Coming: Some Like it Hot - The Best Comedy film ever made

The day after Thanksgiving: 
Friday, November 23 at 7 PM
Some Like it Hot

Both the American Film Institute and the BBC agree it's the best comedy film ever made...


Wolf down that turkey sandwich and some leftover dressing, and head to downtown Vicksburg, because director, Billy Wilder's hilarious comedy featuring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon comes to the Strand the day after Thanksgiving. (And if it's cold outside, dress warmly.)

Two down on their luck jazz musicians find themselves out of a job and on the run after the police raid the speakeasy they perform in and they inadvertently stumble upon a gang war. With no money and nowhere to hide, a gig with Sweet Sue and her Society Syncopators at a Florida beach resort seems like the perfect getaway. There’s just one problem: the Syncopators are an all-female band, and Joe and Jerry aren’t women - yet.

Armed with some dodgy wigs and wobbly falsettos, Joe and Jerry manage to join the Syncopators, where they meet Sugar Kane: a hooch-swilling, ukulele-playing knockout with a soft spot for badboy saxophone players. Barely able to believe their good fortune, things start to go off the rails for the pair when they begin to attract unwanted attention from lecherous millionaires and some familiar faces show up at their hotel for a gathering of the country’s most dangerous criminals.
