Marilyn Monroe digs into dramatic roles in the character-driven The Misfits and the film noirish Don't Bother to Knock. In The Misfits, her final film, Monroe plays a divorcee looking for comfort in the company of cowboys played by Clark Gable, Eli Wallach, and Montgomery Clift. This was also Gable's final film. With a screenplay by Monroe's former husband, playwright Arthur Miller. (124 mins., 35mm)

Don’t Bother to Knock stars Richard Widmark as a just-dumped pilot who meets a young babysitter (Monroe) staying at his hotel and soon discovers she’s the last person who should be trusted with someone’s kid. (76 mins., 35mm)

Don't Bother to Knock begins at 9:15 PM.
