Classic Film: Film Fatale returns with Psycho and Back to the Future
EECH! EECH! EECH! EECH! EECH! It’s the sound of terror! Celebrating the Halloween season in true style, Film Fatale will unleash Alfred Hitchcock’s chic and chilling classic Psycho on Saturday 18 October.
Few Hollywood directors can combine horror with couture to such creepy effect, making Hitchcock’s Psycho the perfect Film Fatale film leading up to Halloween.
A femme fatale on the run and a shy, handsome in-keeper with a secret, director Alfred Hitchcock brings us on a journey to The Bates Motel, a remote, aged lodge with a terrifying story to tell. Who is Norman Bates? And what is wrong with his mother? Is anyone in the Bates Motel safe? Even if you know the answers, you still can’t prepare for the scares that are so beautifully punctuated by Bernard Herrmann’s score of screeching violins, violas and cellos.
The Film Fatale Swingin’ Sixties party will follow the screening, where you can do the Twist to our live band, go-go dance to legendary 1960s-esque DJ Dandelion and dance yours socks off to resident retro DJs The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers, who will be 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 1960s or mirroring the famed sartorial style of Hitchcock’s heroines. Film Fatale will set the scene with a mini recreation of the 1960s in The Sugar Club side bar — a perfect chill-out room where you can step away from the busy dance floor and sit back with your 1960s bespoke cocktail designed especially for the night.
Tickets to Psycho, priced at €15/€16, are available at http://entertainment.ie/tickets. Doors open at 8pm. Swinging Sixties Vintage after-party from 11pm with tickets €7 on the door.
Film Fatale will be back again on November 15th with Back to The Future and The Enchantment Under The Sea Dance. An event Cinema screening with a re-imagining of the famous school dance, complete with a Delorean parked outside. Film Fatale will finish the year in true style with a screening of the glitzy musical extravaganza, White Christmas in December.
