Welcome to a new era of Monday Matinees at the Elisha D. Smith public library! The 4th Monday will be devoted to a showing of a classic film. Join us each month for a new (old!) acclaimed Hollywood movie from the last 75 years-featuring the best comedies, suspense and drama, westerns, musicals and science fiction-fantasy films. Each film will have a brief, but informative, introduction to provide context and allow for a deeper appreciation of the film.
First up is Some Like it Hot. This film stars Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis and was directed by Billy Wilder in 1959. Two male musicians go on the lam posing as women in an all-girl orchestra after witnessing a gangland massacre in 1929 Chicago. Runtime: 105 minutes.
