Film Fatale presents: The Big Sleep

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.

Film Fatale brings Breakfast at Tiffany's to The Pavillion Cork

Film Fatale, Ireland’s most glamorous film event, will celebrate the 60s in style on Friday, 21 June, with a screening of Audrey Hepburn’s most iconic film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, in a themed night at The Pavilion, Cork. 

This night of cinema nostalgia and old–style Hollywood glamour will transport the audience back to the era of cinema’s most iconic party girl, Holly Golightly, for a night of film, vintage music, cocktails, dancing and good old-fashioned fun.

Movie lovers will be treated to live music including Henri Mancini’s unforgettable ‘Moon River’ from the film, while a screening of Blake Edward’s classic romantic comedy will be followed by a party, á la Brothers Golightly, with Film Fatale’s resident DJs, The Andrews Sisters’, who will play an exclusive set inspired by the movie.

The audience is invited to help set the scene by dressing up in their vintage finest, paying homage to the high fashion and mod style of the film, emulating Audrey Hepburn or one of her many dashing suitors.

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.

Sit back in the glamorous surroundings of the Pavilion, enjoy a classic signature cocktail designed especially for the night, have the Film Fatale usherettes serve you popcorn while watching one of the greatest love stories unfold, before dancing the night away as if you were a guest at one of Holly Golightly’s distinguished parties.

Film Fatale presents:Notorious

It is the film famous for one of the movies’ most epic kisses — a two-and-a-half minute kissathon between Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant. It was near scandalous at the time, but today we love Alfred Hitchock’s Notorious as one of his greatest spy romances. 

Now, the ever-glamorous Notorious is the June film for Film Fatale, Ireland’s most glamorous film event. Mark Friday 7 June as a night of espionage, affairs, bespoke cocktails, 40s vintage fashion and retro music. 
Ingrid Bergman, a notorious woman of many desires, and Cary Grant, government agent and adventurous man of the world, become intimately entangled during an espionage operation. Set in the backdrop of a post-WWII Rio de Janeiro summer, Grant must convince Bergman to seduce Claude Rains’ Nazi and spy on him. This dangerous love triangle is both a stunning masterpiece and a dark intriguing brew of lust and temptation.

A screening of Notorious will be followed by a 1940s summer party mirroring the style of the film, with performances from 40s sweethearts harmony trio The Bugle Babes following Film Fatale’s resident DJs, The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers, who will be playing dance floor fillers from the 20s to 60s. The audience is invited to help set the scene by dressing in their vintage finest, paying homage to 1940s or mirroring the stars of the film Cary Grant or the stunning Ingrid Bergman.

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 Hitchcock’s most elegantly crafted thrillers unfold. Then dance the night away in a night of cinema nostalgia and old–style Hollywood glamour.
