Some Like It Hot: Classic Movie Nights

Our Classic Movie Nights series continues with Billy Wilder's 1959 boundary-breaking comedic masterpiece, Some Like It Hot! Arrive early for a 15-minute pre-screening lecture by screenwriter & researcher Theo Siegel!

Two musicians (Tony Curtis & Jack Lemmon) witness a mob hit and struggle to find a way out of the city before they are found by the gangsters. Their only opportunity is to join an all-girl band as they leave on a tour. To make their getaway they must first disguise themselves as women, then keep their identities secret and deal with the problems this brings - such as an attractive bandmate (Marilyn Monroe) and a very determined suitor (Joe E. Brown).

Inspired by the 1935 French film, Fanfare of Love, Some Like It Hot is an uproariously funny caper and one of Wilder's most definitive works.
