LIKING IT HOT

   "Some Like it Hot" starring Marilyn Monroe screens as part of the Miami Beach Cinematheque’s "Marilyn: 50 Years Later" retrospective and exhibition. Joe and Jerry, two Chicago musicians who witness the St. Valentine’s Massacre, and need to get out of town, take the only gig they know of: replacement sax and bass for an all-girl band on its way to Miami.

Marilyn Monroe is the ukulele player in the band, and that presents another problem for the boys. 8 p.m. Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. $8 members. $9 seniors and students. $10 others.
