MARILYN MONROE MOVIE MATINEES

Following the success of our matinee program centered around the Audrey Hepburn exhibition we’ve decided to follow-up with a series focussing on various beloved screen icons. First up will be one of the world’s most enduring, and sadly tragic, female icons of 50’s Hollywood, Marilyn Monroe.

The most endlessly talked-about and mythologized figure in Hollywood history, Marilyn Monroe remains the ultimate superstar, her rise and fall the stuff that both dreams and nightmares are made of. Innocent, vulnerable, and impossibly alluring, she defined the very essence of screen sexuality. Rising from pin-up girl to international superstar, she was a gifted comedienne whom the camera adored, a luminous and incomparably magnetic screen presence. In short, she had it all, yet her career and life came crashing to a tragic halt, a Cinderella story gone horribly wrong; dead before her time – her fragile beauty trapped in amber, impervious to the ravages of age – Monroe endures as the movies’ greatest and most beloved icon, a legend eclipsing all others.

 

Due to the theatrical screening materials available to us these screenings do not feature any subtitles!
