Film starts 9.15pm (doors open and bar from 8pm)

Arguably the best and most popular comedy ever made, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis star in Billy Wilder’s classic screwball tale of love, cross-dressing Jazz musicians and gangsters.

When slick saxophone player Joe and his long suffering buddy Jerry are forced to go on the run after witnessing the Valentine's Day gangland massacre, they are forced to improvise a quick plan of escape. They decide to disguise themselves as women and join Sweet Sue’s all-girl jazz band on the next train bound for sunny Florida. As Joe falls for Sugar Kane (Monroe), the band's ukulele player, and tries to impress her with stories of wealth and fortune, Jerry finds himself pursued enthusiastically by real a millionaire as things begin to heat up and the mobsters close in. The perfect film in the perfect setting – dress in your finest 20’s spats!

Dir. Billy Wilder, US, 1959, 121 mins.
Cast. Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis
