On Saturday the 5 May, Film Fatale — Dublin’s most glamorous film event — will screen Bette Davis’ finest performance in the superb All About Eve in The Sugar Club, Dublin.
This night of cinema nostalgia and old–style Hollywood sophistication will transport the audience back to the 1950s for a night of film, vintage fashion, dancing and good old-fashioned fun.
A screening of Joseph L Mankiewicz's Oscar-winning drama will be followed by an elegant 1950s ball mirroring the film’s award ceremony with live performances, while Film Fatale’s resident DJs, The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers, will play music from the film’s era. The audience is invited to help set the scene by dressing in their vintage finest, paying homage to 1950s glamour or emulating the characters from the film.
All about Eve is an elegantly bitchy backstage story of ambition, betrayal and the theatre. Bette Davis stars as Margo Channing, an aging Broadway star who takes teh seemingly naive aspiring actress Eve Harrington(Anne Baxter) under her wing but Eve insinuates herself into Margo's life and palce on the stage.
Tickets €15 will be available at Entertainment.ie from Thursday.
Doors from 8pm. 1950s Ball from 11pm with tickets at the door (€5)
