The event also marks the opening of a new exhibition charting the history of The Assembly House, as part of a year of events celebrating the history of the building.

Some Like It Hot (PG) 1959

Director Billy Wilder’s Hollywood classic, featuring an iconic performance from Marilyn Monroe.

Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon play jazz musicians on the run after witnessing the St Valentine’s Day massacre, masquerading in drag as members of an all-girl band to escape the clutches of Chicago mobster George Raft.

Each man has his own problems; one falls for another band member but can’t tell her his gender, and the other has a rich suitor who will not take “No,” for an answer.
