Film Fatale presents: It’s a Wonderful Life

its_a_wonderful_life_stort

Deck the halls, rock around the Christmas tree and celebrate the festive season the good old fashioned way with Film Fatale.

On Saturday 7 December, Film Fatale will celebrate Christmas in vintage style with a screening of the world’s most beloved classic Christmas movie, It’s a Wonderful Life, followed by a night of vintage fashion, retro music, Christmas cocktails and good old-fashioned fun, in The Sugar Club, Dublin.

Get in the festive mood by dressing up your most dashing suit or glittering vintage Christmas ensemble for a screening of It’s a wonderful life. Then celebrate by swing-dancing to the jazz-tastic Jaime Nanci and The Blue Boys playing your Film Fatale favourites and modern songs with a vintage twist, and jitterbug to DJs The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers favourite dancefloor fillers from the 1920s to the 70s. Drink bespoke vintage cocktails, join in the conga line or simply chill out in The Christmas cabin (The Sugar Club’s newly decorated side bar).

Capra’s classic bittersweet comedy/drama Christmas classic has the power to melt the coldest heart. James Stewart stars as George Bailey the eternally-in-debt guiding force of a bank in the typical American small town of Bedford Falls. Bailey considers himself a failure, never having left his small town despite his yearning to see the world and sacrificed his personal ambitions for the sake of his family and the local community, settling down to marry his childhood sweetheart, Mary (Donna Reed), and raise a family.

On Christmas Eve, 1946, a huge amount of money goes missing from the savings and loans company that he works for, he panics and finds himself preparing to commit suicide. However, he is shown the error of this idea by Clarence (Henry Travers), an angel who has been sent to Earth in order to earn his wings.

Film Fatale’s Annual Film Noir Party presents: The Big Sleep

annex_20-_20bacall__20lauren_20_big_20sleep__20the__01

 

Men, don your mac and fedora. Ladies, daub that carmine lipstick. It’s time to step out of the shadows for a night of murder, mystery and intrigue as Film Fatale presents The Big Sleep.

On Saturday 23 November, Film Fatale will take you to the 1940s for a night of film, femme fatales, detectives, cocktails, vintage music and the silver screen’s favourite couple Bogey and Bacall.

Come dressed as a hard-boiled detective or strut your stuff as a femme fatale. Whatever you choose, we want you to come vintage.

The Big Sleep, based on Raymond Chandler’s classic noir novel, stars Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall as a hard-boiled LA private eye and a rich heiress who become embroiled in a blackmail case. The trail leads to murderers, spoiled millionaires, nightclub rogues and pornographers.

The film is as salty as a dirty martini. The dialogue as snappy as Bacall’s garter belt. Bogey and Bacall simply sizzle on screen together.

The screening of this classic Howard Hawk film will be followed by a 1940s noir-themed party mirroring the style of the film with live performances and Film Fatale’s resident DJs, The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers who will be playing music from the era with a sexy noir twist.

Tickets to The Big Sleep €14/€15 are available at http://entertainment.ie/tickets. Doors  8pm, screening 9pm. Vintage after-party from 11pm with tickets €5 on the door.

Film Fatale present ‘Funny Face’

funny8

 

On Saturday 27 July, Film Fatale will celebrate the summer in style with a screening of Audrey Hepburn in Stanley Donen’s classic musical, romcom Funny Face. This night of cinema nostalgia and old–style Hollywood glamour will transport the audience back to a 1950s summer for a night of film, vintage music, cocktails and dancing.

The screening, which will be Film Fatale’s last event until late Autumn, will be followed by a 1950s after-party with a live performance from retro maestros Jaime Nanci and The Blue Boys who will be playing songs inspired by the film and modern songs with a vintage twist. This will be followed by Film Fatale’s resident DJs, The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers who will play music from the era. The audience is invited to help set the scene by dressing up in their vintage finest, paying homage to the 1950s or mirroring the characters of Hepburn and Astaire.

The utterly charming and entertaining film version of George Gershwin Broadway musical Funny Face stars original star, Fred Astaire as fashion photographer Dick Avery. Dick has been sent out by his boss Maggie Prescott (Kay Thompson) to find a “new face” one unlike all the current models, a girl who has grace, elegance, pizzazz, character, spirit, and intelligence. He finds all these and more in Greenwich Village bookstore worker Jo, a never lovelier Audrey Hepburn who is more interested in intellectual pursuits than being a model.

Won over by the chance to meet a famed Parisian professor, she joins him in Paris where music, romance and a comedy of errors ensue. With famed songs like “S’wonderful”, Funny Face was also made famous by Audrey Hepburn’s jazz club dance made famous again when Gap brought it back to our televisions for a recent commercial.

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 Audrey Hepburn express herself through dance before following in her footsteps and dancing the night away 1950s style.

Tickets €14/€15 are available at http://entertainment.ie/tickets. Doors open at 8pm. After-party from 11pm with tickets at the door (€5)

We all know the story of Casablanca. Boy meets girl, girl leaves boy and several years later she walks into his gin joint in WWII Morocco Iooking for safe transport out for herself and her resistance leader husband.

All give outstanding performances and do justice to some of the finest dialogue in movie history.
