As part of its ongoing monthly centennial celebrations, Hotel Galvez & Spa, A Wyndham Grand® Hotel, will feature a special showing of “Some Like It Hot” for its Cinema and Café Under the Stars on Friday, March 18. This 1959 classic movie will be shown on the front lawn of the hotel at 8 p.m. and features Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. “Some Like It Hot” was filmed at another historic hotel – Hotel del Coronado in Coronado, Ca.
The movie is a comedy about two struggling musicians, Joe and Jerry (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon), who witness what looks like the Saint Valentine's Day massacre of 1929. When the Chicago gangsters see them, they flee for their lives and take a job that requires them to disguise themselves as women, playing in an all-girl musical band headed to Florida. They join the band and board a train and both become enamored of "Sugar Kane" (Marilyn Monroe), the band's vocalist and ukulele player, and struggle for her affection while maintaining their disguises.
The movie is open to the public and hotel guests. Hotel Galvez is offering lawn/open seating and reserved seating for this special movie showing.
