Prohibition is back


Saturday 14th March
IMMA, The Royal Hospital Kilmainham

Irelands biggest Prohibition Party is back, this time even bigger and better.

Join us on 14 March for an alternative St Patrick’s Weekend party, as Film Fatale returns the Prohibition-era experience to Dublin’s IMMA for a party that will relive the decadent days of Gatsby, gangsters, flappers and 1920s glamour.

Dublin’s IMMA will be transformed once more into an opulent 1920s fancy-dress party, the kind of elegant yet wild soire that would do Jay Gatsby proud. It will be even bigger as we open up more secret rooms, more bars, more performers, a silent cinema and more sparkle, glitz and glamour.

Inside the majestic doors of IMMA, there will gambling gangsters, fast-footed dancing flappers in sparkling ensembles, exotic fan dancers, and people Lindy Hopping to our 1920s ragtime band Saint John the Gambler. Meanwhile, you can do the Charleston to retro DJs The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers or dance your socks off to an Electro-swing set by DJ Mimi Rouge.

There will be one room dedicated solely to 1920s and 1930s Prohibition era, the music it has inspired and dance-your-socks off electro swing. IMMA’s gothic chapel will become the Punch Parlour, a perfect place to drink prohibition-era “bathtub gin” and dance to your favourite vintage hits from the 1920s to the 70s.

Show your moxy through the rags you wear and set the scene by dressing up in your vintage finest or pay homage to 1920s silent movie stars, dames and fellas, flappers and philosophers, or gangsters and their molls.

Tell your friends, people you like but trust but no one else — this event is on the QT so shhh! Keep your trap shut, don’t wear iron and no funny business or we’ll all end up under glass. 


It’s gonna be swell kid!

Saturday 7th February
The Sugar Club, Dublin

Happy birthday Film Fatale! Help celebrate the fourth birthday of Dublin’s most glamorous event on Saturday 7 February with a red carpet screening of Audrey Hepburn’s timelessly stylish film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. 

Walk the red carpet. Have your picture taken at our photo booth. Relax at your cabaret table with a glass of Holly’s famous party punch or a 1960s classic cocktail and fresh cinema popcorn served from the Film Fatale usherettes. There will also be unlimited birthday cake and pre-film live music including Henri Mancini’s unforgettable ‘Moon River’ from the film.

The film will be followed by the Swinging Sixties Vintage Party that will take you back in time to the decadent days of cinema’s most iconic party girl, Holly Golightly, for a night of vintage fashion, retro music, cocktails, dancing and good old-fashioned fun in Dublin's Sugar Club.

Was there ever so elegant a heroine as Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly? Her charm and sparkle have touched audiences for over half a century. The deliciously eccentric New York city playgirl is determined to marry a Brazilian millionaire but her long-suffering neighbour George Peppard has other plans.

The after-party will feature live music and Film Fatale’s resident retro DJs The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers who will play dancefloor fillers from the late 1950s through to the 1970s and the days of Disco.

This red carpet, glamorous extravaganza has a vintage dress code, so come along in your finest vintage ensembles or pay homage to the high fashion and mod style of the film, emulating Audrey Hepburn or one of her many dashing suitors.
