‘A joyful classic which delivers on comedic value no matter how many times you’ve seen it’ – Empire
Billy Wilder’s 1959 classic Some Like It Hot is a screwball romantic comedy that is undoubtedly one of the best of all time. Starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon, you’ll enjoy its charm, glitz, glamour and wit.
Two musicians (Curtis and Lemmon) witness a gangster’s revenge (inspired by real-life events of 1929) but are seen fleeing the scene. To escape, they dress in drag and join the all-female band Sweet Sue and Her Society Syncopators, bound for Miami. When they meet the band’s sultry singer, Sugar ‘Kane’ Kowalczyk (Monroe), the film really starts to sizzle!
Don’t miss this chance to see the incomparable Monroe, larger than life, at the National Archives in the Parliamentary Triangle. Ticket includes a drink on arrival.
Runtime: 121 minutes
Screened in association with Underworld: Mugshots from the Roaring Twenties, a travelling exhibition from Sydney Living Museums.
