A screening of Billy Wilder’s Sunset Boulevard will be followed by a 1950s noir-themed party mirroring the style of the film with live performance from Miss Truly DiVine, who will be singing sultry soulful songs of the fifties, and Film Fatale’s resident DJs, The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers, who will be playing music from the era with a sexy noir twist.
The audience is invited to help set the scene by dressing up as femme fatales and detectives, in their vintage finest, paying homage to 1950s noir style or mirroring the characters from the film.
Sunset Boulevard Wilder’s classic noir, is both a stunning satire on Hollywood and dark brew of lust and larceny. It stars William Holden and Gloria Swanson as a struggling screenwriter and a long forgotten silent film star. Framed in flashback, William Holden’s Joe Gillis narrates the story of how he becomes forgotten film star Norma Desmond’s kept man, how she draws him into her fantasy world where she makes her triumphant return to the screen with him by her side and the events leading up to his own murder.
Sit back in the sumptuous surroundings of the Sugar Club, enjoy a classic signature cocktail designed especially for the night, have the Film Fatale usherettes serve you popcorn while watching one of the greatest film noirs unfold. Then dance the night away as detectives and femme fatales.
