This film was last shown on 30 April 2024

After witnessing a Mafia murder, slick saxophone player Joe (Tony Curtis) and his long-suffering buddy, Jerry (Jack Lemmon), improvise a quick plan to escape from Chicago with their lives. Disguising themselves as women, they join an all-female jazz band and hop a train bound for sunny Florida. While Joe pretends to be a millionaire to win the band's singer, Sugar (Marilyn Monroe), Jerry finds himself pursued by a real millionaire (Joe E. Brown) as things heat up and the mobsters close in.

In 1989, the Library of Congress selected it as one of the first 25 films for preservation in the United States National Film Registry for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant", and the overwhelming success of Some Like It Hot is considered one of the reasons behind the retirement of the Hays Code.

Monthly Dementia-Friendly Screenings at Showroom Cinema play on the final Tuesday of each month and offer the chance for all audiences to revisit big screen classics in a comfortable environment.
