This August, our friends in The Sugar Club are going all Quentin Jerome Tarantino on us, with seven screenings of the director’s most iconic films.
There are some movies that just work, and Resevoir Dogs was one of those. It single-handedly launched the career of one of the movie industry’s most lauded directors, Quentin Tarantino, setting him on the beautiful path to celebrity and stardom. He did go on to prove that he was no one-hit wonder, with a catalogue of movie credits that any self-respecting director would give their right clapperboard for.
So, in recognition of the achievements of the great man, The Sugar Club has organised On the QT – Tarantino Week; A Tribute to Quentin Tarantino and His Work, running this August. As well as the screenings, there will be food, beverage, and gourmet popcorn table service. Screenings will be limited to 150 people, and Friday and Saturday screenings will be followed by afterparties with live music, DJs and a BBQ beforehand.
Doors are at 7:30pm for all screenings, with the movies starting at 8pm. The first screening takes place on Saturday, 1st August, and continue throughout the week. Tickets cost from €10 plus booking fees and may be reserved online.
