Before the film, Derby Browne will sing summer songs from the fifties to get the audience in the mood. The screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s beguiling thriller will be followed by a 1950s summer party mirroring the style of the film with Film Fatale’s resident DJs, The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers, playing music from the film’s era. The audience is invited to help set the scene by dressing up in their vintage finest, paying homage to 1950s or mirroring the stars of the film James Stewart or the stunning Grace Kelly.
Rear Window sees James Stewart as Manhattan photographer L.B. Jefferies, who is confined to his apartment with a broken leg and has nothing to do but to take up the art of spying. During a summer heat wave Stewart lives vicariously through his neighbours’ lives and despite warnings from his beautiful girlfriend Lisa (Grace Kelly) or his motherly nurse Stella (Thelma Ritter) he gets in too deep when he spies a potential murder.
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 tales of murder, mystery and suspense before you dance the night away.
