This double bill pairs two of Marilyn Monroe's signature roles.

In The Seven Year Itch, another iconic comedy starring Monroe, Tom Ewell tries to resist the temptations posed by the young woman (Monroe) who lives in the apartment above his when his wife goes away for the summer. This is the movie that produced the memorable image of Monroe and her billowing white dress standing over a subway grate. (105 mins.)

Monroe did some of her finest acting in Bus Stop. A cowboy (played by Don Murray) falls in love with a saloon singer from Phoenix (Monroe) and attempts to kidnap her in order to take her to his ranch in Montana. (96 mins., 35mm)

Bus Stop begins at 8:50 PM.
