired and dance-your-socks off electro swing. IMMA’s gothic chapel will become the Punch Parlour, a perfect place to do the monster mash, or dance to your favourite vintage hits from the 20s to the 70s.

Drink prohibition-era “bathtub gin” punch, listen to cabaret and have your photo taken at the silent film photo booth. There might even be some saucy burlesque and some “gambling”. There ain’t no rules in this joint.

Show your moxy through the rags you wear and set the scene by dressing up in your vintage finest or pay homage to 1920s silent movie stars, dames and fellas, flappers and philosophers, or gangsters and their molls. This is a Halloween fancydress event but the dress code is vintage inspired.

Tell your friends, people you like but trust but no one else —this event is on the QT so shhh! Keep your trap shut, don’t wear iron and no funny business or we’ll all end up under glass.

It’s gonna be swell kid!
