Film Fatale, Dublin’s most original and fun-filled night out, for lovers of film and all things vintage

On Saturday the 9th June, Film Fatale will screen cinema legends, Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart in the hilarious comedy of manners The Philadelphia Story in The Sugar Club, Dublin. This screening of George Cukor’s sophisticated screwball comedy will be followed by a 1940s swing dance.

 

The Film Fatale audience will be treated to a performance from  The Bugle Babes — Ireland’s own version of the 1940s chart toppers the Andrews Sisters. Followed by resident DJs, The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers who will have the dance floor swinging and jiving to 40’s, 50’s, big band, jazz and other retro gems.

 

The greatest screwball comedy of the 1940s, The Philadelphia Story is a tale of sex, class, bad manners and media intrusion. It features Katherine Hepburn who plays a socialite divorcée caught between flawed ex-husband Cary Grant and a respectable but somehow unsuitable fiancé (John Howard). Throw disgruntled novelist-reporter Jimmy Stewart and his colleague and special lady-friend (Ruth Hussey) into the mix, add a few too many bottles of champagne on the eve of the wedding and you have the makings of a great comic calamity.

 

This night of cinema nostalgia and old–style Hollywood sophistication will transport the audience back to the golden age of 1940s Hollywood for a night of film, vintage fashion, dancing and good old-fashioned fun.

  1. Apart from being made in the 1940s what’s the Andrews Sisters got to do with this movie? Will there be a David Bowie tribute act performing at a screening of 2001?
