Rogue Aurora (She/Her) is a Drag Queen from Dublin who has a love for glamour, alternative fashion and the macabre. Unable to showcase her drag during lockdown, Rogue did what a lot of people did and turned to the internet where she would stream video games in full drag, take part in digital drag shows with other performers from all over the world and eventually start a YouTube channel where she regularly uploads videos of herself doing her makeup while discussing horror movies.
Film In Dublin caught up with Rogue to have a chat about some of her Movie Memories, horror origins, starting a Youtube channel and more.

If you love all things spooky, scary and/or skeleton-adjacent like we do here on Film In Dublin, then the month of October is basically your Christmas. And if your version of Halloween involves packing in as many scary movies as people during the month that’s in it, you’re spoiled for choice in the fair city of film over the next couple of weeks. There’s no shortage of alluring screenings to come from the likes of the Light House, the IFI and more. And as an extra little something-something, there’s a unique event coming to town for Halloween 2019 courtesy of a director who knows a thing or two about things that go bump in the night. Check out our guide to Halloween 2019 in the fair city of film.
As culture in our fair city of film continues to recede, bulldozed aside by the careless and artless to stick up a few more hotels, it is more important than ever to encourage those who share art for art’s own sake. Those who genuinely embrace the wonderful, the wild and the weird of cinema, rather than simply Press Up against it….
Cabaret Noise introduced themselves during the summer with their efforts to bring “cinemas greatest and most forgotten oddities” to venues and locations around Dublin and they will be returning in the weeks and months ahead with their second series, THE HARVEST BLOOD MOON, a selection of horror films about seasonal change that are set to take place at The Darkroom this autumn and winter, with admissions free of charge (and donations welcome).

Introducing…The Breakout Role Podcast!
Cinema-mad siblings Jess and Luke play judge, jury and executioner as they look back at the breakout, first leading roles of Hollywood Icons. From stunning debuts to the secrets actors thought long since buried, they decide were these first stabs at stardom worthy of a breakout, or were they more of a fakeout?

Though we at Film In Dublin love a prestigious evening of sophisticated cinema as much as the next website, there’s no doubt that sometimes it’s good to kick back and enjoy a late night of wild and weird cult movies. And who says the latter can’t have as much artistic intrigue and worthy discussion as the latter? Cabaret Noise certainly agree with us on that front. This new Dublin-based film events company are dedicated to bringing cinemas greatest and most forgotten oddities to all manner of venues and locations around Dublin, and they’ll be introducing themselves to the fair city of film with a series of oddities set to screen in Stoneybatter over the next few months.
