Join us for the film that cemented Marilyn Monroe’s status as a superstar and introduced the world to her iconic rendition of “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” (the lavish number would eventually inspire the music video for Madonna’s “Material Girl”).

Powerhouses Monroe and Jane Russell join forces as a pair of lounge singers looking for love in this playful comedy-musical. Reveling in its stars’ confidence and charisma, the film sends two women on a cruise from New York to Paris aboard a ship with an aging millionaire, private detective, and the entire men’s Olympic Team. A jubilant, winking romp that combines a luscious palate with sultry songs.

Directed by Howard Hawks.

Sweet Cream Co. will be serving special ice creams in our lobby before the screening.
