Film Fatale celebrates the last days of summer with Audrey Hepburn in ‘Sabrina’
On Saturday 8th September, Film Fatale, Ireland’s most glamorous film event, will end the summer in style with a screening of Audrey Hepburn in Billy Wilder’s classic romantic comedy Sabrina. This night of cinema nostalgia and old–style Hollywood glamour will transport the audience back to a 1950s summer for a night of film, vintage music, cocktails and dancing.
The screening will be followed by a 1950s after-party with a live performance from retro maestros Jaime Nanci and The Blue Boys who will be playing songs inspired by the film and modern songs with a vintage twist. This will be followed by Film Fatale’s resident DJs, The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers who will play music from the era. The audience is invited to help set the scene by dressing up in their vintage finest, paying homage to the 1950s or mirroring the characters of Hepburn and William Holden and Humphrey Bogart.
Billy Wilder’s sweet romantic comedy stars a young and radiant Audrey Hepburn as Sabrina Fairchild, the naïve daughter of a chauffeur who pines after the younger son of the Larrabee’s (William Holden), her father’s Wealthy employers. Sabrina goes to Paris as a girl and returns two years later as an elegant worldly young woman who catches the eye of the her childhood crush — the free spirited David Larabee and also his older brother Linus (Humphrey Bogart), the more serious and hard-working brother.
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 this light hearted love triangle un-fold. Then dance the night away 1950s style.
