Some Like It Hot comes to Fifth Avenue Cinemas
As part of its See Again series, Fifth Avenue Cinemas is hosting a fundraising screening of Some Like It Hot this Saturday (April 21) at 10 a.m.
The 1959 black-and-white comedy stars Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon in a story about two musicians (Curtis and Lemmon) who accidentally witness a mob hit and must flee the state disguised as women in an all-female band. However, complications ensue when the two friends both fall in love with vocalist-ukulele player Sugar Kane (Monroe), men become enamoured of their female personas, and the mobsters make another appearance.
Watch the trailer for Some Like It Hot.
Tickets for the screening are $8 at the door, with proceeds going to Seva Canada, a Vancouver-based charity that fights blindness and restores vision in Nepal, Tibet, India, Tanzania and eastern Africa, Guatemala, Cambodia, Egypt, Malawi, and Madagascar.
