Many classic films are just as powerful today as when they were first released. We add such films from many genres to our schedule throughout the season. Many are shown on the occasion of their rereleases, in fresh, new or restored prints.

"What a work of art and nature is Marilyn Monroe.… Wilder's 1959 comedy is one of the enduring treasures of the movies, a film of inspiration and meticulous craft."—Roger Ebert

Some Like It Hot is one of our most beloved screen comedies. Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis play musicians who witness a mob execution and then don dresses and join an all-female band to escape the crooks who want to silence them. Things get even more interesting when Curtis, in drag, falls for the band's curvaceous singer, played by Monroe. (122 mins., 35mm)

Jean Dubuffet, Vaches au pre (Cows in a meadow), 1954
