The National presents its second evening of Film Noir at Sixty6 with Sunset Boulevard (1950) in association with Belfast Film Festival. Set in the confines of one of Belfast most stunning cocktail bars sympathetically restored to its original period features from the 1890s, experience an evening of Film Noir in style!
Sunset Boulevard (1950), Billy Wilder’s visionally stunning work of art is one of the original Film Noir movies that sets itself apart from anything else within its genre. A screenwriter is hired to rework a faded silent film star’s script only to find himself developing a dangerous relationship. Sunset Boulevard was nominated for 11 Academy Awards (including nominations in all four acting categories) and won three. It was also included in the first group of films selected for preservation in the American National Film Registry.
Ticket includes entry to screening with a cocktail on arrival, a small popcorn and some light bites. A bespoke cocktail menu will also be on offer tailored to the film and the cocktail bar will stay open throughout the evening. Limited spaces available!
