The fabulous dancers from Dublindy's Hep Cat Club will be opening the night with a routine inspired by Singin' in the Rain. A screening of Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly’s glorious Technicolour musical will be followed by a roaring 1920s themed party mirroring the style of the film with Jaime Nanci 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 as 1920s dames & fellas, in their vintage finest, paying homage to the glitzy musical style or emulating the characters from the film.
Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor and Debbie Reynolds star in a funny, affectionate, romantic nod to old Hollywood, specifically the troubled transition between silent and sound cinema. Jean Hagen steals the show as a screechy-voiced diva, but the real stars here are some of the finest song & dance numbers ever put on film, including O'Connor's acrobatic "Make 'em Laugh," the extraordinary "Broadway Melody/Broadway Rhythm" ballet between Kelly and Cyd Charisse, and, of course, Kelly's signature showstopper, "Singin' in the Rain."
In keeping with the classic cinema theme, the Film Fatale usherettes will be on hand serving popcorn and sweets and there will be a classic signature drink prepared especially for the night. Sit back in the sumptuous surroundings of the Sugar Club and enjoy a cocktail with Gene Kelly’s musical extravaganza before dancing the night away to ‘Singin' in the Rain’.
