Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
Whether blonde, brunette or redhead, all are welcome no matter whom the gentlemen prefer, to The Sugar Club’s screening of Howard Hawks’ classic Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
Get your glad rags on as Film Fatale host an evening of vintage fashion, retro music, classic cocktails, Hollywood glamour and some good old-fashioned fun. A veritable musical extravaganza, enjoy the enrapturing performance that catapulted Marilyn Monroe to fame and the unequivocal sass of screen legend Jane Russell.
Master of the silver screen, director Howard Hawks delivers an exciting 50s musical caper as showgirls Dorothy and Lorelei stumble through the travails of love. Flirtatious platinum blonde Lorelei is committed to marrying a millionaire so that love won’t be tainted by money worries, while the sharp-tongued, raven-haired Dorothy follows her heart towards all the wrong kinds of men.
Embrace the style of the 1950s by coming clad in your finest vintage clothing, snappiest suits or even your cheesiest Hawaiian shirt.
After the screening, swing the night away at The Film Fatale Fabulous Fifties Vintage Dance with a live band and resident retro DJs The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers. The venue will be kitted out with a special summer Tiki Garden, a nifty 1950s outdoor Tiki Bar, complete with kitsch summer songs and tasty summer cocktails.
