On Saturday 31st March, Film Fatale, Dublin’s most glamorous film event, will screen Hitchcock’s classic suspense thriller, North by Northwest in a night of cinema nostalgia and old–style Hollywood glamour that will transport the audience back to the 1950s for a night of film, vintage music, cocktails and dancing.
Long before Mad Men’s Don Draper graced Madison Avenue, there was Cary Grant’s Roger Thornhill, the dashing and debonair advertising executive who is mistaken for a spy.
North by Northwest sees Cary Grant as a Manhattan ad man pursued across the country while he looks for a way to survive. Most men would crumble, but Thornhill is smooth, suave and calm under pressure, he is never less than devastatingly handsome in that iconic grey suit. He even has time to charm the ice-cool Eve (Eva Saint Marie) — one of Hitchcock’s greatest blondes.
A screening of North by Northwest will be followed by a 1950s Madmen-esque party with a live performance from Jaime Nancy and the Blue Boys and Film Fatale’s resident DJs, The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers, playing music from the era. The audience is invited to help set the scene by dressing up in their vintage finest, paying homage to 1950s or mirroring the stunning Eva Saint Marie or Cary Grant, who wore that famous grey suit as kidnapped ad man Roger Thornhill.
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 thrillers unfold. Then dance the night away.
