Movie lovers, put on your glad rags and step back in time for a nostalgic Saturday night at the movies where you will immerse yourself in the world of your favourite classic films. On Saturday the 4th of June, The Sugar Club will be transformed into Rick's Café Américain for a screening of one of the world’s all-time favourite films Casablanca.
A screening of Casablanca will be followed by a Moroccan-themed 1940s after-party with “As Time Goes By’ on the piano and DJs, the Andrews Sisters’ Brothers, playing music from the era. The audience is invited to help set the scene by dressing in their vintage finest, playing homage to 1940s Hollywood or going all out with a military or Moroccan theme.
Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) must find safe transport out of WWII Morocco for herself and her resistance leader husband Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid). With the Nazis hot on their trail, her only hope is old love, Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), an American expatriate and war profiteer who runs Rick’s Cafe.
Join in with the battle of the National anthems, quote along with some of the finest dialogue in movie history, and get swept up by the greatest romance of all time. An ageless film that gets better with every viewing, there is no better way to watch Casablanca than with a cocktail in our own version of Rick’s Bar.
Dublin’s bi-monthly film event Film Fatale is all about glamorous movies and old-fashioned fun, transporting audiences back to the golden age of cinema. Screening the crème de la crème of classic films in the sumptuous surroundings of the Sugar Club, this night of cinema nostalgia and old-style Hollywood glamour mirrors the style of the films being screened.
Saturday the 4th of June at 8pm, The Sugar Club, 8 Lower Lesson Street, Dublin 2. Tickets €15 are available at www.tickets.ie. After-party from 11pm with tickets at the door (€5).
