movie club feature: Film Fatale at The Sugar ClubNo Comment
As you may or may not realise, Ireland has a bit of a love affair with cinema. We have one of the highest per capita cinema admissions figures in the world and I’m sure you’ve noticed, we talk about films all the time. What you may not also realise is that there are a great many smaller film events going on all the time around the country. I’m hoping to start highlighting one each month so if you run a film event or movie club, get in touch with me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll be happy to see what I can do!
I thought I’d start with Film Fatale since I actually know some of the people behind it. Every month or few, guys and gals slip into their Sunday best to celebrate a classic of cinema with Film Fatale in The Sugar Club. So far the films they’ve shown include Some Like It Hot, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Casablanca, Roman Holiday and Double Indemnity and they’re capping off the year with the musical extravaganza, Singin’ in the Rain on 17th December.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that this is just some ordinary night watching a film though. No, no, the folks behind Film Fatale have much more in store for you. The crew bill their nights as the most glamorous film events in Dublin and judging by some of their photos of the events they might just be right. Each event is themed on a decade and they promise a night of “film, vintage music, cocktails, dancing and good old-fashioned fun” and I’m sure they’re the kind of guys who keep their promises.
If this sounds like something you want to get in on, visit them over at their Facebook page (facebook.com/filmfataleevents) or at their blog (Film Fatale). In addition to news about their upcoming events, they regularly post information (and even tutorials) on the fashion and music of the era for the theme of the night.
You can book tickets for their next event on December 17th 2011 at 8pm over at tickets @ entertainment.ie
