Movie lovers, put on your glad rags and step back in time to a nostalgic Saturday night at the movies where you will immerse yourself in the world of your favourite classic films. On Saturday the 9th June, Film Fatale will screen cinema legends, Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart in the hilarious comedy of manners The Philadelphia Story in The Sugar Club, Dublin. This screening of George Cukor’s sophisticated screwball comedy will be followed by a 1940s swing dance with live performances from The Bugle Babes — Ireland’s own version of the 1940s chart toppers the Andrews Sisters. 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 1940s glamour or emulating the characters from the film. The greatest screwball comedy of the 1940s, The Philadelphia Story is a tale of sex, class, bad manners and media intrusion. It features Katherine Hepburn who plays a socialite divorcée caught between flawed ex-husband Cary Grant and a respectable but somehow unsuitable fiancé (John Howard). Throw disgruntled novelist-reporter Jimmy Stewart and his colleague and special lady-friend (Ruth Hussey) into the mix, add a few too many bottles of champagne on the eve of the wedding and you have the makings of a great comic calamity.
This night of cinema nostalgia and old–style Hollywood sophistication will transport the audience back to the golden age of 1940s Hollywood for a night of film, vintage fashion, dancing and good old-fashioned fun.
