Film Screening: Some Like It Hot

EnlargeStargazing on the High Line

Some Like it Hot has been postponed due to the weather. Please check the website for an update later.

Join Friends of the High Line for an open-air film screening glamorously paying homage to the history of the High Line, which once carried freight trains delivering dairy, meat, produce, and other goods into the warehouses and factories on Manhattan’s West Side.

Considered one of the greatest American comedies of all time, Some Like It Hot is the classic screwball comedy, in which Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon play two musicians on a cross-dressing mission to save themselves from the mafia, and encounter the never-better Marilyn Monroe in the sleeper car of a passenger train bound for a Florida resort. Some Like It Hot was directed by Billy Wilder, and debuted in 1959.

All Aboard! will be screened following the feature presentation.
