Movie Night

Image may contain: 3 people, text
Join for a screening of “Some Like it Hot” on Saturday, November 4th at 8 PM.

This is a classic Billy Wilder Film starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe, plus a host of others recognizable by anyone familiar with Bugs Bunny cartoons. Made in 1959 and set in 1929, the action starts with the Valentine’s Day Massacre, which our two heroes accidentally witness. They have to get out of Chicago to get away but the only opening is with an all women band. So they make some changes and hilarity ensues. I’m afraid Royal Dano is not in this movie, I know some of you will be disappointed. As always, popcorn will be provided.
