Film Fatale, Dublin’s most glamorous bi-monthly film event, is back once again! For those that don’t know Film Fatale is all about bringing back a touch of Hollywood glamour to the cinemas of Dublin. Their latest event brings a touch of 40′s glamour to the capital with a special screening of the legendary Casablanca.

The film sees Ingrid Bergman, as Isla, try to 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. If you’ve never seen this classic war-torn movie in all it’s glory this will be a must-attend event.

The screening 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. Sounds like fun!

The event takes place in The Sugar Club, 8 Lower Leeson Street, Dublin 2. Tickets, which are priced €15, are available at tickets.ie. The after-party kicks off at 11pm with tickets at the door (€5).. For more information see their website or follow them on Facebook.
